Am I reading this right, you can't borrow, lend or buy second hand games with the new machine?



If that's the case, I'll never own one, based just on economic principles. It would not only stick us with games we may not want, but it would destroy an entire industry of game stores, ebay commerce, etc. You can't stab a sister industry in the back like that.



Pretty sure both Sony and Microsoft are going to be freezing out the resale market this generation. I went into a gamestop recently and noticed that they have a lot more stuff besides console games than they used to. They have had to have known the writing was on the wall the day they started selling the games through the console.

Microsoft and Sony aren't going to start playing fair now. Too much on the line. Each new generation is a huge risk. Microsoft needs XBox to be one of the major ways people interact with media, they are already so far behind in the tablet market. This is Microsoft's breakout maneuver to keep from being encircled by Google and Apple. This is their response to AppleTV's and GoogleTV as much as it is a response to PS4 and Wii U. Sony needs PS4 even more, as a failure would cripple Sony and give them electronic dinosaur status. Panasonic used to have a console, too. Nintendo . . . well, if the Wii U fails there will be no such thing as Nintendo beyond a game publisher.

The lack of backwards compatibility is odd. I feel like if you made the PS4 or XboxOne backwards compatible you'd capture a decent amount of the PS3 or 360 market and the lack of compatibility just means you're gonna see more people hopping from Microsoft to Sony or Vice Versa.

I've had a 360 since it was released, and never owned a PS3. I'm definitely getting the PS4 when it comes out, I may wait a few months after release though as I really don't play too often nowadays

Lack of backward compatibility is pretty weak. Basically a slap in the face after purchasing any of their games. I know I've spent a pretty penny on games over the years, and some despite their age, I still throw in from time to time.

I'm probably not getting either of the next gen consoles. My interest in gaming is definitely on the decline and there would have to be a new Elder Scrolls or Fable game for me to even consider a new console. COD games are stale as hell, Gears and Halo have lost their novelty and GTA hasn't evolved at all in the past 4 releases.

At any rate, i'll never buy another Sony console again. PS1 was cool and a nice jump from my Nintendo cartridge era. PS2 was where it was at, great titles and functionality. PS3 is/was garbage. I bought a PS3 bundle when MGS released and I might have used it half a dozen times at most. Make no mistake, there is a very good reason that PSN is free and that is because it is absolute shit compared to xbox Live.

I am trying to figure out here for fans of The Walking Dead game (acade one) when continuing into season 2 how they are going to know what you did in season 1 if purchasing XBOX ONE.

This guy basically sums it for me. He goes off on the used games fee and mandatory game installation issues.

Any chance they end up doing what most companies do when there's consumer backlash and recant a decent amount of this foppery?
