I wonder.

Let's say you buy a used XBox One game and download some patch to bypass the reactivation fee. Is that considered piracy?
I don't know about "piracy", but I will bet you would be in violation of the DMCA provision regarding circumventing electronic DRM.

Extrapolate: If you buy and play ANY used game without money going back to the original publisher, can that be considered piracy?
Nope, at least in terms of copyright that is perfectly kosher.

What if microsoft decides to challenge that when their used game activation fee is inevitably circumvented though?

Then they are morons because the proper route for that is to go after the DMCA claim because circumventing the game activation is almost certainly a DMCA violation while there is absolutely no chance of them managing to overturn the first sale doctrine of copyright.....wait we are talking about the company that developed the Xbone. Hmm, I might have a an entertaining Supreme Court case on this subject to look forward to in four to five years.

I suspect they'd be passive aggressive rather than openly hostile like that. WHOOPS, we lost that cardboard stand of that hot new release of yours! And put all the games behind the Vita cases, sorry but room's pretty tight.

"Microsoft has cancelled its E3 post-press conference roundtable w/ the media." -- Twitter

Posted by famousmortimer, NeoGAF:

"I mentioned the other day that I was hearing rumors of Microsoft throwing around a considerable amount of money to have publishers only show games on the Xbox One during E3. Most people dismissed my admittedly flakey news as 'that's what always happens.'

I've talked to more people since then though and this isn't the usual jostling for publishers on stage that happens at E3. Microsoft is throwing BIG money around to reverse course on idea that they aren't a games console. The rumors are that PS4 versions of multiplats, by those who do take the money, won't be shown AT ALL. Not on stage and not on the show floor.

I don't feel bad for Sony because business is business. I'm sure they will find a way to have a decent show... or they will have to recover afterwards. That's not really my concern.

Now, there's no need to take my word on this if you don't want to. But do keep an eye on E3 next week. With them buying up everything in sight and now potentially cutting an open roundtable out (to assumedly talk one on one with friendly press) and word that finding multiplat games on the PS4 on the show floor will be much harder than anticipated... just keep an eye on it. Maybe my sources are wrong. But I feel confident enough in this info to share it.

I'm not saying to jump to conclusions. I'm just saying it may be something to keep an eye on."

Further lending credence to my theory that Microsoft is hoping to keep people as uninformed and confused as possible in order to shield themselves from criticism and ensure buyers may blindly jump in.

So they're going with plan A after all. Do the exact same thing as the last 3-4 years except even more so in hopes that their targeted demographic is as misguided and financially irresponsible as they are. No damage control, no backpedaling, and no fucks given.

...I want to body slam him. With all my heart and soul. I just want to lift him into the air and rapidly drop him back o to the ground on his backside as hard as possible, preferably through a small table like they do in the WWE. Pretty sure I may inadvertently cause an extension of winter due to the earth's axis having been shifted....but by God I wish to body slam that man.
