For sure. Competition is good for the consumer, but Microsoft being this badly mismanaged practically begs for a good kick in the rear. They deserve to get beat for being so disconnected.

I never said I was a fan of always on but its not a deal-breaker for me. I knew it was coming sooner or later so I've chosen to deal with it. Otherwise, what? Boycott the system and miss out on some great games? No thanks.

If it's a Microsoft game, probably a fairly good chance they'll end up on PC eventually which is where I will then pick them up.

You know, I somehow suspect that most, if not all that Microsoft showed this year, will end up on another platform within a year of its release.

So it's confirmed that the PS4 has a $399 pricetag, will be able to play used games, won't require users to check in periodically, and won't stop working if you haven't authenticated in 24 hours.

So...yeah, what's the point of buying a glorified television that turns into a rock without an internet connection? Especially when Sony has none of those huge drawbacks that Xbone has.

Getting Halo or some other exclusive you want, sticking with where all your friends are going, being ignorant, or just being thick/mindlessly loyal to Microsoft.

I wonder if they had a used game DRM plan in the works, but nixed it because of the Xbone backlash thinking that nixing it could provide a competitive advantage over the Xbone.  I guess we'll never know, but I suppose the end result is all that really matters.

What I was hearing was that they were considering offline DRM, probably that RFID thing that was patented. I wonder if complications arose, they were going to scrap it regardless, or if they saw a golden opportunity to go all out on Microsoft, but regardless it's a win for us.

Would the offline RFID thing amounted to basically being a permanent CD key or something? That sounds reasonable.

Yeah, so it turns out Killer Instinct is free to play.

And only one character is free.

You'll have to connect to the Internet in order to authorize that code, and the code can only be used once. Once you use it, that game will then be linked to your Xbox Live account. "It sits on your hard drive and you have permission to play that game as long as you'd like.

You'll have to pay a fee and not just some sort of activation fee, but the actual price of that game in order to use a game's code on a friend's account.

The Xbox One will still feature regional locks.

Killer Instinct is a day-one digital-only release on Xbox One, and features one character. Jago is free to play on launch day. Everyone else -- unspecified returning characters as well as original fighters -- will cost money. Price is to-be-determined.

Asian gamers will apparently have to wait those six months, plus an additional twelve, to pick up their Xbox One. According to Alan Bowman, Microsoft's Regional VP for Sales and Marketing in Asia, the new console will launch in Taiwan, Hong Kong, Singapore, South Korea and India around late 2014. (Note the lack of Japan on that list)

Well, again, it doesn't corcern me all that much personally but given Sony's stand on the isuues not to mention the indie support and price...MS is in a pickle right now.

I'm not usually a fan of this particular meme... but it's pretty fitting in this case.

(And congrats on making 2000 posts, even though you missed it.)

And it turns out that Rare isn't even actually making the game.
