Screw work

Watching Xbox stream.

They already have all my monies, I just want the date and the price so I now how much plasma to sell.


Reaction: underwhelmed and dubious.

What was not mentioned in the reveal, and what Kotaku is reporting, so take it with a grain of salt, is that games are automatically installed on first use at which point the disc is no longer needed but is tied to the Xbox Live account it was installed under. Wait for it...

They said there would be a fee to use the game with another account. If this is true, and I repeat, IF, this fundamentally breaks how I play games and could potentially shift me completely into the Sony camp, up to and including not buying the Xbox One.

The rate at which I consume games of varying quality simply would not be sustainable.

I don't care about the always on Kinect or the stupid name or the bevvy of TV apps that I will never use. If I can't play games the way I want to then the system is pointless to own.
