Re: Offiical XBox (3) Launch Thread

They've backpeddled on that, but haven't explained how it'll still work if you can't connect to live because you've been banned.

Seriously?

Has the cheese slipped entirely off their crackers?

They have? Hadn't heard. Hard to keep up with what's happening with the XBone, to be honest since it's all clear as mud. There was even something parodied that I mistook for being real since it just seemed like an extension on their attitude with the XBone, so I never posted it here. Still, MS hasn't helped their position any.

Look's to me like EA and all the other greedy publishers sent a sealed evenlope round to MS on the day of E3 and told them to only open and read everything from it 1 min before the show, because that's how it looks.

Larry Hryb was asked about banned accounts and games access in a recent reddit interview.

I'll let you watch the video for a small addition to that statement. The exchange on this situation starts at the 40 second mark.

He should be their PR person as he's handled it pretty well and made more sense compared to others on the team. It's good that she asked the question, as MS haven't exactly been forthcoming with information.

Re: Offiical XBox (3) Launch Thread

Yeah, but no explanation of how. I mean if you're not connecting to their servers how does it authenticate for you?

There's one concern that I hadn't seen brought up until recently. We all know MS has banned a lot of people, even admitting that many were done erroneously due to glitches in their system. With the DRM and the console being always online, what effect would this have on the library? Well...

This isn't a real Microsoft account, is it?

This is directly contradictory to how Major Nelson said things would work. But then again, Microsoft is so mixed up in their XBone messaging that they could both believe they're spreading accurate information.

It's real. They backpeddled and say they mistook it as a question about 360 XBLA games.

Re: Offiical XBox (3) Launch Thread

Yeah, as was mentioned upthread Apparently it's one of their support accounts. And I agree, I think the whole campaign is a mix of contradiction. I don't even know what's what anymore. I think they'll need to hire a good PR firm to fix the damage from this campaign. But they likely don't care as they feel they've made the best console ever despite what people are saying.

Wow, I didn't expect Value to start working on that so soon. This may just be some Value engineers testing features that there's no official plan to implement, but hopefully it's a sign of things to come in the all-digital future we appear to be entering. If Sony find a way to do it too with their digital downloads, that would neuter the one good feature MS have going for them with the Xbox One.

Re: Offiical XBox (3) Launch Thread

I'm wondering if this is a test for a SteamBox feature rather than Steam Client feature, so they have sharing on their "Console".
