The People Speak - Not Buying It
Posted on Wednesday, November 13 @ 17:56:08 Eastern by Daniel Bischoff
These posts normally get a little weird, but let's be serious about our hobby for a few minutes. I realize after looking at the comments featured this week that Microsoft and Xbox One went to your houses and shot your dogs when it came to DRM in the console space. I get it, I'm sure they get it at this point too... at least I hope they do... but let's get one thing straight.
You'll never prove your point if you don't drive the message home. If you don't want a camera watching you all the time or for this business to be so dedicated to the internet that it requires a connection to continue delivering entertaining experiences, don't buy an Xbox One. You could buy a Wii U (which certainly doesn't have a camera watching you at all times and has kind of slumped in the online multiplayer department). You could buy a PS4 launching this week. Hell, don't buy any new console hardware. Gamers concerned with resolution should really just build a PC because that'll be the only way to satisfy that graphical lust.
EX+ has probably already discoverd this lesson as he spouts wisdom as well. I've often said that publishers should take advantage of greater variation in pricing when releasing their games. While this comment's actual popularity might be called into question by the sheer volume of guest votes, I believe it's worthy of this week's crown considering many other commenters featured here expressed their own vision on Xbox One's rocky debut. Congrats EX+ Tip of the hat to Sourdeez as well.
