I used to, but it's become so common I got over it.

Not really. The PS4 seems more compelling. It's more powerful, not bogged down by features I don't care about, and cheaper.
I might buy it sometime down the line, but I very rarely buy two consoles a gen, so I doubt it.
This seems fairly cool if true. The more companies that do this, the more chance it has of becoming the norm. More flexibility of digital games ownership can only be a good thing.
One question: Why is it a bad thing when Microsoft does it and a great thing when Valve does it? (I'm not getting paid to write this :P) I guess that's what good reputation buys you and MS are going to have to work really hard to win people back over. As Ryan has said multiple times on E3 podcasts, Valve had to do the hard work when it launched Steam in the first place.
Because giving someone something is not the same as taking it away, even if the results are the same.
Microsoft is letting you lend games, but console games have ALWAYS been lendable. PC games began using serial codes years before Steam, so they were not lendable before Steam even existed.
I'm so tired of these "I'm going to be edgy and say XBONE is the system to get!"
Does every person who decided the exclusives and features of it are worth it needs to announce it to the world?
To clarify, I don't want to be a dick to the guy who made this blog. I understand that with all the Microsoft hype you might want to talk about your reasons you think it's a good system. But you shouldn't have to sell Microsoft's system for them.
@the_laughing_man: True, but I don't see this UI demo in the DF article for things that were running with a visible console, and we've heard reports that the UI isn't running that great. It'd be a pretty quick turnaround to have it working already.
I would not take this to mean Microsoft has solved it's issues with speed on their console.
Not until Giantbomb allows tracking of it again and being able to see which achievements most people get etc... Basically, I just want to be able to see the stats that developers get and be able to see how mine compare to my friends, people in my country and the world. Otherwise, it is just a random number that is fairly meaningless to me.
Yeah! Someone, anyone, BRING BACK ACHIEVEMENT TRACKING! I loved that feature!
Although I do LIKE achievements (Most of mine are Steam these days) the idea of accumulating a lot of them seems very strange to me. People bragging about their achievement points... It's an odd thing to brag about.
