Flipflopping like this after that whole escapade comes across as disingenuous, but regardless, glad this happened. No longer 100% opposed to the idea of eventually getting an Xbox One.

I have a lot more faith in Sony though. They didn't need customers to shout directions and point where they needed to go as they were fumbling around for an eternity, pretending to hear us or trying to (badly) convince us they were going the right way. Sony knew in which direction they should be heading.

PS4 is a potential preorder, Xbox One is a potential purchase at some point.

Hope digital sharing gets worked out. I think everyone understands that there needs to be restrictions, but some ability to transfer licenses would really ease the transition. Microsoft was on the right track with that at least.

Haha!

No they weren't.

I sort of feel like I've been lied to directly in the forehead. I knew the family sharing plan wasn't going to be as great as people wanted it to be, but the way Microsoft talked about it I thought it'd be something.

Could you imagine the shitstorm if Microsoft had gone through with this plan?

How are you supposed to trust in these people when they say things?

How do you post gifs here? I don't get it.

I'm saddened by the fact that I thought Microsoft did good delivering on their "games at E3" promise. Because as long as they insist on siding with "participating retailers" and publishers over consumers, I'm not buying the console those games are exclusive to. I definitely would've been on board, but no, they decided to push me away with their shitty policies and restrictions.

@rye256: Yeah, lending, renting, gifting are on the line here. Trading and selling might be affected to some degree as well. Microsoft won't say what they're poking and prodding at there.

A solution for lending/gifting would be to give them the game and your login details. It is a pretty shitty solution. I assume the minute you log in they'll get logged out and vice versa. Also bad security practice.

Really, really hope Sony isn't going down this route too.

Let's say Microsoft has some work set out for them to redeem this thing at E3...

I'm still not 100% on how this used games system of theirs is supposed to work, but it sounds terrible and like a potential dealbreaker. If they're seriously telling me that if I want to give a game to my brother, he has to fucking buy it from them, they can fuck right off. That's just...I can't believe that's...something must've gotten lost in translation right?

Finally I'm getting some use out of those boilerplate affixes companies always paste at the bottom of their press releases. I now know what a Nordic Games is. Think this company would be more interested in doing smaller games. Interesting development. Hopefully it won't result in a bunch of bullshit that makes everyone sad.

Apparently bought up a bunch of Game stores last May.

And it totally is...well, not the same company, but it's the same guy who ran this games retailer that operated in the 90's I used to see ads for all the time.

Will this be streamed live or archived? I really hope so.

Also wondering this.

I've been told it will be recorded, but not streamed. Apparently the internet is funky in that room. Small chance of phone streaming. I wouldn't expect to see any footage until they return. But who knows, sometimes magic happens.

I vote Jeff Green.

The game being broken is as bad as it was predictable, but what I think is really terrible about this whole situation is that EA's refusing refunds.

Your game is broken, does not work, give refunds, you assholes.

Good on Amazon by the way.
