Well at least until MS (hopefully) backs off having fees for using used/your friend's games and that extremely confusing "not always on but once a day internet connectivity" feature.
Is Anyone Else Going To Boycott Xbox One?
I should also mention that I want to be able to play offline for an extended period of time on whatever whim without having to check in with big brother regularly. Basically the Xbone has some stuff going against it right now that would be a deal breaker for me if these things are implemented.
But boycott? Don't be silly.
Boycott... mm not really
I just won't buy they stupid thing.. all this years internet evolution has made me think I don't need cable anymore, now XBOX is trying to sell me into cable. FUCKING NO.
also I don't even live in the US, so most of the "fancy" features are meaningless to me.
I don't "boycott" products based on the pricing structure a company adopts. Pricing structure simply informs my purchasing decisions in so much as it affects the value of the purchase. I feel the same way about always online, DRM, and legacy support issues because these all possibly devalue the product by limiting my accessibility.
I reserve boycotts, which I delineate to mean not purchasing from a specific company until a specific policy is modified, to companies with policies that I disagree with from a moral standpoint. From what I've seen so far, the most serious moralistic consequence of this policy is the possible penalty incurred by not-for-profit organizations receiving second-hand video games as donations. However, I would like to believe this could be an easily solvable problem with special licensing solutions for these organizations.
i like the idea of being able to install the games to my HD and not need a disk to play.
but that is clearly open to abuse. (ie lending my game to all my friends so they can install it too... for free)
on balance.. my friends can buy there own dam games
If by boycott you mean continue to have no plans on buying one... sure! I'm in. Continuing mission!
Anyone else want to join me in boycotting heroin?
This... I don't think of myself as being such a staunch Xbox customer that I think not buying their new system would constitute a boycott.
I am already boycotting this product which isn't out yet and will only be available in limited quantities for a while after launch because I enjoy pointless gestures.
And pointless gestures would include your post in my thread. You're really good at this.
