    I know I've been big on hacking the Xbone and all that. Never mind it. It was the ranting of an angry man. Here's a better solution. BUY USED. Buy the console used so Microsoft doesn't see a dime. Wait until the games become cheap and BUY USED. That way you can still play the games and Microsoft and all of these other idiot publishers don't see any income. Don't be fooled into thinking you are supporting the developers. You aren't. BUY USED!

    I've been with this industry since 1985. I don't want it to end! Microsoft needs to die. It will be a mercy killing.

    Here's a better solution.

    Take a shit. Put it in a brown paper bag. Mail it to MS HQ.

    Profit.

    How about I don't buy it at all? There's plenty of good stuff to play on other platforms.

    That's... a strategy I hadn't considered. But you're pretty much right!

    Hooray! I can still play Quantum Break and not feel bad about myself!

    Probably won't be able to find too many used until next year, but PS4 will probably by my primary this time around, so this is a good strategy with which to have it both ways!

    Also the poop bag thing.

    Good ideas, all around!

    @kerned: that's very true. But if Sony goes the same as Xbone a lot of people won't have a choice.

    For someone who has been in the industry for 1 year less than I've been alive, surely you'd be less hyperbolic & accept that without publishers receiving income from game sales an awful lot people will lose their jobs, a lot of studios will close? To say that devs don't benefit from game sales is naive to the point of stupidity.

    It's not naive it's simple fact. Devs see almost nothing from game sales. Look it up.publishers need to suffer so devs can take over.

    Doesn't it actually benefit Microsoft when you buy consoles used since they historically take a loss on console sales?

    "Buy used" as a form of protest is always so dumb. Even if you're not directly funding them you're still supporting the console and supporting their decisions with the console. If you're really so against what they're doing with the console then you shouldn't have anything to do with it all. None of this half-assed internet age boycott bullshit.

    @taku128: uum how do they benefit ?

    You're buying into the platform without them losing money on the console sale. And there's no way Microsoft isn't going to be taking a cut of used software sales. You're hurting the publisher a lot more than Microsoft.

    Only if you have no spine. Look, unless you're willing to get the console and all games, used, forever, without a Live Gold subscription, while using all fake credentials and then talking to literally nobody about any of the games you play? You are going to support Microsoft. Straight up Piracy is still effective word of mouth, indie devs have proven this time and time again. If you have a problem with Microsoft, support the competitors.

    You know, have some integrity duder!

    This is the best boycott idea ever, because you get to feel all high and mighty on the internet while well......... Not really doing much else besides giving yourself a reason to feel like you are sticking it to the man.

    @mtcantor: Considering I never ended up buying an Xbox or 360, it seems unlikely that I would be unable to resist buying the XB1. Even moreso the fact that I've never bought a console near launch. But hey, it's always possible.

    Are you trying to be satirical? Might you be parodying something?

    You do understand that you can't buy a used console unless someone else has bought it new, right?

    I can just imagine buying one used and it turns out the previous owner used it to record him jacking off with the Kinect turned on and the retailer didn't delete it.
