Xbox 720 to be 6x more powerful.. and refuse used games altogether.

Post by igoMOTTZILLA on Thu Jan 26, 2012 9:39 am

It was rumored late last year the Microsoft new console was going to use a brand new GPU from AMD. It has been announced these systems will come with a GPU built from that of the 6670. Also it has been rumored that the console will refuse used games altogether instead of using the current online passes.

Yes, it will be like Steam im assuming how the game cannot be played unless you are on that account.

Also that Microsoft will be using Blu-Ray in the next system. I wonder what SONY was given for that, possibly cross game chat and a few bills?

I heard they want it, but hadn't heard for sure they would get it.

Well if SONY goes with that holographic disc that has a capacity of 6tb I would sell blu-ray out also.

XBOX Pirating

Post by igoDrMacro on Thu Jan 26, 2012 5:13 pm

The internet has been blowing up all day about the rumors of the next XBOX not supporting used games. Arguments have been made on both sides of the issue, no one can seem to agree on what is right. One thing i think we can agree on... If the next XBOX does indeed block used games whether that is through single activation, or otherwise. They will end up with the most pirated games/hacked console on the market.

The answer to Piracy is simple; It must be more convenient for me to get legitimately, then it is illegally. The reason people use something like Steam rather than Pirate, is because it is super convenient, and they have ridiculously low priced games.

Unfortunately games are being released with security features that make it so much of a pain, people would rather pirate the game and take a risk of being caught. The other thing that Corporate America and the game companies do not understand is; they did not lose say.. $3mil in sales because of piracy. maybe a small portion of those people would have bought the game... maybe. but MOST of them would not have paid for the game no matter what. ex: MW3 sold something ridiculous like $775Million in 5 days. and they claim they lost $15million to piracy.... Hello McFly.

I have similar thoughts as for the new Sony console. I REALLY hope they don't call it XBox 720. And from what I understand the PlayStation 3's hardware doesn't support cross-game chat. I don't think it's a royalty thing.

As for the no used games part - it really doesn't apply to me because I almost never buy used games. I still see and agree with points from both sides of the argument. But, like it's been said, the PC platform has had this model for a long time. Probably only a matter of time before it comes to the consoles too. Or, how about when the time comes that all games are delivered digitally ONLY?

I'll be done with games the day that A. I can only buy games digitally or B. I can't play a used game on my console.

For me, I see the market going all digital, and I would not have a problem with it. As long as this would keep system prices down, because of the drive not being there. If you look at the PS3 at launch, it was the cheapest blu-ray player out at the time, if that hadn't had blu-ray and been digital games only it would have been a lot cheaper.
