The always-online Xbox, the bad idea the industry needs?


I wasn't always online, but f*ck used games right! Wait... why wont you sell me!?

At the very least an always-online / anti-used-game console could be looked at as a great opportunity for gamers to put their foot down and take a stand against bullshit of this nature. Gamers can stomach varying degrees of crap from the industry, whether it be things like online passes or DLC, but a system like the rumored Nextbox is something that has both immediate high costs as well as long term costs, and these are things I can’t imagine that even the average gamer is willing to tolerate.

Voting with your wallet does work. If the rumored Nextbox does become a reality and you want no part of it, then take your money elsewhere. The implementation of such an obviously consumer-inconvenient system and its subsequent rejection would be something that would most likely alter the future of the video game industry, as the big companies would then know there are limits to what they can attempt. I know a lot of gamers don’t even want to see this rumored system become a reality, however sometimes things need to get worse before they can get better.

Who am I? I'm a guy who plays video games, talks way too much about comics and movies, likes Godzilla and Robocop. Why should you read my blog? Because when I write I have fun, make up bullshit lists, and when I do get a little serious with some blogs I try to be insightful and use resources and facts to try and back up my opinion as much as I can. And if you don't follow my blog, I'll send you a picture of a sad kitten who wants some love.

Also, I tend to debate a lot and get up on a soapbox a bit from time to time. I like to debate for the sake of debating and I tend to find it fun to get other peoples perspectives on things, and sometimes I like to play devil's advocate a bit just for the sake of it. Basically, don't take me so serious sometimes even if it seems like I am being serious.
