      Right after the show Geoff Keighley interviewed Don Mattrick on GameTrailers TV (Spike TV) and asked about always on and he said “No”. You can play games without being connected to the Internet. It is the online features that you need to be connected for. This is just like the Playstation 4.

      Nothing about used games though, but I’d bet it plays them just fine.

      You can’t find decent graphics cards now with less than GDDR5.

      GDDR =/= DDR

        he is right. You have to pay an activation fee basically to play a used game.

        You can’t lend game to a friend.

        you can’t borrow a game

        etc etc.

      since they basically have been super vague and pulled on a Nintendo regarding specs. It seems vgleaks did in fact have the official specs.
      gpu = 800mhz 12cu

    What about the future? In 20-30-40 years when people want to play XBOX One games, how is that going to work? I hope you planned for a day when the activation servers is switched off..

    • John

      Because when people play video games they think “hey I hope I can play this in 20/40 years”

      It’s not possible to make it last that long with modern tech. It’s too delicate, so it’s unreasonable to ask that.

    ok , what about the services for people who don’t live in the US? most of the content of the 360 is available only for the US, but you guys have customers all over the world. please don’t do this again.

      Maybe I’m wrong. But I think 320 GB is the bigger one.

    Saying your customer centric is just a joke when you have no backwards compatibility. I have invested thousands of dollars into 300+ games and so many XBLA titles and saying they have no real long term value is just so painful. Families have a limited budget and you apparently don’t care.

        You do know that I spent a lot of monies on digital products that are effectively EOL. At least on the PC, a product I bought in 1985 can still be played. Forgive me for being upset that a Billion $$$ company couldn’t take the time to actually embrace their current customers. And lets not forget how they screwed all the developers who will no longer be able to sell their products. Yes, the xbox will be around for a while to come, but who in their right mind is going to buy another digital product knowing it can’t be traded in or transferred to the next console. DRM was bad enough, and that seems to have taken a turn for the worse as well. Why shouldn’t I be disappointed.
