Details on Xbox One Connectivity, Licensing and Privacy Features

Today we shared more information about our vision for Xbox One. In this vision we also have some of the details around digital licensing, connectivity, and privacy.  After reading the posts, you’ll get a better idea of how we’ve designed Xbox One to amplify a new generation of Xbox Live.

    I have been a proud Xbox owner since 2001, the Xbox has guided me through life and never failed to entertain me. From Halo CE to Halo 4, from Fable to Fable 3, from Gears to Gears 3, I really enjoyed being part of the Xbox family. This E3 you showed us what potential the Xbox One has, I don’t know what people are thinking when they say Sony’s conference was better but I guess that’s just a matter of opinion.
    .
    However, these policies are tearing this family into pieces. Don’t get me wrong, I’m not against these policies for they do not affect me in a negative way, the contrary actually, but the fact that you are alienating a group of passionate offline gamers is questionable at best, and very wrong at worst. These policies will affect those who do not have an internet access at all, and those whose internet connection is not fast enough to enjoy those many benefits.
    .
    Fellow gamers, the Xbox One does give us the possibility to lend games digitally, and apparantely only for 10 “family members” but I do not think Microsoft will be able enforce this, it will probably be like the Xbox Live Gold Membership. Those who do not have a stable and fast internet connection can still borrow the actual disc to install the game.
    .
    So this is not the problem. But forcing everybody to connect to the internet 24h is too much to ask for, Microsoft. People, if one can use smartphones to enable internet access for the One, then only a few will have problems when something is wrong with the internet. Still, what of those who live in rural areas? If they don’t have a normal access to the internet I doubt they have smartphones with cellular internet access.
    .
    The reason why Microsoft is doing this is because of the ability to play games without the actual disc. This is why you can’t lend games, rent games, resell games at whatever retailer you want. This is why Microsoft needs a connection every 24h, to make sure you can’t play a sold game longer than 24h. Why are you doing this, Microsoft?
    .
    I truly believe, unlike many many others, you mean well, but this is unacceptable, a deal-breaker for so many, even if it wouldn’t affect them. I believe in your vision, but there are other ways to make it come true. Removing mandatory installation would fix it all, only give us the choice to install the game. Many, many gamers would appreciate it, many would actually consider getting the Xbox One. This is nothing big I am asking for, it is actually something many gamers expect from a gaming console.
    .
    No matter the outcome, I will still buy the One. But it saddens me to see so many disappointed gamers leaving the family. Please, share your concerns on the policies in a polite way. Share it with anybody who could help, Microsoftsmen in Twitter, Facebook and so on. People from other consoles, please help us, too. We need the support! Together as gamers we could make it happen, maybe Microsoft will change the policies in our favor after this.

      Sorry to say this but i like you have been on the xbox since 01 but cant see how this drm stuff is a good thing. its like they are trying to corner the market like in pcs… but unlike pcs we have a choice.

      as for the borrowing of the disk, that wont work due to the mandatiory install and will need to be online to do it. All i see is microsoft trying to get money grabbing at anything they can, saying that its down to the publishers is rubbish as that system shouldnt be in place, the console shouldnt even support it.

      almost 100 quid cheeper, no drm no used game BS, clear policies and an understanding on consumer loylaty… yeah microsoft needs to take up and re think this plan of thiers fast or its going to be a very hard future for the console.

      on the same sort of note… 7 years from now, your games that you have built up are taking up too much server space, well guess what as its a glofied rental, that games gone… forever and theres nothing you can do about it. As ya cant play the xbox live launch titles anymore like Mech Assult online anymore stop and think long term here. 60 quid for a rental on x1 or 60 quid for ownership on other consoles…? what would you do for the same game?

      As it stands right now, it would take blind faith to not relise that sony has microsoft ofver a barrel right now. ps take all your sony fanboy comments and shove it as i aint owned one since the launch playstation.

        I think I failed to explain it correctly, but this game sharing is a digital way of borrowing games. One can download a shared game, but if the internet is not fast/good enough there is still the possibility to install the game through the disc.

        And I don’t think we will be cut loose from our games, but that is only speculation.

        You can resell games (ok, only at licensed retailers), borrow games (digitally) and have access to all your games on any Xbox. The only downside is the 24h check, which makes it impossibile for people without any internet connection to play.

        The One has great features, many just don’t like this sort of change, even if it wouldn’t affect them, and I can fully understand that. But honestly, if you have a good internet connection the One is the best to go IMO.

        If you have a good connection, why not get a PS4?

        The PS4 has a huge cloud system as well. Games like the Division are using cloud on both consoles.

        Why is Xbox One requiring you to be online? Not the cloud. To restrict you and developers.

        PS4
        It gives you the choice to play online
        The choice for devs to use DRM
        The choice to buy digitally
        The choice to buy the camera
        The choice to borrow your games or sell them
        The choice for devs to self publish
        The choice to keep your games forever

        All those extra choices, and it is 100 dollars CHEAPER.

      Hey FoxHound, what’s up? Anyway, the problem is that we would like the right to control our licence. When the licence is coupled with a disk, it’s easy. When we enter an EULA we feel less compelled to agree with it if we can’t pass it on to someone else and make back a percentage of the money used in making that mistake or overhead (in the case of just getting tired of a game, as apposed to not liking it to begin with).

        Hi Nun Ja, I’m good, how are you? I see your predicament, however you were never allowed to reverse engineer software, since the understanding was that the code on the disk, doesn’t belong to you. Now sure… the disk is yours, but the code itself is still governed by copyright laws (not that different to books really).

        Yes. Once I purchase a book. I can trade it. Lend it. Sell it. and I don’t need to contact the author for permission whenever I want to read it. Not only that, but I don’t have to have some strange camera watch over me WHILE I read it. I can also purchase the book used or buy it from a friend. I can also throw the book in a fire, and my connection to and experience with the book would end there. My connection to the book would be between me and the physical entity that is “the book”.

        I think what you’re trying to compare to is E-books.

    I for one welcome the Xbox one. The ownership entitlement is changing, and while it will not be a quiet transition, it will be a beneficial one. This happened once before, when Steam first started, and look how well it’s done for them. I look forward to Microsoft’s controls on used games at least damaging Gamecrook’s monopoly on used game sales and forcing them to rethink their pricing. I would love to see 20$ steam downloads for top games as the norm, wouldn’t you?

    I support the Xbox one. The changes will be beneficial in the long run with long term ramifications in the pricing schemes of used games. Ill put up with the kinect camera just to see GameStop flounder and be forced to change its pricing.

      My main issues are:
      1. If internet goes down or bring the Xbox One to a place without internet for a little time, it would appear that I will not be able to play single player. This is also true for the many serving in the military overseas.

      2. When the Xbox One generation is done, will the games not work?

      3. Xbox 360 towards the end of it’s cycle started to nickel and dime people. Ads litter the Gold XBL, sales were a few games recycled over and over, big sales were old games that mostly had horrible ratings, etc. Steam was not doing this, so will MS take our ownership of the game and still charge a pretty penny for absolutely everything?

      4. I don’t buy many used games unless I can’t find them new, but I do borrow games from family and friends. Each game can be borrowed once and I simply don’t like that concept.

      5. The Kinect is being shoved down our throat and I won’t spend $100 more for a system when I have to buy what should be an add-on that I do not want.

      After seeing some of the comments by the head of Xbox gaming, he has no place within the company. As long as he is running the show it will get worse and worse for the consumers AND the company. His solution to all of this stuff is to buy the 360… in reality people will buy the PS4.

      I thought this too, but the UK minimum wage is much higher than the US minimum wage, meaning we have more of our currency than they do in theirs. So when this is taken into account, it is actually fair pricing.

      Yep and they made it region locked, so it is impossible to get around that price point.

    Simple really Microsoft get rid of online check ins everyday and make them when the owner wants to connect to the internet and scrap your games policies where people cant lend their games as much as they want or trade them when they want and you also get the prices all the same for diifferent countries will win the console war even with a compulsary kinect!

        I think we’ve got more chance of MS making their controller compatible with the PS4 than them getting rid of Kinect. It’s never going to happen.

      I do wonder if there’s been a drop in Xbox Live activity since E3. I’ve played my 360 for a couple of hours yesterday but that’s all, just doesn’t feel right. Oh well, my copy of The Last of Us should be here in a couple of days.

        Just got off the phone and dropped my Xbox Live. Not another cent for MS from me.

        On a side note, somebody keeps deleting my posts here, even though they are very civil with no swearing. Nice to see freedom of speech is irrelevant to MS.

      I’m ok with the price. It’s the DRM I don’t like.

    No matter how you try and spin it… Its bad… A connected console and no used games market.

    The used gaming market adds value to the games i purchase. Removing that reduces the value of the game by 75%. In a previous post you mentioned other digital markets thriving. That is because those markets understand that in order to survive they need to make a trade off. Unit profitability vs. sales volume.

    Forcing users to play connected alienates a large percentage of the market. While large metropolitan areas have connectivity, many rural areas don’t.

    All of this coupled with the fact that i have to continue to pay Xbox live fees in order to play online…

    If this stands you will have lost a once loyal customer and i will buy my first playstation…

    I still can’t get my head around Don Mattrick essentially sticking 2 fingers up at us all and telling us to stick with the 360 if we don’t have an internet connection. I have an internet connection Don, I just don’t want to connect it to your DRM infested spy box.

    Playstation 4: It doesn’t sell sugar coated sh*t.
