Wii U will defeat the next Xbox because Microsoft won't play used games

#1Sharky8Posted 3/1/2013 9:24:41 AM
The next Xbox will always require an internet connection to function. It won't play used games. You'll get a powerful machine. You'll probably get decent games...but you'll have to pay for internet service. You won't be able to play games you purchased in the past. You won't be able to buy used games. Now, the Wii U, on the otherhand, plays every used Wii and Wii U game. It doesn't matter if you're the original owner or the 100th owner of the disc. The Wii U plays it. You don't have to pay a subscription service. You don't need to keep it connected online, if you don't want.

Reason #127 the Wii U will defeat the Microsoft and Sony competition:

"a new report that says the next-generation console will require an always-on connection just so it can function.

This notion makes Microsoft's Xbox Live service that much more important.

The reason cited for the constant connection is to prevent the use of used games,"

Assuming this is all true, I agree with you.

But we'll see how many of these rumors actually pan out when Microsoft unveils their new system.

They said that about the PS4 too, but it turned out to be false. It would be dumb of Microsoft to do so.

The thing I hate most about playing my PS3 is that ridiculous boomerang controller it shipped with.

The rumor was 100% of Microsoft, they included Sony because they filled a patent 2 years ago about blocking used games, but it was just that, a patent....

Microsoft has like 1 year with this strong rumor, live console, always on, and blocked used games, it would be a bad decision IMO, more when iit would be the only console to do it...

althought the PS4 rumor was false, i cant help but feel like the MS rumor is true.

I mean MS already knows the masses will pay for anything on their systems...
Metroid Zero Mission and Super Metroid are some of the finest 2D games ever made and are the best in the series.
Metroid Fusion is pretty cool I guess.
