It would have ensured that everyone using the console had a broadband internet connection, giving devs a more unified platform and allowing cloud processing support on every game.


and many hundreds of thousand people wouldn't be able to buy one as they have no home internet.

Currently in the uk 17% of people don't have home internet, even in our small country 17% of 61 million is a LOT of potential lost customers.


He asked for one good thing, not a list of pros and cons.

24 hrs check-in would have only affected players with modded or pirated software.

Advantage to you if you are not thieving software, better development teams and lower prices.


No... it would have affected anyone who lost their internet connection for more than 24 hrs not just pirates or modders.


He is looking for the positive side of 24hrs DRM i believe, assuming players actually have a reliiable connection.

Some people say that the 24 hour check in would have been a good thing for gamers if Microsoft had "marketed" or "spun" it better.

I've racked my considerable brain power and I can't think of one advantage for the gamer around being required to check in once a day online. I personally don't like the idea of being treated like a criminal, having MS act as a parole officer by requiring me to "call" them once a day and allow them to scan my console for used games, as well as give them the right to brick my legally bought console and software at their whim.

So I reiterate:name one advantage to the consumer by allowing MS to get away with a mandatory 24 hour check in.


well you didn't think too well.

the 24 hour check allowed you to sell your digital games.

Advantage is that there would be no disc switching.

Possible bridging of games since all games are digital.

The 24 hour check was a way of allowing these items to happen. The check itself has no actual positive benefits but its the counter to allow other things that are positive benefis.

A online DRM system does nothing to stop pirates/modded systems, in order for a game to be pirated they would first remove or bypass the DRM system. So it wouldn't have effected pirates at all.

You could install the game and never have to touch the disc again. Although I'm going all digital this gen, so it doesn't really matter.
