Who cares about console sales? The same type of people that care about which band of colored helmets can run their handegg acrossed a field the most.

Yes, thanks to all the babies that cried about the DRM.

This is the thing I want patched the most. The system was designed with this functionality, so a simple patch would fix the problem. I'll take a once daily online check-in as a trade off for the feature. As a back-up option (for when the Internet is down or access isn't available) you should then still be able to use the disc if desired.

I own a XBOne, PS3, XBOX360, and Wii. I'm in it for the gameplay, not the logo on the box. Can you say the same?

I thought this would work, but then you gotta figure that you could just hand the game to someone and they could play it offline.

See its too bad MS didn't offer that option. Of course some form of DRM is needed when no disc is required...but there was no reason not to allow leaving the disc in if there's no internet to play the game. Complain about the "whiners" all you want but the whole fiasco was MS' s fault and instead of fixing it they took their ball and went home.

Why buy digital when it costs more than buying a hard copy?

They said digital would be cheaper...they lied.

Hence the back-up option mentioned with the need to put the disc in when the Internet is out.

No, he understood that. The problem is that you, the original owner of the disc, would be able to play the game without the disk and just give it to someone else to play offline, essentially having two copies of one game.

For online games it would be useless but for single player games it's an issue.
