What? I don't get the logic (or lack thereof) on this board. I wasn't bashing MS anywhere. I own an Xbox One, a 360 and a Wii. Just because I am not a rabid Xbox fanboy, that does not make me a Sony shill by default. /facepalm

Excuse me? So having a recently created account makes me a troll? Sound logic brother.


On this board, you kind of have to be cynical about stuff like that...people make alts and troll here. Not much you can do about the perception it creates unfortunately.

I get that, really I do. But I fail to see how I am being labelled a troll for hypothetical discussion of a system I own and enjoy.

Opposite, they can make a profit since you have to buy old games at full retail as it your only option owning the machines. The only way stores can counter is to sell MS gift cards at discounts, ie the one year subscription was only $40 instead of $60 last week.


This.

It's definitely a possibility if Microsoft are planning to release an "all-digital" console, they'd have to drop the prices for digital games at least $20 a game and they would succeed in competing with Ps4, because the Ps4 also sells their digital titles for top dollar.

It would be a positive for gamers like us who bought a console with a blu-ray drive because we could go digital with new titles too because they'll be significantly cheaper.

The Xbox One board should be renamed to the Official "Troll Here" board.

The main reason that won't happen is because Wal Mart and other such places would refuse to carry physical games if they were being undercut by digital.

Ironically, they don't care about being undercut a lot worse by Steam etc., probably because nobody with sense has bought physical PC games in years.
