Dumb question maybe but why do I have to sign in to a game if I'm the only user?

Why do I have to sign in to certain games like Dead Rising 3 if I'm the only user/gamertag on my console? Do many people play anonymously/without a gamertag?

because your gave saves are tied to your gamertag

Because MS is data mining you.

At least you get that far. The first thing you must do on the PS4 is sign in. I know you aren't asking about the PS4 bit you cant see the interface before you sign in. Cant do anything . I guess my point is that it could be worse.

I know but I'm already signed in on the console. But when I go to play Dead Rising 3, I have to sign in again? What, did they think I would play as someone else(even though I'm the only gamertag for that console)?

DR3 has never made me sign in again while already being signed in, but I have had that happen when I started playing Titanfall.

Really? You felt the need to troll the ps4?

Man, I am getting tired of fanboys.

On topic :

As someone else said, because your saves are tied to your GT as are your achievements.
