EDGE on Next Xbox: Must be online, No second-hand games, come with Kinect

It honestly will probably just work like the current Xbox works with online function. Major over-reaction going on up in here.

It's a Damien topic.

If this article had good rumors about the "nextbox" he wouldn't have bothered posting it. Don't believe me? Just spend a little time on the ps3 board and pay attention to his posts.

Fanboys are terrible people and should be ashamed.

What if they decide to sell the new console at a loss and plan to recover the cost with live subscriptions?

ALL consoles are sold at a loss, at least for the first few years after launch. Fact. No need to debate this.

If M$ sold their 'Next Box' for $200, the company would never make a profit from the video gaming branch. Even now the gaming side of things for M$ is meagre compared to their other interests; namely keeping a stranglehold on the PC OS market.

The console will be $500+. Bank on it. If it's online active only and rejects second hand games, M$'s share price will halve faster than Facebook's did. And if Windows 8 weren't to catch on... woooo wee!


I realize that all consoles are sold at a loss, but there have been a lot of rumors in the past about turning the Xbox into more of a cable box. There are ways to make more money and sell it at even a lower price. Explain cell phones. The videogame industry is slowly turning games from products into services via Live memberships, PS+, online passes and season passes.

Its obviously all speculation at this point, but its possible. Would it bomb if they did this? Always online, no second-hand games? I would hope so, but I was against online passes as well and those seem to have stuck around.

If fanboys eat terrible people why should they be ashamed?
They're basically eating each other.

The "Must be online" portion won't happen. Not everywhere has reliable internet so they would be screwing themselves out of the playerbase that doesn't have it.

This, especially how awful the U.S's network infrastructure is compared to other regions in the world.

Still, that other paragraph concerning the difficulty in programming for the xbox when compared to the PS4 is surprising as well. I'll get both eventually, but it looks like the PS4 will be the first one I'm going with.

If this happens then i wont be buying Microsofts next console.
Online DRM is bad enough as i dont always have my 360 connected to the net, but to limit me buying only new games is a no buy from me.
What if the game i want is out of print and cant be found new anymore? The only way to buy it would be pre-owned.

Lets hope Sony doesnt pull the same BS. If they do then they'll be handing Nintendo another console win.


lol, as bad as this is. I'd take it over the garbage Nintendo provide.
