XBox One – The Nasty Update

XBOXOne1

What You Can’t Do:

Play games unless you connect to the internet once every 24 hours

  • if you are unable to connect, your games will not function at all
  • Yes, that includes single player games

Can’t disconnect the Kinect Sensor
You can’t Lend games
You can’t Rent Games

You can’t Trade games freely

  • Only pre-approved retailers can accept trade-ins
  • No independent game shops
  • Less value for your trade-ins since there is less shops which leads to less competition

You can’t Sell your games freely

  • In order to sell a game to someomne you must have been friends with them for over 30 days
  • The game is then locked to that user forever
  • They will not be able to see it afterwards

Seems like Microsoft really wants to lock you in, and this is how they are doing it, now it seems that the games you buy aren’t your to do with as you please. Its like buying a car but you can’t do anything with it except sell it back to the dealer. I will keep my XBox 360 for a little while until they change their stupid policies.
