It would be great if someone could convert it to a proper .pdf and host it. If anyone could help, I'd gladly paste it in the OP.
And when that happens I will create a second thread, then drink heavily and caress my old-school consoles.
Slippery slope man if we don't stand up for these features now what is going to stop these companies from taking it further?
I couldn't care less about the xbone's DRM right now, actually if I were to buy the console it wouldn't effect me one bit.
It's the anti-consumer principle of it, we vote with our wallets and what doesn't seem to be a deal breaker in the present might (will?) naturally evolve into something even more restrictive several years from now.
And.... this thread is about spreading the word to encourage people not to buy it.
i'm a grown man and i don't have a salary that allows for a steady supply of $60 games. who cares? this is the future of consoles, if you're not with it you should find a new hobby.The point is to get the word out to those who aren't following this, such as families. I find that most kids don't have an allowance that allows for a steady supply of $60 games with XBL Gold. They rely on trading with their friends, and selling their used games.
May I sign your Declaration?I'm 100% on board for any boycott. We'll cross this bridge with Sony as well if they go down this road.
Microsoft has now come out in the open and stood behind what we all feared. There's no confusion left but in the tiniest nuances of this story: they are gunning for us as consumers, and it's either we stop it now or this industry radically changes into something not worth saving (if it even survives at all anyway).
If this not worth a boycott, absolutely no bit of game news would ever warrant such. If this is not worth a boycott, then we might as well all just go home and allow any business to take advantage of us simply because we don't want to put in the effort to push back. If this is not worth a boycott, then we never really loved games in the first place and this hobby of ours needs to go down in flames anyway.
I say, if this is not worth a boycott, then nothing in this industry ever would be.
Until they fix their nefarious business practices? YES I WILL! GLADLY!
It won't because this is a closed marketplace with no competition. Don't delude yourself into thinking it's anything different.I'm fine with it if it results in a Steam like marketplace.
We boycott BOTH the Xbox One and PlayStation 4 and build gaming PCs.
This is my biggest concern with the Xbox One. I mean I could live with no used games and the 24 hour DRM now that I have decent broadband (was stuck with dial up before I moved and there was no option for broadband in the area), but they gave us no hope that our games will work in 7 or 8 years once their DRM/activation servers are down. That includes single player games under MS's DRM.Actually it might - can you play SoM on your SNES today? Will you be able to play Halo 5 in 20 years?
None of this bothers me. If anything I would spread the word that it's not nearly as bad as it was made out to be.

Needs to include:
In 2007, Microsoft became the first member of the NSA's PRISM program for warrantless spying on US citizens and with the XBox One Kinect 2.0 MUST always be on. You connect the dots.
