    I doubt it, by the time HL3/Ep.3 comes out "it's all rendered in the cloud" will be a legitimate claim.

    And every entertainment system will have to be called "Xbox" along the same line as every restaurant was 'Taco Bell' in Demolition Man?

    Maybe it will be so far in the future, it will be played on a holo-deck.

    I Think in the future it would be played in your own mind. Plug in and lie down.

    I'd play it... but only if it can be set to "defeat Data" in the difficulty settings

    My DVD copy (region 2) refers to Taco Bell. Maybe they kept it the same for the DVD version.

    thats what you get when you do a crap job of explaining things and all anyone hears is no lending games. And if owners have to put up with anti copying measures then surely games should be cheaper on the xbox than ps4?

    That's a great joke, do you do tours?

    OT: Maybe I'm being a grumpy barsteward, but I just prefer to have the peace of mind that when I buy a physical copy of a game, I -own- that game. Surely if the digital system relies solely on the cloud/servers, once those servers go down (they did it with the Xbox On-- original, bloody crap naming M$!, they'll inevitably do the same with the 360 down the line.) - those games, and that console, will become nothing. It'll just be a black box that sits there and flashes some cool lights, you won't be able to play the games anymore. Oh, unless you perhaps get offered to locally store allllllll the games you've acquired during the time using it, which will no doubt take you until your death to download and require a WD warehouse to store them all. I dunno, to me it just seems more of a -rented- service. You're renting the games, being able to play them until that service you're renting from is no longer accessible. You're not buying them and calling them your own if you want the digital solution M$ were proposing.

    Whereas me, I can still get out my Sega Genesis collection and play all the games until my arse falls off and require more botox than Anne Robinson. Or the atari jagua-- scratch that, less said about that one the better

    The way I saw it [and still do, actually] is that everyone objected to the BS DRM, and ONLY the BS DRM. Microsoft, refusing to stop being anti-consumer, stripped it out along with a lot of things it wasn't tied to.

    I've seen the argument made that the DRM was needed for selling digital games [which was never a thing anyway], but that could have been implemented by needing to be online to sell games.

    The licence goes into storage [so you can't just keep playing it offline] and is posted on a user marketplace.

    Family sharing is another thing people want, but I doubt it was going to work how they think it will. There's a lot of rumours it was only a demo version being shared. Plus the fact that, after killing the used game market for XBone, Publishers weren't then going to allow 9 free copies of a game to be shared out for every 1 sold.


    Also, thanks to that Ars article, I've FINALLY heard a semi-decent reason for the "no disk switching". [quickly switching to multiplayer games based on what your friends are playing]
