Microsoft skirts 'always online' by requiring 'online one a day'

Source


Quote:
Microsoft came under intense scrutiny regarding its DRM and always on policies for Xbox One after the initial hardware reveal, and just days ahead of its E3 press conference, the company has released new details about how it’ll all work.

There are still questions (ones that I’ll, sadly, be unable to ask since Microsoft cancelled my one-on-one interviews with its executives at the last second!), but here’s what we now know. These quotes come directly from Microsoft:

Always On

While a persistent connection is not required, Xbox One is designed to verify if system, application or game updates are needed and to see if you have acquired new games, or resold, traded in, or given your game to a friend. Games that are designed to take advantage of the cloud may require a connection.

With Xbox One you can game offline for up to 24 hours on your primary console, or one hour if you are logged on to a separate console accessing your library. Offline gaming is not possible after these prescribed times until you re-establish a connection, but you can still watch live TV and enjoy Blu-ray and DVD movies.

Used Games

Buy the way you want—disc or digital—on the same day: You’ll be able to buy disc-based games at traditional retailers or online through Xbox Live, on day of release. Discs will continue to be a great way to install your games quickly.

Access your entire games library from any Xbox One—no discs required:After signing in and installing, you can play any of your games from any Xbox One because a digital copy of your game is stored on your console and in the cloud. So, for example, while you are logged in at your friend’s house, you can play your games.

Share access to your games with everyone inside your home: Your friends and family, your guests and acquaintances get unlimited access to all of your games. Anyone can play your games on your console--regardless of whether you are logged in or their relationship to you.

Trade-in and resell your disc-based games: Today, some gamers choose to sell their old disc-based games back for cash and credit. We designed Xbox One so game publishers can enable you to trade in your games at participating retailers. Microsoft does not charge a platform fee to retailers, publishers, or consumers for enabling transfer of these games.

Give your family access to your entire games library anytime, anywhere:Xbox One will enable new forms of access for families. Up to ten members of your family can log in and play from your shared games library on any Xbox One. Just like today, a family member can play your copy of Forza Motorsport at a friend’s house. Only now, they will see not just Forza, but all of your shared games. You can always play your games, and any one of your family members can be playing from your shared library at a given time.

In our role as a game publisher, Microsoft Studios will enable you to give your games to friends or trade in your Xbox One games at participating retailers. Third party publishers may opt in or out of supporting game resale and may set up business terms or transfer fees with retailers. Microsoft does not receive any compensation as part of this. In addition, third party publishers can enable you to give games to friends. Loaning or renting games won’t be available at launch, but we are exploring the possibilities with our partners.

Give your games to friends: Xbox One is designed so game publishers can enable you to give your disc-based games to your friends. There are no fees charged as part of these transfers. There are two requirements: you can only give them to people who have been on your friends list for at least 30 days and each game can only be given once.

Kinect Privacy

You are in control of what Kinect can see and hear: By design, you will determine how responsive and personalized your Xbox One is to you and your family during setup. The system will navigate you through key privacy options, like automatic or manual sign in, privacy settings, and clear notifications about how data is used. When Xbox One is on and you’re simply having a conversation in your living room, your conversation is not being recorded or uploaded.

You are in control of when Kinect sensing is On, Off or Paused: If you don’t want the Kinect sensor on while playing games or enjoying your entertainment, you can pause Kinect. To turn off your Xbox One, just say “Xbox Off.” When the system is off, it’s only listening for the single voice command -- “Xbox On,” and you can even turn that feature off too. Some apps and games may require Kinect functionality to operate, so you’ll need to turn it back on for these experiences.

You are in control of your personal data: You can play games or enjoy applications that use data, such as videos, photos, facial expressions, heart rate and more, but this data will not leave your Xbox One without your explicit permission. Here are a few examples of potential future scenarios:

A fitness game could measure heart rate data to provide you with improved feedback on your workout, allow you to track your progress, or even measure calories burned.

A card game could allow you to bluff your virtual opponent using your facial expressions.

So...


Who else is going PS4 this gen?

I love how they try and spin the DRM and who or what "owns" the game as a positive experience that they're giving the player, as opposed to new restrictions on what you can do with the game disc, as compared to all previous generations.

The family thing could be great.

Also, I wonder if PS4 will be doing the same.

Sony has already officially said that they wont enforce any DRM on their games. It'll be up to game developers if they want one on their game.

Basically Sony is currently doing nearly all the bad things Microsoft is doing and flipping it around.

You can game offline for 24 hours, but then we're bricking your console until you reconnect. / Microsoft Decision making

Yes and no. Microsoft are effectively hard coding these practices and drumming it in that;

Yes you will need kinect, deal with it.
Yes you will need intarweb every 23 hours, deal with it.
and etcetera.

Sony on the other hand are allowing the option. Whilst yes, it's not a complete departure, it's a massive gulf in the marketing campaign as who are consumers going to blame?

Sony for devs using those options?
Microsoft for forcing it down everyones throat as a standard intrinsic process?

Lowest common denominator would show that people would blame Microsoft because they went on the front foot, it was unpopular and now they are having to further explain everything, continue to give it air so the fire is still going strong. All they needed to do was shut up about it and people would have gradually weened off talking about it, but then, as that writer alluded to, they throw up walls to the media now? Bit too late for that as it either shows a massive back pedal or a STFU mindset.
