In Topic: Xbox One on the way. DRM removed, more details to come.

As stupid as it is, though, I'm going to hate losing my Gamerscore...

They're making Gamerscore meaningless next gen anyway, though.  A day-one achievement for preordering the console?  Achievements for buying a lot of games from the same publisher?  Achievements for watching TV?  Achievements for purchasing content?  Achievements were great... why fix what isn't broken?  They took a fragile ecosystem and disrupted it.  

 

 

 

I had heard there was a patent for the TV watching, but I wasn't aware it had been implemented.  This is also the first I've heard of achievements for making purchases (though I knew about the bonus "pre-order" achievement).  If this is all true, it really does kill the nice metagame they had going.

 

It does make switching to Sony's camp a little bit easier, though.

The online DRM absolutely kills it for me--and it really bums me out, having been a huge MS supporter over the past two generations.

 

If MS allows bypassing the 24-hour check-in by having physical media in the drive (or simply does away with online checks entirely) I'd be on board again, even at the higher price.  I actually preferred their show and the games they presented.  I'd love to see them backpedal, but I'm really not confident they will.  If not, I'll purchase a PS4 on day one, with the X1 coming way later--if at all.

In Topic: Sunday Ad Video Game Deals (1/20 to 1/26) $20 off 3DS & 3DS XL Systems at...

Not to necro last week's thread, but I checked bestbuy.com this morning and noticed the 3DS XL is now listed for $169.99. If you purchased one last week, Best Buy should honor the new price.

As for me, I held out but will probably purchase now that it's 10 bucks cheaper.

Unfortunately, the regular 3DS appears to be back to regular price.
