This isn’t a proclamation that steam is the best or me defending steam, that’s not something I’m paid to do or care about, but this is about how the XBone is worse, far far worse than steam (and others) in terms of being restricted and kept out of your device and people NEED to know this.
Don’t DEFEND what Xbone does, you should want more out of your device that you spend money on and something that locks you out of even games you purchased is insane. If you buy a game don’t you want the ability to chose what to do with it? Especially when you’re dishing out $65+ dollars? Its images like these that circulate and get people in the know and the company will feel the effect if they don’t change the way they are doing things.
Why is there a huge problem with the Xbone? Well lack of backwards compatibility is kind of bad especially when they’re trying to push DRM that requires your console to be online…What happens when the next gen comes out with the same DRM? Will they support the ol’ Xbone? How long? Then what happens to the money you invested in this thing? I got a SEGA Genesis from 1991, it’s weird but I still can play the games I owned then? (I still do) and I don’t need a server to give me permission, why should now be any different? Because they want to integrate social media? Protect their investment? Well how about they appeal to your investment and not give pirates the better deal because this will be cracked and you will be the one who’s fucked if you buy into it.
There’s no arguing this, the XBone is more limiting than any console to date never the less the likes of a PC or steam (yes even Origin).
