dumb dumb dumb. I'm a hardcore XBOX fan but this is a deal breaker. I usually rent games before I buy them. I'm not going to spend 60 dollars and then find out I don't like the game. Wow this is huge guess i'm getting a PS4 now.

I own a 360 and plan on keeping it for a while. Naughty Dog has me wanting to buy another ps3. But Microsoft have lost me as their consumer in regards to their next-gen console. There was an article over at IGN that was posted yesterday and that is where they lost me.

Not everyone will have an Internet connection. Not everyone plays online, every day. And I have a tv that works fine.

I don't know what Microsoft expects, but Sony (from what we've read, watched and heard...) will have so many more customers come release day.

I completely agree with some of the statements above. It's not about rentals, but rather about the fact of not being able to play games you have bought used.

A possible scenario here that gives MS and probably the publishers a bit of money. Instead of renting a game "normally", the Xbox gives you the option to buy a 5-day trial for $5 (or however much). Your system will download the game and as soon as it's playable the trial begins. After the 5 days are up, you have the option to pay off the rest of the full game cost or end the trial and have the game license taken away.

One of the benefits (from MS's point of view anyways) to requiring Internet connectivity.

This kills me as a GameFly member. If you're not using GameFly and you play over 2 sports games a year during their seasons you're wasting money. This is a HUGE blow and not a deal breaker for me, but a definite deterrent.

If you think one system is going to do this and the other is not?? Well, you will be mistaken. Sony is just letting MS take the hit first. No way publishers will let one console get away with NOT doing this when the other does.
