This is a very important post you have made – thanks for this. It really breaks my heart to see the attitude gamers have towards DRM, always online, etc. Why? Because of the developers. These are hardworking people with families to feed that spend hours making these games for us. If we buy a used copy of a game, that’s one less sale they make. If there is no DRM, then people will pirate the game – more loss in sales.
As complexity and quality in games go up, so do developer costs. People seem to think Microsoft (or any other company like this) is just being evil and bad for consumers when it’s just the opposite. Microsoft is trying to cater to developers so they can make more and better games.
If you can’t respect the developers, then you shouldn’t be playing the games – and note – Developers =/ publishers – that’s a whole different beast.
I can’t wait to see the Glass VS Smart Watch wars start.
The winner: Consumers…well maybe…I really hope it doesn’t share the same fate that something like cross platform messaging apps suffer: Too many developers trying, nothing completely mainstream enough to make it a unified experience.
