We're excited to announce that we've fully migrated the Xbox Forums to their new home, here on the Microsoft Community forums!
As of today, going to forums.xbox.com will redirect you here to the Xbox area of the Community forums. We've moved all of your existing threads over so you can continue and start conversations with the new forums experience.
We sincerely appreciate the feedback you have provided over this transition and can't wait for you to check out the new Xbox Forums!
If other people didn't b**** and moan when the DRM was announce, that would've happened. I'm kinda with you though, I should've went digital with some games but I don't mind switching discs. But in the future, i'm going digital for the most part.
They do have a way for diskless gaming. Buy the download.
You will never get it with a disk based game as it required DRM and an internet connection which many people demanded to be removed. There is too much potential for people playing the consoles offline without paying for the game.
Will never happen. Originally you would have only needed to use your disc once then after that play game without disc. It meant the Xbox needing to stay online and game discs were registered to your profile.
But unfortunately loads of people moaned about this feature and Microsoft were forced to reverse it.
The only way to play without disc now is to buy digital.
IMO the Xbox one is not a good now as it would have been if the anti DRM people hadn't spat their dummies out and forced Microsoft to change it.
I like the way they have it setup now. If you want to buy a disc to later sell or lend to a buddy you can. If you don't want to get up and walk to the xbox to change a disc, you can download digital. Anyone who has enough energy to go to a store to buy
a game can certainly manage inserting it to play :)
I didn't want to be downloading games at the same time as everyone else, so I bought discs. I do wish DRM hadn't been reversed though. I get broken out of the immersion of Kinect when switching Discs. It's not a breaker, but it's made me realise how much
the DRM would have expanded on the Kinect.
