They arent blocked per se. They are hidden behind a pay wall. If the Disc ID was syched with another account beforehand, the disc wont be able to install (which is mandatory) unless you pay an extra fee. So, broken down this means: you go and buy a used game, and then, you have to pay again to install it. In the end, youll pay the same amount (knowing gamestop, maybe even more) for a used disc than for a fresh, new one (which youll never use again) That systems seems to be all kinds of fun :P

I honestly don't have a problem with that. i have a problem with the fee being the same amount as a full game. If the fee were say $15 I would pay it withput blinking

WAT!

Effectively making used games completely pointless since the "fee" is around the same as a new game

I don't think the name of the console really matters if there are games and features that people want. If the name determines what consoles will fail, the Wii would have never been successful.

That made no sense. Had a console been named the Wii before?... No
Is there an Xbox one more than 10 years ago? Yes.
And for the Wii U. Was there a console the the name Wii before? Yes

I have decided to make my secondary console the PS4 and not the Xbox 720,.... I mean One, because that makes so much sense.

@HawkeyeWii - But, isn't that the same case with PlayStation? All four so far are called "PlayStation" followed by number. I can kinda see where you're coming from with Xbox One, but your Wii/Wii U point seems twisted. :/

I foresee what you'll do there.

There was never a console called the Xbox One. People like to assign the number 1 to the original of anything but that's not what they are called. Guess what, there's no such thing as Die Hard 1, there's no such thing as Halo 1 or Tomb Raider 1.

^That doesn't replace the fact that people already associate "Xbox one" with the original Xbox, and absolutely will make conversations about the console very confusing for quite some time. Years, perhaps.

Everyone here gets so butt hurt about Nintendo doom and gloom post but many of you are preaching Xbox doom and gloom after a couple hours? Seems much more reasonable to talk about the doom of Wii U at this point than the doom of Xbox One. One small showing of it and saying it going to fail. That's ignorance at its best.

The way I see it, it's payback for all the crap talk the Wii U has been getting as of late. Childish for certain, but that's just how the Internet works.

Not to mention, this is after all a Nintendo based website, so of course we're going to be more critical about it.

And yet many were discussing the doom of the Wii U even before its release. We are simply returning the favor to Sony and Microsoft fans ;)

From my general observation of general game forums, there's a fairly consistant pattern. Wii-U tends not to be taken seriously, and often a punchline. X1 is currently taking a pounding on forums and youtube. PS4 is generally the preferred next gen console, with all it's warts. PCers range from PC or bust, to PC and pick a console.

When you go outside the bubble of each respective fanbase, you get a better picture of the overall vibe. Which isn't to say it's all set in stone. The finish line could look different all kinds of ways.

So Major nelson is doing a Yahoo Chat and its funny how many non answers and robotic responses one can give. Though he gave some decent new info on hopefully stuff for smaller developers and the controller .

Also anyone nptice how microsoft showed mutiple ways to do the same poop even though it may be simpler one way. You can control the dashboard with controller, voice, motion, and smartgass. But the whole m hope looked stupid if I can just press a button on my controller or say go home.

Miyamoto on his desire to focus more on the (hard)core Nintendo fan.

[The casual] attitude is, ‘okay, I am the customer. You are supposed to entertain me.’ [...] and to me it’s kind of a pathetic thing.
