They shouldn't be, they knew the situation when getting a console. You pay for convenience and that people have streamlined everything for you so you just have to install and start a game.

No.

>>285872845
I assume they would have previously argue there was little other choice in the matter.

But if the xbone exclusives are migrating to PC, there is no reason to get the console.

Xbox One/360 owners are only just realizing that Xbox live is bollocks? Jesus, you would think though that online capabilities are a feature you pay for in the game, it is like a second tax on the people that want to play multiplayer. If you want people to play your game online, either get rid of the subscription system all together or keep the service and make the games cheaper.

at least MS is learning, they've made enough mistakes for a lifetime
>>
Microsoft is aware that they cannot compete against services like Steam. Third parties would refuse to move from things like Steam, because they'd be exposed to a smaller player base.

Basically, Microsoft is afraid of becoming the new EA Origin.

>>285873247
>But if the xbone exclusives are migrating to PC, there is no reason to get the console.
Let's be realistic. Microsoft consoles never sold because of exclusives outside of Halo. The primary Xbox audience has two types of people:
>I bought this console to play with friends who have this console.
and
>I have this console because it is de facto the best experience I can receive in today's world, especially considering I don't want to play on a computer attached to a small monitor and without a controller. I'm okay with my monthly online fees, because not only did Microsoft invent online gaming, but servers must be super expensive.
That second group isn't really well educated when it comes to these decisions. Honestly, the average gamer never did have much reason to get the console. It's not super popular, and there isn't a full lineup of really awesome exclusive titles.

I think most of the anger comes from their audience being forcefully exposed by Microsoft themselves to the idea that it doesn't actually cost a billion dollars a month for Microsoft to allow gamers to play Call of Duty with other people across the internet.
>>
>>285874403
PS+ is a great service. But this shit being mandatory makes me mad as fuck.

>>285874697
Anon they fight for their life on OS market.
With valve going with SteamOS which will lead to more attention being paid to gaming on linux(so drivers will improve and linux versions will be more common) and normalfags buying "it just werks unless it doesn't" machines, they can't allow themselves for mistakes if they want to stay here.

>>
>>285874416
>Im surprised at Microsoft tbh. Were they smart enough to realise that if they tried to make people pay for this shit on PC absolutely fucking nobody would go for it?

They would absolutely go for it if they threw up some worthwhile games and a discount and access to other services like netflick and "Free" games to make it seem worthwhile. I wonder how many pc users would be willing to pay the sub fee if they had halo, crackdown, scalebound, fable, forza etc etc behind that paywall and all those features. It's silly but I'm guessing it has a 50/50 shot of working. Previously they charged for gfwl but had no fucking worthwhile games so it flopped.
>>
>>285875509
At least sony doesnt charge for their online while filling up your entire dashboard with ads. Especially ads for axe and other completely unrelated shit.
i hate paying for online for sure but im far happier with my PS4's UI and online shit than i was with my 360 near the end.
>>
>>285874403
Ok, this is an important question: If one account registered on the PS4 has PS+, do all other accounts of the system still have access to online games as well?

Because I share a PS4 with my roommate, and it's driving me fucking nuts that when Bloodborne finally comes out, I might not be able to play online on my own account because he's the one who has PS+ which means it's useless for me to buy it as well.

Why? If you got an xbone most of the time you can't afford a good pc. So the xbone was the best choice either way. The sub fee is there but I have not seen one shred of evidence that ANY of the xbones top tier games will be going to pc. I'm a main pc owner too and never got the hate on the xbone despite not owning one. PS4 users won't be getting the games either way so who does it hurt? PC users are in their own category and consoles in another.

After seriously backfiring in their faces, I don't think MS would have the guts to try to charge a premium for online play again with PC gamers. It sucks for XB1 users but I don't think there's any better way for them to re-approach the PC platform.
>>

>>285876706

The most annoying part was they slipped it in after MS fucked up. If MS didn't fuck up we could have stopped sony from jamming that fee in. Probably not but at least it would have gotten more attention. The only thing keeping the ps4 from being the true best console. I'd also like to add that the ps2 and ps3 didn't fucking need to pay for online so it is obvious they are just looking to milk the consumers more. Unacceptable.
>>
PC owners, just admit it. Seeing all of you flock to whatever insignificant "good" news to make yourselves seem like a master race is embarrassing. And frankly, these threads are essentially a comedy show for /v/ with how stupid they are. Just act like adults and admit your $1000 wastes of time for prettier graphics was just a mistake. The sooner you realize that, the sooner console owners would stop laughing at you.

People with consoles only tend to be poorer. I own a pc and a console as well. You're dealing with kids who can only afford to buy one thing. But that's another topic. My point is it being on pc doesn't hurt the console market since that's between the xbone and the ps4 and the type of people that can only get one system and thus defend their purchase.
>>

MS is not porting their One games to Windows, least not in the way you guys think. I mean, why would they? No one would buy a One if they did that.

What this means is games that SUPPORT their version of Live on PC will be free to play online.


It's GFWL, essentially, or the MS store that you have on newer version of Windows.

I highly, highly doubt you're going to get Halo or Forza on PC.

Yes they were giving people the shaft with 8 being tablet centered and going all out with surface. It backfired pretty bad as they literally laughed in the face of desktop users and refused to return the start menu as the most notable thing. They also tried killing pc gaming with the original xbox. I honestly have no idea why they think they can still penetrate the market here. It's pretty much over.

Also I will say even if they have some degree of success with windows 10 or whatever, they will try doing some stupid shit like sub fees or always on again once they get the popularity and numbers.

Last I heard, it was just that you could stream from your One to the PC?

Anyone who has a newer version of windows knows they have a marketplace built in and that you can go and buy games, sort of like Steam.

Microsoft has been slowly getting back into PC gaming.

At GDC they announced "most" first party xbox exclusives will be cross platform with PC. Now they're saying PC players don't have to pay to play online.

So basically not only is PC taking Xbox's exclusives but they also don't have to pay online to play them.

They aren't. Dumping shitty games that didn't sell well on their xbone isn't getting back into pc gaming. It's like you faggots forgot all the damage MS did to pc gaming to where gabe literally took advantage and propped himself up with steam. If it wasn't for that we'd be taking a 50 dollar fee up the ass or paying full price on origin.

It's pretty fucking stupid how Microsoft ignored PC and let Valve and Steam pretty much serve as the hub of all PC gaming. The Xbox was a failed experiment. Sony and Nintendo have had the console market corned for a long time. PC could be Microsoft's chance to really shine. They're a software company for Chrissakes and now they have a ton of experience in vidya.

Your point?
No one should have to pay for online, and Sony's service is better.
except they keep giving away everyone's credit cards

MS isn't competing with Sony. Matter of fact, they haven't been for a while. They're looking beyond just console sales and games.

10 year bone plan makes sense now. All one universe. Tablets, phones, PC, console. Making a game and porting it to either device is super simple and easy (DX12).

Makes me wonder what people are thinking in this thread.

the business idea is to make their games more accessible to a bigger audience which means more sales for them, and at the same time by enforcing to be windows 10 only makes people upgrade/buy the operating system locking a person down to the system even more. Its really clever.

They're furious because their retarded notion that monthly fees are needed and marketing would never lie to them is being challenged/crushed. PS4 and xbone faggots are among the best goyim. They pay monthly fees until they've paid a price higher than a better gaming machine while chanting in a drone like state: "(insert brand overlord drm machine here) is cheap. MUH exclusives! ____ is cheap! MUH Exclusives!". Exclusivity to these consoles means exclusivity to a bad choice. They honestly believe that supporting their lack of choice in gaming machine for these games is a good idea. They feel that these people should have complete control over them. These people are the type that are born to be slaves. They line up for their daily rapings and go back to chanting their overlords name. They are a pitiful bunch of goyim who can't see through the jewery to know change is needed. These consoles do NOT deserve to lord over these games anymore. These consoles do not deserve any of this but the drones are too many, they protect their brand overlord no matter how much they pay and how little they get out of it. You can slap them and scream at them but you'll never break their chants. Exclusivity feeds the ego that powers their lust for their brand overlord. Its disgusting really, they can't even see how their game has been limited and would have been better on a different, probably cheaper machine over time. There is no reason to support these fucking leaches. They aren't offering you jack shit other than imprisoned games you could set free by not supporting their jailers. You people can't understand anything past what your marketers tell you to. You can't understand that these companies can fall(xbox team shut down alternatively) if you simply stop allowing this.

I didn't buy a PS4 myself and stopped at PS3 because paying for another internet fee is retarded, but didn't PS4s sell a shitton? I remember seeing some flamewar threads on /v/ claiming that.

when they start counting their monthly fees. If sony is lucky, there are enough singleplayers out there that it won't be a problem.

When they realize they'll pay the price of a much better gaming PC over the course of the systems lifetime for simply operating the PS4 online. That is when they will wake up.
