Just when you thought it couldn’t get any worse.
after constant updates of just how far down the rabbit hole this goes

So which company hired a mad scientist using mind control rays to bring down X Box?
This is basically the best possible advertising for the PS4, so my working theory is that the XBoxOne team is actually Sony sleeper agents. Because if that’s true, this is going exactly to plan-in a weirdly Manchurian Candidate/Trojan Horse way.
Someone get the Queen of Diamonds card away from Don Mattrick.
not surprising, but real.
This just makes me tilt my head a little, because do people not realise that this is also the case for Steam? If you are banned from Steam, your library there is also lost. I’m not sure if it’s the same thing for other platforms like Desura, but I would assume so. There’s a lot of things I would pick on the Xbox One for, but this seems pretty standard.
but steam is an online gaming thing? this seems egregious when so many titles will have to be linked to the online system
Steam isn’t an online gaming thing, it’s an online video game store and you buy stand-alone games (like the Dragon Age series, before EA and Steam broke up, Skyrim, etc.) from it. So if you’re banned from it, you lose access to legitimately purchased single-player games.
