      Update on the single-device/browser login restriction issue some people are having.   04/04/2017

      4/7/2017 update: Now people who've been affected by this are saying that it went away on its own after about a week. So I dunno, if this would really hugely inconvenience you try to not log in on additional devices/browsers until the 4.2 update that's supposed to hopefully resolve this for good.   original announcement: For a long time now, D1P has been limited to three logins at a time; logging in on a fourth device or browser would log you out everywhere else. Unfortunately, multiple people have been reporting that they've started experiencing being limited to ONE login at a time.   The good news is, Invision Power Services (the company that makes our forum software) is aware of the issue and will be addressing it in version 4.2 of the software, which is the next big update. The bad news is, they announced about a month ago (the beginning of March 2017) that the update will be coming out in "mid 2017", so we probably have at least another couple of months to go before this is resolved.   In the meantime, I apologize to those affected for the inconvenience, and would suggest to everyone else to not log in to additional devices until this is resolved if this is something you don't want to have to have to deal with. I'm still not 100% sure on why it's not affecting everyone and why it didn't hit everyone affected at the same time, but the timing of when the reports of this started here mostly lines up with when I've seen reports of other sites having this issue starting, and I suspect that the problem is trickling in because of people happening to hit a fourth login that logs them out everywhere else, and then proceeding to be limited to one login at a time after that.

Yup, that pretty much covered everything... lol

The only new tidbit I saw confirmed today (so far) is that it is impossible to turn off the Kinect mic. It is always listening.

Holy shit, is that for real? Looks like something straight out of the 80s... except with a blu-ray slot.

Thanks obama, indeed.

My favorite part was where pitt said 'you lie'... because like half of that information in the gif was a lie. No one knows how the games are going to be tied to accounts yet. No one knows what the 'fee' will be. I have not heard anywhere else that the system needs internet access every 24 hours. etc. So yea great gif.

You are either dense, in denial or really uninformed. Everything in that gif came out of microsoft's mouth (or from journalists covering the xbone) after the show.

The only thing that has not been completely locked down is the Fee but it was hinted at being around $50.

When you install a game it gets tied to your account once you activate it online. If you give it to a friend he has to pay a fee for him/her getting another activation key.

When you sell a game back to gamestop your key gets deactivated but the game remains on your machines hard drive. You can pay a reactivation fee to have access again if you so wish.

Once every 24 hours you have to connect to the internet for the console to make sure all of your games have active keys. If one does not it will not allow you to play that game anymore.

Somebody should make a gif when Morgan Freeman opens the box and its the Xbox1.

Have him say "USA don't come down here!" "Sony has the upper hand!"
