    I don't have high hopes for the future of console gaming if all the rumors are true (ie, having to register online ANY game you buy to receive an activation code, and HAVING TO BE CONNECTED TO THE INTERNET to play, even if it's a single-player game). Oh, and not being able to play used games - unless you want to shell out more money for a "secondary console", whatever that means.
    I don't know about the "have to register online" thing. I haven't heard anything about that, or having to be connected to the internet to play. I know EA is doing a thing right now, where if a game has an online multiplayer mode, to use it you have to register your game. Then if you buy that game used you have to purchase a activation code for a small fee. I'm not a big fan of that, but as far as I know EA are the only one's doing it right now, and they're receiving a whole lot of crap for it.

    I've heard about the connected to Internet requirement but it's just a rumor. I can't imagine that happening. Ea is the king of micro fees. They seem to charge for so many things.

    Well look at Diablo III. Major title. No connection, no play. Even single player will require online connection.

    No ,I resent my password and got the All Clear ID protection for the year, but it went out after that. I don't know what's wrong with it, I keep getting a number to give to the tech guys, but I never did it. If I wiped the hardrive and reformatted it, it would probably work.

    i see, strange deal. I usually play offline since I'm into rpgs. But I like to get my shooter action on as well from time to time.

    Is that just PC? I've seen that before for computers but never a console.

    You know why they do that right? It's blizzards way of trying to keep people from pirating the game. Game pirating isn't really something that consoles have to worry about too much.

    From what I understand it's a pain in the ass to hack a console to play copied or pirated games. Plus I think having a disc is required to play anyway.

    In most cases, it requires a hardware modification which completely voids any and all warranty's. I think the only exception is the Nintendo Wii, which can be software moded (I actually did this to my Wii). Lets me play all my "old school" original Nintendo roms on it, as well as some other functionality that Nintendo never built into it which they should have.

    That would be cool to try with the Wii. I don't think I have the technical skills to do hardware mods though.

    None of the games I have will let me play without the internet because once theres an update for the game it won't let you play anymore until you update it. GTA, COD for sure that I know of. I couldn't play Black ops even offline the entire time the newwork was down because there was an update I didnt have yet and couldnt get.

    When I was over in Japan, people where paying $50 ($5000 yen) to have their PS2s chipped so they could play japanese games before they hit the states, bangkok bootlegs, and games that never made it to the us (usually for grotesque violence.) I remember playing the japanese version of Onimusha about a year before it hit us markets. I didn't understand a lot of the story, but it was awesome! I think my PS2 is still chipped (I've had 3 and chipped two of them), but I don't have any of those games anymore...

    Weird, I never had the problem with COD on the xbox. Granted I never bothered getting Black Ops or MW3, so it may have been different with those games. I do like GTA, but I could just never justify purchasing them, when I know I'd get bored of it after a couple of hours (open world games do that to me).

    GTA is the only open world game I like. I find others just try to imitate it for the most part. Used to be my favorite series but I tried playing GTAV again recently and couldnt get into it. I dont know if its because I was already done with it or because It's not my thing anymore. We'll see when the new one comes out. If you like COD you have to get Black Op and/or MW3, the online experience has gotten much better. I was addicted to both for a long time when I got them. One I prestiged I felt like I completed my mission or something n stopped playing. I think I just got too lazy to sit up after work to be honest. lol.

    COD MW2 was alright, but I dropped it the second Battlefield Bad Company 2 came out, which I played pretty much straight up until Battlefield 3 came out.

    It really was. I wish they'd throw some of those maps into BF3.
