I wanted to put out this question. It seems like the XBox One will require some sort of authentication or license key to play the discs you put into it. Not entirely sure on that, but that is what it is sounding like. What will playing the XBox One be like in 30 years when Microsoft shuts down those servers? Will this box be utterly useless when it becomes a vintage gaming console? I just starting collecting N64 carts and the cool thing is I can actually track down and buy all 300 some games (laughably small number I know). I enjoy that I can still play consoles that are decades upon decades old. Heck NES and SNES still work and are fun experiences. The PS4 I don't think will have this same requirement and the Wii U doesn't either. The XBox One seems like it won't live much past its mainstream lifespan - or am I wrong - would love some feedback on this!
