After Xbox One was unveiled along with PlayStation 4 and Wii U, but the revelation has been somewhat rocky and pockmarked with numerous blows in the PR department. With the Xbox One, Microsoft has seen criticism about how the used game market with interact with their console (potentially with fees for customers, for retailers, for publishers?) that the console will require a 24-hour check in (and fortunately not an always-on DRM style.) Possibly seeing that this "social" attitude isn't being taken well by gamers or gaming press, Microsoft felt the need to beef up the expectations in hardware. Providing an answer... more »
The National Security Agency and the US government in general is being bombarded with criticism regarding NSAgate. When news of the NSA's data mining operations surfaced, not many news outlets or people were altogether surprised--having suspected something had been going on all along--however, the extent thereof and the type have been veiled in so much secrecy and had become so much more agressive since 9/11 it's difficult to know what's been done or how it's been done and especially how that affects the very security and privacy of common citizens.

I’ve been studying and playing massively multiplayer online (MMO) games for years now and the most fun element of all of them is having and seeing in-universe human cohabitation in that virtual world. In fact, this is the particular definition that separates an MMO from something that’s just massive and multiplayer. This E3, Sony, Microsoft, and Ubisoft appear to be trying to change that definition by tweaking it just slightly. I’ve heard more than once the marketing buzz “blurring the line between singleplayer and multiplayer” and while this isn’t satisfying, it’s a fair definition of what’s been presented.
