I'm still waiting on more info on how combat will actually work. Think about it EQ had abilities then they had a spell ready bar, so what's to say that the spells won't be completely separate from the 8 abilities and usable outside of what classes you pick.
Nope, I'd rather see a mechanic where you stay dead until another player carries your corpse to a shrine or uses a spell/item to rez you. Semi permadeath would add much more fear than any corpse run.
I wonder if you'll be able to dig shortcuts into the lower depths of The Hole that would be pretty cool.
They just revealed the game and the rumor mill is in full production churning out speculation in record numbers. Good thing I don't rely on this site to give me my gaming facts. One thing I am sure of, this game will be an abominable disappointment compared to the wild imagination most of this sites forum goers have.
I have a problem with them releasing another expansion, when the first expansion is still bug ridden. I pop in to check out what has been done to fix dungeon settings, broken encounter spawns and epic destinies only to find they're still as broken as when it released.

I would rather see a detailed faction system where certain fations trust you based on deity and alignment, where others consider you KoS. Then twist it so you build notoriety based on your deeds and work for specific factions. It would make for more immersive gameplay, and make those factions you work to build trust with more important.

PvP could be more detailed too, two gods that are malevolent could have sects that despise each other and the same with benevolent gods. Then players wouldn't need to worry about a clear good/evil alignment.

Also for those that keep stating "You can share your games online with up to 10 people." current thing flying around right now is that you are going to need a Xbox Live Gold Family plan membership and those "family members" you are sharing with are going to have to be part of that plan. So yes, you will be able to share your Xbox One games with those you choose to include in the family plan lol. 

 

A rumor flying around is that only the master account will be able to share its games library with the others. This however is simply a rumor from a single source so I'm not sure how much stock I would put in it. 

 

We will have to see how this all plays out, but as I said before the devils in the details and Microsoft has been trying very hard to hide all of the details the more details that come out the easier it is to see why they are trying to hide the details. 

So... 

 

The link I shared in my previous post was straight from the xbox web site so it's not rumor or speculation, on selling and lending/sharing physical games:

  • Trade-in and resell your disc-based games: Today, some gamers choose to sell their old disc-based games back for cash and credit. We designed Xbox One so game publishers can enable you to trade in your games at participating retailers. Microsoft does not charge a platform fee to retailers, publishers, or consumers for enabling transfer of these games.
     
  • Give your games to friends: Xbox One is designed so game publishers can enable you to give your disc-based games to your friends. There are no fees charged as part of these transfers. There are two requirements: you can only give them to people who have been on your friends list for at least 30 days and each game can only be given once.
     

In our role as a game publisher, Microsoft Studios will enable you to give your games to friends or trade in your Xbox One games at participating retailers. Third party publishers may opt in or out of supporting game resale and may set up business terms or transfer fees with retailers. Microsoft does not receive any compensation as part of this. In addition, third party publishers can enable you to give games to friends. Loaning or renting games won’t be available at launch, but we are exploring the possibilities with our partners.

 

As for your personal game library:

  • Access your entire games library from any Xbox One—no discs required: After signing in and installing,you can play any of your games from any Xbox One because a digital copy of your game is stored on your console and in the cloud. So, for example, while you are logged in at your friend’s house, you can play your games.
     
  • Share access to your games with everyone inside your home: Your friends and family, your guests and acquaintances get unlimited access to all of your games. Anyone can play your games on your console--regardless of whether you are logged in or their relationship to you.

 

It's all layed out in the link http://news.xbox.com/2013/06/license

It doesn't look like they're trying to hide the details, instead people are spreading rumors and others are clinging to them rather than searching out the info for themselves.

Why get the PS4 instead?  The DRM, online verification, and region lock aren't factors to me.  The hardware is nearly identical, or practically so and the price points aren't that far off from each other if you consider the Sony version of Kinect.  The premium services cost roughly the same.  The free game selection for the PS4 appeals to me , as does the Windows integration with the XB1.

I agree much of it is similar except

- no renting games on X1

- no streaming media without premium services   (PN+ is not required for netflix, etc)

 

- x1 is unable to play games unless internet connected every 24 hrs 

(making it an issue for any traveling w X1 where internet access is limited/absent)

http://news.xbox.com/2013/06/license

-sounds like used/rented games can be played on X1 to me

-I keep a live gold sevice because I like to support platforms I enjoy

-I can't remember the last time I had an internet ready device that I didn't keep connected, that and I don't travel to play video games so the last point doesn't bother me

 

I'm in the same boat as Betaguy I've had a life-long boycott on sony electronics after 2 PS2 consoles and an Emerson dvd player filled with sony guts died shortly after purchasing them. I've owned many sony products before that and all of them seemed to have a short lifespan, so I simply don't buy them anymore.

One of the things I think adds to the complication of a "redo" of Everquest is that the game was obviously designed around a lower population then what we are used to now. I think it was 150k subs? That's chump change for even the lowest MMOs now.

The best way to design an MMO is to aim for a modest amount of players.  trying to please everyone means you please no one.

 

Also, 150k isnt far off average if you throw WoW and GW2 out of the picture.

Exactly.. the only MMO to even capture a huge amount of players will, and always will be, is  WoW (for reasons unknown to me). Too many MMOs go all Pokemon and "Gotta catch 'em all" on consumers, got hit that bottom line yo. But when you go back and look at the most successful MMOs that is quite the opposite direction;

Everquest was made by one guy with a vision, he wanted to make a game he enjoyed and shared it with others with the same passion. Didn't like it? That's OK, it's just a game afterall. Guild Wars 1; same deal. Made by three experienced developers in their basement, but they made it as a game they enjoyed. Asheron Call 1; made by a dude in his garage and has some of the worst Netcode in exsistence, but again..made by a guy with a passion. Now look at their sequels, you see the same passion? Sure they tried to sell their passion, but you could tell by the dev speak what was going to happen.

I don't want to turn this into an Indie > Business. But businesses should take a page from the book of making a game for the player rather then the bottom line. That's what I feel what people want when they want to experience EQ again.

WoW attracted many non gamers and social gamers, if you stand at any city gate ingame you'll see that most spend a small amount of time actually playing the game instead they use most of their time socializing in chat while hanging out in a central location. The point being most that play WoW only play it, not MMOs in general.

As for EQ they didn't have feedback from the general public on what they wanted in a game. When it was designed they only knew what they thought would work with the technology they had. If they had today's tech, do you think it would have been the game it turned out to be?

I don't think thay every design choice that was made was exactly as they wanted it, but was necessary due to the tech of the time.

http://www.cad-comic.com/cad/20130522 This one made me laugh.

I for one don't hold real loyalty to either console manufacturer. I think both will be rushed and end up with problems like the last gen consoles had. In which neither had a proper recall issued (as should be industry standard when you mass-release a faulty product) nor did the companies admit that there were widespread problems with the products. 

The price model of a game isn't even on my list of things to factor in when deciding to play a game. Waiting around to see if the market is going to change to a B2P model is only going to limit my choices severely, which doesn't sound like too much fun.

WE pale face?... ^^  Gamers, perhaps, but the "always connected, yapping on FacePalm, or their phones, or texting crowd" are going to eat this up with a spoon.  Not to mention the endless legions of TV Zombies, that can't get enough of various sports, Reality TV and other such brain rotting nonsense. ^^

Not to mention many of those people do indeed play video games.

What people I think are failing to realize here is that the new XBOX is going to be your one-stop shop for everything you already have or own.

 

It won't run your Xbox 360 games.

I just kinda hate the way M$ have made the One a re imagining of the a Windows Media Center PC from about 5 years ago...

Lifemedia

versus...

 

PS4 is the gamers choice for next gen console.

You know PS4 is not backwards compatible either right?

I left a few months before BC, the constant combat updates were really annoying playing as a warrior. Came back recently for a few months and enjoyed it for what it was. Now I dabble in a few MMOs on occasion, but have really gotten back into console gaming for the most part. MMOs seem to have such short term communities lately with a solo mindset even when in a guild which just kills it for me.

Yeah but if they're not going though with the idea it's a win for consumers like myself (many of my titles are second hand) and merchants who deal heavily in second hand games. 

Your preaching to the choir. all my games are second hand. as i said before, i'm poor.  Luckily we don't have to worry about it, since used games are not going to be blocked on console.

 

However, i just thought about it. It does make me wonder about this whole installation thing. if i let my friend borrow my game, i lose the ability to play the installed version right, its pretty much the way they said it. how much do i have to go though afterwards to play it again. do i have to do the entire install again? anyone who owns a PS3 can tell how much of a pain in the ass this would be.

From what is being said you won't need the disc for your installed games and will have the ability to re-download them at any time. As for friends borrowing them I did read somewhere that they will be able to digitally purchase rights to the borrowed game rather than purchase and fresh install a new copy. So I wouldn't think that lending a game would stop you from playing it anytime you want.

So far it's confirmed my decision to stick to PS4 / PC. I have all systems now, but my 360 sees no use outside the occasional Gears game with my bro-in-law, and my Wii collects dust. PS3 definitely sees the most use.

Beyond that, I'm hoping Sony does not pull a "fee for used games" move, especially not attaching a game disc to one account. It already annoys me that save games are tied to an account, so when I've tried to continue a save game at my work's PS3 during down time, I get c-blocked by that crud. If they do move to the same measure of tying the entire game to a profile, I'll skip PS4 as well. Luckily there's been no word of that.

Actually the second hand games rumor has been updated http://www.ubergizmo.com/2013/05/xbox-one-will-have-a-pre-owned-game-fee-to-curb-used-game-sales/  

Update: Xbox support on Twitter has confirmed that there would be “no fee” associated with used games. Apparently there was a previous miscommunication with Wired:

That's great. I don't buy used games, but I've always been under the impression that the second hand market directly aids the first hand market, so I've never agreed to this ideology that used games should be blocked.

Having said that, the main issue for me personally is still tying the disc to the profile/account (as I mentioned taking my games to my work consoles to play on, which use a separate profile/account). No fee is still great news no matter which way you slice it, though!

My curiosity though is simple. If my games are being tied to my account, and my account is transferable. Would i then in theory be able to transfer my account to be on 2 consoles. And if that is possible with things like Cloud could i then do the same with lets say... my save data.

 

If this is possible it would win points in my eyes.

I haven't found any info on that, and I must say I'm curious about it now too. I would like to see that happen.

Reading it over. it sounds more to me like they pulled a "holy shit they REALLY dont like that idea... eh... eh... Miscommunication go go!!"

Well it seemed fishy to me because most were saying it would work by tying the disc to the user account, that is exactly what sony patented http://www.gamespot.com/news/sony-patents-tech-to-block-used-games-6401992. As at odds competitively as the two companies are, I find it hard to believe that Microsoft swallowed their pride and paid sony for the rights to use the tech.

 

I don't. think of it this way. you invent something that other people really hate so you decide not to use it. your competition steps up and goes "that's awesome sell it to us" What do you do, tell them how bad the reaction was and make it possible that they can get a leg up on you. or sell it to them and walk away laughing.

 

Or if they didnt buy it, looked at the idea and made their own version.

Yeah but if they're not going though with the idea it's a win for consumers like myself (many of my titles are second hand) and merchants who deal heavily in second hand games.

I can't see how I can play in a game where I know some players have a huge unfair advantage over others because the AH is really the main end game and will take months to recover .

 

So I quit .

 

 

I hope you at least left a big steaming pile on the boss's desk before you stormed out.
