Elder Scrolls Online on PS4 and XBO requires CD key, rental and resale hindered

See full gallery on TechnoBuffalo

When console gamers get a chance to buy The Elder Scrolls Online: Tamriel Unlimited for either the PlayStation 4 or Xbox One, the thing they grab in a package will contain a CD key. That’s right, welcome back to the 90s and early 2000s, folks. CD keys are a thing again.

If you want to play the obviously always online Elder Scrolls Online, you’ll need this one-time-use CD key. That means you have to buy the game new, no rentals, resales or loans to friends allowed.

This whole thing came up on the game’s official forums, and one of the devs responded with specifics that confirm the existence of the CD key requirements.

“To clarify, you will need a unique game registration code in order to play the game, and used copies will not be eligible to receive a key if the code has already been redeemed…

…It works the same way as the PC version in that the code included in the box is to activate your ESOTU account and the discs are for installation purposes. If you own the disc but don’t have a key, you’ll be able to install the game and reach the login screen, but you won’t be able to log in and access the game without an active ESOTU account.”

Wowsers.

Some folks are offering up that this totally makes sense and is a non-story because the game is an MMO. Perhaps, but TESO is an MMO trying to make it on the console scene, a place with different standards for rental, loan and resale. The game should adapt to the standards of the platform, and not ask its users to change their frame of minds in order to play along.

So, no, you won’t be able to get TESO: Tamriel Unlimited used. You also won’t be able to rent it.

Algunos de mis amigos están ahora me llaman un apologista BlackBerry

Algunos de mis amigos están ahora me llaman un apologista BlackBerry, e incluso un fanboy BlackBerry, sólo porque resulta que tengo probado, y lo disfrutamos, el Z30-libre del teclado. Sin embargo, a pesar de mi predilección por ambos teclados y el RIM avances (er, BlackBerry) ha realizado recientemente, el Nexus One de Google 5 sigue siendo mi smartphone defecto de elección.
Pero eso cambió hace dos semanas - al menos temporalmente - cuando Jon Rettinger me retó a tratar de vivir con el dispositivo insignia de BlackBerry, el Pasaporte. Y ya que estoy por lo general para cualquier reto tecnológico que decidí darle un paso - y así que me puse el Nexus a un lado y se zambulló en la parte más profunda.

Gears of War remaster screenshots from footage leak

See full gallery on TechnoBuffalo The only thing Black Tusk and Microsoft have left to do on the Gears of War remaster is actually announce it. We’ve seen it hinted at, denied, and rated.Now we have some footage accidentally leaked onto the Xbox DVR site, likely by a developer who forgot to disable the automatic upload.This isn’t gameplay footage per se – the enemy is standing still in the clips while the player attacks them. It’s likely test footage for some of the gore physics or something like that. But it’s definitely footage taken in-game.The two images above were pulled from a NeoGAF thread on the leak comparing the screenshot of the new clips to one from the original Gears. Microsoft is likely scrambling to take the footage down, but currently the thread, linked to in the source for this story, has links to the videos.If you decide to click through and watch the clips, it’s important to note that they were filmed using the Xbox Game DVR and were filmed three months ago, before t…

The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt launch trailer take 2 – Go Your Own Way

You can call it another lonely day. Haven’t we been here once before? CD Projekt RED believes that The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt is far too amazing for just one launch trailer, so it has decided to create yet another just to drive home the fact that you need to play this game.The new “Go Your Way” launch trailer features more in-engine graphics instead of impressive pre-rendered CG, and its focus this time around is not our big, bad hero Geralt but rather the Princess Ciri. Don’t be fooled by her puppy dog eyes and adorable freckles. This girl will kill you in a flash! The trailer tells her tale of how she wandered from home, and tells of how Geralt sets out to find her.The relationship between these two is not the only star of the trailer either. Geralt’s fantasy world is full of real life horrors that extend beyond mere monsters. Slaughter, torture, executions, dangerous seductions. The trailer bares all that you will find in this horrible yet beautiful place, giving you a taste of the s…
