Not sure if it was worth a new thread so went with this one.

IGN posted a video with a theory of why the 360 failed in Japan and will M$ try with the 720.
 IGN News - Why Did Xbox 360 Fail in Japan?
The three big companies will have a domestic advantage and i think it's strange that the US consumers have not really recognised this when they wondered why everyone haven't embraced the xbox as 'they' have.

I'm excited to see what MS are going to bring to the table. Too bad they're not announcing their blockbuster release titles until E3.

Considering the amount of use I get from the 360 I won't be rushing out for a 720.

EA kills its controversial Online Pass program

EA is doing away with its Online Pass program from this point forward, a decision the video game publisher says is partially based on player response.

To be replaced by what? Did they wake up and not still hate the used game market? They have something else planned for sure!

I think it's more Sony saying you can play used games on the PS4 but it will be devs who decide which titles can.

Just re-confirming the Ubisoft hacking.

ANNOUNCEMENT: We'd like to repeat this morning's important post in order to ensure everyone is aware of why we've sent emails about Ubisoft account security suggesting a password change.

We recently discovered that one of our websites was exploited to gain illegal access to some of our online systems. As a result we recommend that all Ubisoft account holders change their password.

Please note that no personal payment information is stored with Ubisoft so your credit/debit card information was safe from this intrusion.

You can change your password using this link [https://secure.ubi.com/register/ForgotPwd.aspx?genomeId=5b61fa9f-305b-422b-aa3a-0efcf8370dec&lang=en-UK&nexturl=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.uplay.com]. Passwords can also be changed by using the profile editing options in the Uplay mobile app.

Full details of the incident, along with a Q&A, can be found at our Support site here [http://ubi.li/5zwub] or on the Ubisoft blog here [http://blog.ubi.com/security-update-for-all-ubisoft-account-holders/].

We would like to sincerely apologise for any inconvenience this may cause and thank you for your understanding.

I've been on Uplay a fair bit with Far Cry Blood Dragon and had to change my password tonight just to play Driver San Fran

Bit annoying that yet another service can't protect users info.  >:(

I was just thinking how handy it would be if next-gen games were also sold as 'installation discs'. Then users just need to purchase the unlock key from the Playstation/Xbox store and have the game running as if it was a digital download without breaking the download quota bank! They could even offer multiple games per disc as a means to cross-sell and perhaps offer a slight discount to offset the installation disc purchase price.

This is always going to be an issue until we move to either physical keys (smart cards etc.) or biometrics.  As long as the security is through knowledge and nothing else (one factor security pretty much) it is going to be open to exploitation.  I know the field of voice biometrics ("my voice is my password") has come a long way in the last few years, so hopefully something like that will become more prevalent... or put a smart card reader in the PS4/PS5 and tie your account to that, although smart cards can be hacked as well.

It is pretty reliable and there are ways of detecting recordings etc. 

What you get back from the voice bio engine is a confidence score.  You then decide what to do with that score... often, when you are not reallly sure you do a "liveness" test to ensure it is a real person not a recording.  We also mark down for "perfect" matches.
