Miss Playing From Disc2

 

 

Cordova, TN; March 12, in the year of our Lord 2018--Family Friendly Gaming, the industry leader in covering the family friendly video games is returning to a concept that we have not written about for over two years now. Back on January 25, in the year of our Lord 2016 I wrote an article about missing playing from disc. Here is a link to that story in case you want to get a refresher. I realized that mainly I was talking about the PS3, Wii U, and Xbox 360. Sure I referenced the PS4, and Xbox One. The Nintendo Switch was not a part of that. So I thought an update to that article was in order. Where do you stand on this issue?

It bothers me with these modern day video games we must download the game. Why do we have discs for the Xbox One and PS4 then? What happens if we are not connected to the Internet when we try to install a game? The Nintendo Switch has cartridges so we can easily play games off of them. The loading and installation is much quicker on the Nintendo Switch as well. Sony and Microsoft are trailing in this section. Why are they trailing so badly? I have literally sat there for thirty minutes waiting for a game to download and install. The horrible thing is I put a disc into the system. Microsoft and Sony have made gaming worse in this regard. It gets worse as each game gets larger. It takes longer to download and install. This baffles me since I have a disc in hand.

Certain games won’t even install anymore. When we bought an Xbox One S system (Black Friday 2017), we tried to install Forza Horizon 3 on it. Kid Gamer likes playing that game. Microsoft will not allow that game to work. Forza Horizon 3 downloaded and installed after we put in the disc. It will never log into the game though. We had deleted Forza Horizon 3 on the original Xbox One. We had to set up the original Xbox One somewhere else, download and install it to actually be able to play it again. Come on Microsoft. We should be able to take our disc and play it on an upgraded system we purchased. It is ridiculous that we cannot take our property (game disc), and play it on different systems. We paid for it. We can take a CD and play it on different devices. Are you as irritated about the horrible business practices of Microsoft and Sony?
