For players who tried to access the newly purchased Far Cry 4 on the Xbox One console, an error repeatedly occurred that blocked them access to the title.
Those who were planning on riding elephants and taking down some outposts knew nothing of this issue.
Many players tried to re-install the game through their disc and load save games from the cloud but the console refused to budge. It showed an error code and no one was able to get into the title.
After a long break, Microsoft officially announced that Xbox One marketplace has accidentally removed the entire game from the list. Because of this issue, players who tried to access Far Cry 4 faced an error message that asked them whether they have purchased the game yet even though every one of them had the title listed under their username and was supposed to launch without questions.
Additional Verification Process
By now, Microsoft has fixed the error on the console and has replaced the game in the marketplace. However, the new issue has also confirmed that that company was actually using an online verification system that made sure the game was indeed officially purchased before allowing gamers to load it.
This is just one example and it is this feature that has been annoying players for a long while. If you are to carry your console to some place and play the game without an internet connection or try to login when bored, it wouldn’t let you play unless the online verification results turn positive.
In an effort to stop piracy, game developers and console owners are simply annoying gamers by imposing too many restrictions on them, especially those who have actually purchased it while pirates can play through it without any difficulty by making use of the torrent copies.
