Looks like Microsoft may be backing off on the DRM.

Quote:
Citing multiple sources, GiantBomb says Microsoft has decided to remove a laundry list of Xbox One restrictions that customers considered negative:

No more always online requirement

The console no longer has to check in every 24 hours

All game discs will work on Xbox One as they do on Xbox 360

Authentication is no longer necessary

An Internet connection is only required when initially setting up the console

All downloaded games will function the same when online or offline

No additional restrictions on trading games or loaning discs

Region locks have been dropped

Butt hurt much? I had a feeling that was going to happen.

Microsoft has confirmed they are removing all the requirements listed above. I'm guessing the Kinect is still required since I haven't seen it mentioned. I'm still going PS4.

Xbox one is ALWAYS watching muhahahaha! I wonder how many pervs at MSFT will get their jollys from the kinect video... I have never and never will have the desire for a kinect. I like sitting on my ass to play games. If I want to move around I go to the gym or go outside. No need to have a camera record me playing games 24/7.

Any guesses on next week's 180? Mine is:

"Xbox Live Gold membership no longer required for video recording/sharing".

lol, the community should just start complaining about requiring an xbl gold membership to play online, maybe they'll back track on that requirement too. It seems like Msft realizes how stupid they were and that sales would suffer if they didnt make these changes, I know plenty of Xbox guys that are/were switching to PS4 because of the silly XB requirements....

No doubt. At least they did it though after the E3 fiasco and post-E3 fallout. They do look pretty wishy-washy and stupid right now with all of the reversals but fortunately for them we consumers (at least us American ones) have short memories so they should recover nicely. I have a PS4 pre-ordered but I want to see stiff competition because it drives both companies to keep pushing and not get complacent.

I may get the Xbox One eventually but haven't seen anything that has really jumped out at me yet for my preferred type of games. I had both PS3 and 360 at the start of this gen but found I never used the 360 after a while so I eventually gave it to a friend. He used it all of the time so I felt better knowing it wasn't wasted just collecting dust under my TV. Do wish I had a chance to give Alan Wake and maybe the Fable games a shot though.

Yeesh, I have an older TV and am out of HDMI inputs so I guess I'm going to have to buy an HDMI switcher..... or .....convince the wife that I need a new TV!

I agree with you about the short-memory thing. Consumers really do have like a weeks memory.

It's funny you should say that about having both xb 360 and ps3. I have both as well but it was a reversal. I started with the PS3 and then nobody else I knew played it (they all sold it for some reason), so I got an Xbox 360 and do my gaming on that. The ps3 still gets use as a Blu-Ray player though.

I'm planning on getting the PS4, the only thing making me feel less enthusiastic is that I will have to pay for both XBL and PS+ if I want to still play on my XB360, whereas if I get the XBOne I would presumably only have to buy 1 xbox live membership (and all my gamerscore and achievements would transfer)
