Microsoft to Pull Complete Reversal on
Xbox One DRA/ f Policies
by Patrick Klapex on June 19, 2013
Sources indicate Microsoft is going to move away from what' s
sawed the company so much headache.
The between Microsoft and got more interesting. Multiple sources inform me Microsoft will
announce what amounts to a complete reversal on its DRM policies for}{ ho: x: One today.
What does this mean?
It No more always online requirement
It The console no longer has to check in every 24 hours
It All game discs will work on Hook One as they do on Hook see
It An Internet connection is only required when initially setting up the console
It All downloaded games will function the same when online or offline
It No additional restrictions on trading games or loaning discs
It Region locks have been dropped
It is caused this huge change in policy right after , a week where Microsoft executives spent
days explaining, justifying, and talking about its policies to the press. I suspect ' s official
announcement will say something to the effect of "ways been closely listening to cc) ."
Based on what I' m being told, that' s definitely true.
We reached out to Microsoft for comment.
Microsoft has taken an enormous amount of heat regarding DRM policies with its new console. Sony became
consumer heroes at , announcing PlayStation it would not treat used games differently, and the status duo
would reign. The company released this video, twisting the knife:

I'll be getting the Xbone now for Halo. That was one thing I was really sad about when I decided I was getting the PS4. I've played halo since I was little and love the story.

So, you are spending 500$ for a game that will be another halo 4 with a little improvement in graphics? That's why they do what they want, because customers are stupid.

No, I'm spending it to play games like Ryse, Titanfall, Dead Rising, all of those. But I'll be getting the Xbox as opposed to the PS4 because of Halo.

Actually you are spending $500 for a console, with the Kinect and a built-in digibox, as opposed to $400 for just a console. Also, in my opinion, the Xbox has far better exclusives (eg. Halo, Titanfall, Dead Rising, D4 etc.), at least at the moment, compared to the PS4 (only Killzone comes to mind) and all the previous Sony exclusives (eg. MGS, Kingdom Hearts, etc.) are now coming to both consoles.

Halo is ******* **** now. 4 was meh and its planned yearly installments now. It's ******* dead. Capcom said in an e3 interview Dead rising 3 was going to be more serious, mature and realistic to appeal to fans of games such as cod. So it's just going to be like any other **** zombie game instead of just making DR 2 again with more weapons and a bigger area. Also turning ****.

Titanfall is on PC too i heard.

Nobody knows much about d4.


Whereas ps4 is guaranteed great exclusives like last gen. Naughty dog, sucker punch, Media molecule, sony santa monica etc. All fantastic first party devs.

We saw last gen just how **** MS is with exclusives. Don't eat that ****. Just don't.

It's lost everything that made it special. It is now just your average space fps with a halo skin. I'm not gonna lie and say it's not fun at all. But i got bored of halo 4 a lot faster than the others. It doesn't feel right. And the planned yearly installments wont make that any better.

kingdom of hearts 3 is coming to the Xbox one as well as far as i have read. From my personal view the Xbox has better exclusives. Also Xbox should have stood their ground on the 24 hour check and pre-owned game policy.

PS4 is $100 cheaper. Has better exclusives at launch and in the pipeline. Sony has the largest stable of 1st party dev studios in the world.

30 exclusives in the works, 12 of them new IP's and 20 of which will launch in the first year.

They also arent shoving an always on useless camera down our throats that needs a kings throne room of space to function properly.

Meanwhile, MS has 15 exclusives to be released in its 1st year, which is respectable but all 15 have been announced and some are kinect drivel or simply download drivwl like lococycle. Only 8 are new IP's.

Sony has only announced 5 of their 20 first year exclusives, 3 of which are new IP's meaning we have another 15 exclusives to go in year one with 9 more new IP's inbound.

The war is by no means on "equal" footing. Even if you choose to ignore the flip flopping PR disaster that has been the last couple months of the XBone reveal.

To be honest it's not about the exclusives that have been announced it's about the talent that is behind them, such as Naughty Dog.

Nowhere has this been said. The Titanfall developers said they were maybe thinking about discussing the possibility of releasing Titanfall on other systems. No word of Dead Rising either, but I believe the game creators are either owned by, or having their games published by, Microsoft game studios. Can't see DR3 being on ps4. Titanfall maybe, but no word on that.

I honestly can't see them not releasing it on Steam. Such a huge PC service that if they left out, would cost them so many PC sales. It probably wouldn't affect them too much, seeing as the majority of their sales will easily be on Xbone and 360, but still...

The snow would melt against his armor then refreeze, potentially damaging his armor or at the very least slow him down.

Even if it was sand it would be useful for him having the cloak since the sand would get stuck in the cracks in between the armor plates and the undersuit damaging the suit.

The problem isn't speed or collision, it's particles getting stuck in his suit slowing it down or even damaging functions of it.

That is the most accurate analogy I have ever seen for this situation, I'll have to use that. PS4 for me also even if they do make said changes. Cause now that we know they want the alway online DRM, it's likely that they'll try to implement something like it after you buy their $500 console.

Look at the xbox exclusives, there's not really anything other than some games that aren't great exclusive openers. The best games I see right off the bat are Battlefront 3, Destiny, and KH3, and if memory serves me correctly, KH3 and Destiny are on both consoles. I'm just going with the cheaper console (though it may be made with cheaper parts) just because I'm a cheap bastard like that(Plus I don't like the kinect always on thing)

I thought 3 ended it nicely anyway. It ends as it begins, cryosleep.
Then 4 comes along and undoes everything:
You didn't defeat the flood

Indeed. I personally have no problem with changes to the game as much as they may bother the next person, but since the Halos before 4 were my childhood games I consider them to be the best. I can accept change because frankly there's no stopping it. Carrying it on for me means a new adventure, really. Some of the things added in were by popular demand and the game is still fun for me.

It all comes down to opinion in the end.

I just have no emotional attachment to the story anymore, so it isnt a big loss for me.

I'm gonna buy them both eventually. I want inFamous: Second Son and Halo 5. Luckily, I've got a job, so gaming systems, a new computer, and gas/fast food is where my money's going.

Not exactly, I'm just working at Buffalo Wild Wings. I'm just good at saving up my money as long as it's going towards something. It'll take a while to do all that, but neither system comes out until christmas time anyway. I figure it'll take two or three paychecks, so I should be able to get a computer then focus on a PS4, then the Xbox One later when Halo 5 comes out and they've got a bundle with it or a price drop. inFamous: Second Son comes out I think January or February, and Watch Dogs, Battlefield 4, and Destiny are going to be on the PS3 and Xbox 360 anyway, so there's really no huge rush.

You've got it planned out, I like that. Are you a fan of Battlefront 3, also? I heard that's going to be amazing. Battlefront 2 was brilliant in my opinion.

Oh hell yes! Battlefront 2 was amazing, the space battle were my favorite part. I'm really excited for Battlefront 3, when I saw the AT-AT step on the dude, I did an audible gasp, followed by a much more audible fanboy screech. I haven't heard anything about it besides that trailer, but given that it's going to be made by the same people as Battlefield 4, or at least published by the same people, it'll be great. I'm not a huge Battlefield 4 fanboy, but the multiplayer gameplay involved using a tank to take down a skyscraper. It won me over.

Indeed. Battlefield 4 also caught my attention, it's definitely one of the games I'll be aiming to get providing I have the money. I haven't seen much on Battlefront 3, so I'll do research. I was overjoyed hearing it was out, though. If it's Xbox One exclusive, I'll be disappointed that it's not for PS4 as well, but still. Battlefront 3, right?

Halo and Destiny are two different things. Halo's Xbox only, but Destiny I'm not too sure about. They used to be made by the same company also.

incorrect. at least some people will have lost faith in microsoft, and refuse to trust the people that brought us "play your 360 instead. everyone else is just gonna nut up and buy both when they have the cash. also, like any of these lazy bums is going to go to the trouble of cancelling their preorder of ps4.

The only thing they're accepting is that they can't do this all at once.

They will try again, slowly, step by step, to re-integrate these "features."

Tell me, have they changed their TOS to reflect these changes, or should we still expect "no privacy?"

And I suppose the kinect is still required, and is still always on.

From what I heard, there are different settings you can do where it is turned off, and even if there aren't, you can just cover up the lens and mic with some type of material.

Kinect is required yes, but it comes with the ******* console so what is the big ******* deal? Yes, it is expensive, but you get the console and kinect, and it's next-gen **** too.
As for always online, have you actually given it any ******* thought? Do you seriously think it is plausible that every kinect camera will be streaming to MS so they can watch you masturbate? Kinect will be switched on so it's microphone can hear you say 'xbox on'. How would it record everything? Think for a ******* second about the scale: the storage and monitors and bandwidth required to stream EVERY SINGLE KINECT CAMERA. One person read 'the mic will hear you and switch on the console', and more than likely because of the paranoia emerged from the NSA bs, decided that meant the camera would watch and record every single thing they and anyone else did ever.

The issue isn't that it would be constantly streaming or not, of course it wouldn't that's ******* retarded. The issue is that the TOS basically says "you have no right to privacy because this thing is always on."

That does look dodgy, but nowhere does it relate to kinect. You seem to know what your talking about, but far too many have blown this way out of proportion. At the end of the day though, they say they will do it to the extent permitted by the law. It's permitted by law, so they didn't even have to put that in the TOS, they told you they might, being good guys.

The fact that they are keeping any of these "features" is ********. We as consumers have a voice, our voice may not be in a literal sense, but we choose who to give our money too. I for one, will not be giving money to Microsoft for an Xbox ONE. I strongly urge people not to buy products from companies that do stuff like this. We have a voice, It does matter, We need to use it.

Everyone is constantly complainign about the kinect being on 24/7.

Unplug the ******* thing if you dont want it on when you arent playing on the system. You kno for a fact that NOT EVERY SINGLE GAME IN THE ENTIRE WORLD NEEDS the kinect so unplug it when youre playing a game that doesnt need it. maybe thats too difficult for people to do.

oh no, some conspiracy theory about how they can backtrace your hard drives and all your base are belong to them.... "This is bad guise, they'll see my fat lazy ass screaming at 12 yr olds while playing COD"
