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:

Basically Microsoft is a girl who friendzones you to go out with some douche, then when he ***** her over, she comes crawling back to you expecting to be treated like a princess.

I used to be an Xbox fan, but been really put off by their behaviour and attitude.

PS4 for me

Scales are tipped now, not sure whether to switch to Sony or stick with Microsoft. Being a Halo fanboy it's a tough decision..

Never trust the company that tries this in the first place... not with consoles. Plus I bet they try to bring it in later

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.

Jesus christ... Microsoft was doing all this for us, to get us cheaper games, to make life easier in so many ways.

And now we've ****** it all up. This is why we can't have nice things.

How does that get us cheaper games?
And I'm 100% certain that I'd pay 60$ for a game if that means I could do whatever the **** I want with it

Yeah it probably wasn't the massive backlash of hate or the defection of its entire fanbase.

That feeling of when you die and come back to life... that's Microsoft right now.

Still might opt for the PS4.

Can someone tell me why it would have been that bad? Steam dd similar things with used games, and lets be honest the 24 hour check in would have been inconvenient at times, but other than that totally manageable.

The reason we need disks even if the game is installed to the hard drive is for DRM purposes. That's how the 360 does it. The Xbox One was trying to make disks obsolete. Maybe they were going about it in the wrong way, and it's pretty evident that gamers didn't want this, so Microsoft backed off.

Everyone is acting like Microsoft murdered children for fun. They had an idea they thought would be best, and changed their policies due to fan feedback. I don't really see the problem.

It's unclear what has caused this? How about the fact that people were about to ass rape Microsoft with a spiked baseball bat? They basically watched their own console die months before it's release.
