*a little less hate.

How would you feel if i said with a straight face "I am going to **** your mother" and then just change my mind because that would not make us friends anymore?

They had ******** restrictions that made you pay full price to rent games. You couldn't do whatever you wanted with that copy.
You were stuck to certain things to do that they approve. (i.e. can't let a friend borrow it)

They were going to make you have internet constantly, a camera always watching and listening to you (still going to be apart of it) and if any of that faltered YOU are out of a system because it's just not gonna work now.

Everyone hated it, but the whole system was build around DRM! You can't just flip a switch and turn it off!

A week later they flipped a switch and turned it off. They were forced to conform to make sales, but the point if it is they tried their damn hardest to screw everyone over and people don't trust the company anymore.

Let's say we all buy this system for $100 more than the PS4, so we can get slightly lower gaming power that's then split with t.v., internet, movies, fantasy football, and bing.... Then we get any accessories we'd need for it, buy the $60 subscription to live. So far that's a LOT of money sunk into this.

Would you abandon it all if they switched it all back?

A lot of people might, but they have your money at this point. Even then people would still pay for some smaller things with the system and they'd make a fair run with it. I'm going with the company that didn't try and screw me from the start and is decently cheaper in price.

The most intrusive DRM in history?

People hated it not because they wanted to buy it, but because if it was successful then it would've set an awful precedence.

If it had succeeded with all the ******** DRM, then I could see Sony and Nintendo doing the same with their next consoles.

So I'm glad they got rid of all the DRM, but I'm still not getting one.

they get hate because they are a company that treated us like a ****** friend, there should have been more professionalism involved with how they handled how they addressed the issues the consumers were having, instead we got "Your internet should be better, you shouldn't live in rural areas so you can play, you have to have kinect, you can't trade in games," I mean it's like they never heard, If it isn't broken don't fix it.

well no because they only fixed it because they saw how much money and stock they were losing . I'm getting a ps4 and I won't get a xbox1 ever why because microsoft screwed me over and i don't care if you fix it because i have lost all my respect and trust in microsoft's gaming division. which the move is going to suck because this gen i was a huge 360 fan and loved halo but at least i get destiny and infamous 2nd son looks amazing

I am an electronic's salesman and our Microsoft rep pretty much summed it up perfectly. He said "Yes, there were some flaws when the Xbox one was released, but all the negatives were blown way out of proportion by nerds on the internet who have nothing better to do than spam complaints and speculations about the system." Those were my sentiments from the start. Yeah when E3 rolled around things seemed ****** up, but all of these nerdy faggots decided to get all emo with their "like omg microsoft I have played xbox like furever. I cant believe you have betrayed me.. I iz sony boy now" before the system even dropped. Seriously? do you think Microsoft would blatantly keep new features implemented if they weren't successful? People need to quit speculating and wait to play the system before being pathetic and butt-hurt about **** they know nothing about....

Every one seems to leave out ONE detail.

Microsoft wanted to tell us what we can or can't do with our product, and some people would let them.

Assume for a second they left in those policies....assume it.

That would tell other companies that they could do the same yes? Now your cell phone company could say that if you don't use your phone, as a PHONE for a certain time each day that it would become useless for all other functions for 24 hours. Unless of course you pay a fee.

Eventually we would have to use every product the way a company would expect us to use a product because if we didn't we would lose access to certain doesn't even begin to explain why this system is ******* atrocious. I could continue, but to be honest...I work at a game store...this **** is all we talk about all day, and NO ONE ******* GETS IT.

Except Steam lets you play your games without signing in to the internet every 24 hours.

The Xbox 1 wouldn't of allowed that if it stayed with it's policies.

The first time in a while MS bent to the consumers will.. And it essentially made the X1 worse than what it was..

Although, there have been rumors I've heard that they're making a separate console, with all the features the original X1 had (Online only)

Yes they fixed but only now when they notice that not everybody is on their side. Microsoft at the beginning didn't really listen to their customers.

I'm gonna take a blind leap here and say people are still mad because they're only revising their policies so they don't lose the entire market. Not because they care about service.
PS4 for me, change of pace. Anybody who goes Xbox One, your losses and your gains, I'm not fussing over other people's choices unless they have an actual effect on me…

The fact that they originally planned to force all those changes in the first place is what has people mad.

So, we're now feeling bad for them? I wasn't angry at them for fixing their problems, I was angry at them for not getting it right the first time. You can **** up in preschool, but when you get into the real world, you don't **** up.

I agree but think your statement requires some rewording.

I'm not mad at Microsoft because they retracted the undesirable policies. I'm upset with Microsoft because I no longer feel like I can trust them. I'm glad there now is nothing major to complain about for the Xbox One besides the name and the fact that it's not part of the PC master race , but it only seems like they're retracting those policies for now just because of the backlash and are simply biding their time until they can implement some other profitable way to screw the consumer.

TL;DR: Microsoft cheated on me and has to earn my trust back.
