We did it! The internet as a collective reacted so hard to MS's heavy handed ways.. that they ate their shit and did a complete turn-around! The A-holes tried to first F-us (AGAIN - I am still mad at MS sticking a touch controlled OS on my system, and then not doing anything to help me buy a touch-screen monitor) But the level of internet discontent, the level of their pre-orders were such, that even these money-grabbing snouts had to change their tone! I never thought that I'd see a xBox 180 .. but here it is: "In a late breaking news story, Microsoft today announced due to feedback from the Xbox and gaming community they have changed “certain policies” regarding their controversial digital-rights management features of the upcoming XBox One. The details are listed on the Xbox news site, which is being hammered left and right, resulting in errors when trying to load. According to the site Giant Bomb, the changes in DRM are the following: 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 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 This represents a complete 180 degree turnaround for MS, who barely a few days ago were telling us to go buy a xBox360 if we didn't like their policies!
