Default Microsoft backpeddling on their Xbox One DRM

http://news.xbox.com/2013/06/update

tl;dr You can lend games or play used games like before. The 24 hour internet check is gone, you only need internet when you set up the console for the first time.

What do you think? I had a 360 this gen and had already decided on a PS4. I don't really think this will change my mind. Not much incentive to switch back to Xbox for me especially since it's still a hundred dollars more.

BTW it looks like the mandatory Kinect is still there since they didn't mention it. I know some people had a problem with that.

That's the main thing preventing me from even considering buying an Xbone.

A $100 price difference due to a feature/peripheral that I have zero interest in using? No thanks.

At least they're listening to the negative feedback, I'm sure they will make a few more changes before release. I hope this sends a message to other companies that the consumer should always be the first priority and your share holders second.

Basically Xbox One admitted there guilty and will probably change again once the console is out

This is a move of desperation which they've pretty much been forced into, not really a case of listening to the community. They're trying to save face, nothing more than that. I've said before that I cannot fault Microsoft for the Xbox 360, for me personally it's been great. But in this particular case, they've addressed just a small speck in the ocean. Still got the issue of the price, still got this mandatory kinect thing.

This is merely a reality check for Microsoft.
