Microsoft's problem wasn't their restrictions it was their lack of explaining what they wanted to do, and their disorganization.
I would have had 0 problems not being able to buy used, had I been able to share full games with 10 different friends. Unfortunately rumors started that it was only a fraction of the game...Microsoft never did anything about it until it was too late. Hell I didn't even find out full game sharing until after the 180.
And I consider myself a very informed gamer.
The internet connection thing if it wasn't a daily thing but a bi-weekly thing or something I think would have worked better for people.
With that said, I understand why people buy used and wanted to keep that feature. (hell it's why I bought a PS4)
Also I still feel that the 360 controller is better than the PS4 one. Not by a significant amount, but it's still preferred.
