Microsoft does 180 on Xbox One online requirements, used games

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.

Microsoft waded into a shark-filled public relations pool with the Xbox One when they indicated that the device needed to stay online and that some method might be used to lock out used games unless gamers paid an additional fee. They should have seen it coming. It was just fucking stupid.

Hopefully this will keep the Xbox One from being another Surface – something no one wants.
