There was huge backlash when Microsoft announced their new DRM “Pirate stopping” initiative for the Xbox One. They really went out of their way to protect themselves from the minority while really making the experience of the XBOX One a complete pain. Sony really rubbed this Fail in their face during the PS4 announcement by basically doing everything oposite of the XBOX One.
Apparently the squeaky gear does in fact get the grease especially when pretty much every gear is squeaking and the machine is about to fall apart and burn. Microsoft heard the outcry and they have changed the DRM policies for the XBOX One.
An internet connection will not be required to play offline Xbox One Games. After a one time system setup with Xbox One, you can play any disc based game without every connecting online again. There is no 24 hour connection requirement and you can take your Xbox One anywhere you want and play your games just like on the Xbox 360.
Trade In, Lend, Resell, Gift, and Rent Disc based games just like you do today. There will be no limitations to using and sharing games. It will work Just as it does today on the Xbox 360.
Is this enough to regain your confidence with Microsoft and the Xbox One or has the decision making damage already been done? If you were gung-ho PS4 after the announcements are you still decided for the PS4 or does this make the decision any more difficult?
