You're too late. The PS3 already did that. All of it.

Actually I think we should all band together and tell Microsoft we demand DRM re-installed on the XboxONE just to fuck with them

That would be pretty great. Someone should get a KickStarter going for that. Because KickStarters always work.

I couldn't agree more, this is so fantastic news!
Today gamers from all consoles should be happily united, because ultimately this will help customers of all consoles.

This has shown that loud protest against policies we hate really works, and that even the most hardcore Xbox fans should not just swallow and even defend all of Microsoft's decisions, no matter how much they actually hate them.



Around the Network

your welcome. now Xbox gamers can go buy an Xbox 180 and not feel like they're getting screwed (personal opinion)

I'd also like to personally thank the Sony fans for kindly pointing out to M$ the boneheaded decisions they made, and allowed them to make the necessary corrections before the console was even launched.... thereby eliminating 2 of the 3 advantages that their beloved PS4 had over the X1 heading into launch (the other being price, on which I will bet M$ will also do some adjusting as well prior to launch).

What was that old saying about not interrupting your enemy when they are making a mistake again?

Well, now when the PS4 wins, Sony fans won't have to hear MS fans excuses.  "But it was the DRM and used games policy that didn't allow the One to sell to its full potential."  So, it'll be a fair fight from the beginning. 

Of course, Sony still has price, better PR, no mandatory camera, and better supply going in its favor.



Thanx sony fans :)

The no mandatory camera is the only actual advantage I see there... good luck finding a bare-bones $399 SKU at launch that isn't automatically bundled with other crap.

The "better PR" point is completely up for debate because up until about 2-3 years ago Sony was getting their asses handed to them in the PR department.  This little DRM snafu has only been going on for a few weeks now, and will be all but forgotten at launch... Sony is still smarting from the nightmare that was "five hundred and ninety-nine US dollarz".

Supply is also something that's debatable because Sony has to deal with supply for 3 major regions, while M$ only really has to deal with two since the Japanese are too xenophobic to buy a videogame console not made by a Japanese company, and which doesn't feature a healthy library of JRPGs, remakes of old JRPGs, dating sims, and JRPGs.

You know I was always wondering why no one ever used the dollar sign for $ony, but then I realized they have no money so it would be pointless.

If only microsoft advertised the advantages of family sharing and having your profile library available to you everywhere you go then the internet would see what in words werent enough to having people saying "this is innovation".
Now thanks to the gaming community those features are out and one of the reasons for purchasing an xbox instead of ps4 is also out of the window .
