Forums - Microsoft Discussion - Microsoft to Pull Complete Reversal on Xbox One DRM Policies..

If true, Microsoft fans should thank us Sony fans for fighting for their rights ;o

In all seriousness, how can they change it so quickly if the whole hardware is built around DRM as I've heard?


yes i will thank every sony fan if true :D

Things are moving way faster than I thought.

After hearing what I heard yesterday I thought MS was in massive trouble but if they reverse these policies. ....there still may be hope for them yet.


you really need to pm me what you know, it is driving me nuts!



The damage has already been done though. Wouldn't this make them look even worse? Just a few days ago they were saying how always-connected is the future. It's ridiculous how much of a mess the Xbox One is at the moment.

It's a win for gamers if true though.



So was a hifi website the first one to mention it or ign, seems very strange if it was a hifi sigh.

I would be very surprised if this was the case, it would be a massive turnaround if so. If they truly believe in their cloud/system and their so called future proof system, then why change. If they did it would suggest they were wrong.

This is so fake lol...

Yeah, it's not like they didn't expect these reactions, they got them all at their reveal event, there is no way that they are going to reverse this

It just doesn't align with Microsofts overall strategy to reverse this...like at all. Apple and Android will rape them sideways few years from now if they don't go all digital.

They don't need to force digital, everybody is trending that way anyways with bigger and bigger hard drives, which is exactly what made this whole thing silly to begin with.

I'll believe it when more sites or MS make the same anouncements. Right now I suspect some traffic generation tactics :



You guys hoping they dont change are out of your minds.
Ive seen the numbers. If MS dont change strategy immediately the "console race" for next gen is already over. It appears MS may have seen them and come to the same conclusion.

IF this is true.



Good if true. Hopefully such thoughts wont come again in the future by anyone else.

If it does or if this rumor is untrue. R.I.P. Gaming industry.

I think they can compete fine by giving people the option to go all digital, but I am odd, I like their strategy as it gives the advantage of digital and allows me to keep a nice collection. I buy PC games physically then enter the codes on steam

hopefully that's a load of crap.... I want to not have to use disc at all.... I want to be able to share games through the cloud without bringing my disc.... I want Kinect to be standard so it's more relevant....

some of where actually happy with what those policies and choices would enable.... an all digital world always connected with voice and movement control as a standard


All, game releases on PS4 and XB1 will be digital day one if you want all that buy digital.
