Microsoft Does a U-turn and Drops the Xbox One Restrictions!

Microsoft have seemingly listened to the fans and decided to completely scrap the planned restrictions regarding the Xbox One console. That means that an internet connection every 24 hours will NOT be required, and therefore nobody will get locked out of their games if their internet connection fails. Gamers will also be free to do with their games as they wish - they can sell / trade with no restrictions whatsoever, and lending / borrowing games will not be an issue.

Full statement here: http://news.xbox.com/2013/06/update

They'll just wait for a couple of years until everybody has one, then they'll do it........

Or they wait for everyone to buy one, then release a patch a few months down the road reverting everything back. Sure wouldn't put it past them, lol.

Can't decide which one I want. When Xbox had the restrictions, I was leaning toward ps4. Now Idk.

Re: Microsoft Does a U-turn and Drops the Xbox One Restrictions!

Fucking idiots if you ask me. I'm not saying this because I like Sony way more, but how could Microsoft be so stupid? Always online and no ability to buy, sell, or borrow used games?

The guy that posted to statement is a complete douche bag and still won't admit they were idiots. Sony should have everyone's vote for the next-gen in gaming.

I was always getting both, but the PS4 is my top priority.

Re: Microsoft Does a U-turn and Drops the Xbox One Restrictions!

It's good that they reverse their ideas.

Microsoft was basically trying to double dip on game sales. They wanted to charge full pop for the game upfront and then charge again to resell the same game.

That's bullshit, they already received full pay for that product once.

If they want to cut out places like GameStop then they should create their own used game stores.
