I was in for both before the crazy DRM outrage. People love them some discs I guess? lol.

It’ll be funny when 99% of these same people that were outraged are downloading the games at midnight of release anyway and Gamestop sees used game sales drastically decreased.

+1. Today’s announcement appeased what I actually think is a highly vocal minority of internet warriors. A victory for the status quo…..They should just rename these consoles PS3 2.0 and X360 2.0 – because that’s what they are.

Digital distribution is the way forward, and whoever decides to work out a good method of sharing games digitally that helps both consumer and manufacturer, will be onto a winner. It will probably be Valve/Steam that figure this out first.

P.S. I should add that I wasn’t FOR all of the draconian DRM Microsoft wanted to put in (much of which is no different to what Steam offers) – but rather, that a lot of very cool new features were cut because of today’s announcement, which is a shame.

^ i agree, the new consoles only have some extra graphic power but do nothing else go be truly “next gen”. Nowadays innovation appearantly is being able to skype on your tv whilst watching a sports game? Or the newest way to twitter and facebook? :p

Just wait for the steambox :) it wil be legendary and will only improve the awesome system that steam is :)

It might not look so next-gen now, but it will hopefully improve over time. For example, here are the old PS3 launch titles:

They made such a big deal about DRM at their conference, and it just took a bit of a internet backlash for them to cower back to the old format.

Personally I hated the DRM restrictions they talked about, but they just lost my respect by letting the internet push them around.

Since we appear to have such a death-grip on them, lets demand the Xbox 1 also needs to come in 3 colors, and play “the final countdown” when you turn it off.

Microsoft changed policies

“Microsoft reverses ‘always-on’ internet, used game policies for Xbox One” “And you’ll be able to do exactly that. From the site:

An internet connection will not be required to play offline Xbox One games

After a one-time system set-up with a new Xbox One, you can play any disc based game without ever 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 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 Xbox 360. “
