Uhhhh... Ok? I'm assuming that when your IQ 'drops', you still know the info you had before. Are you saying you forget things you've learned?

Okay. I'll try to make a quick summary of what's going on with some additional info:

  • Some people don't mind Microsoft's new policies like the 24-hour online check, but it will deter others.
  • The new Xbox LIVE is similar to Steam, but at least Steam users can disconnect from the internet without worrying whether they can play it or not
  • The dynamics of the PC-games space is a bit different from the console-games space

Did Microsoft expect unlimited complaints? (Not to be rude, I am complaining about the Xbox One too)

Currently Playing: Metroid Prime 3, Zelda Twilight Princess, & Metroid Other M
Hyped for: Sonic Lost World, Super Smash Bros 3DS, & Dream Team

Even though I have beaten many of the games I'm still playing, I play them not to win, but to have fun.

That would be a wise decision on their part. The whole idea of 'leading us' into the future and sticking with their plan would not end well for them.

Not sure how every company manages to screw up their third console..

I think this is the only thing they could do at this point to make me respect the company less. If nothing else, I can in an odd way respect Microsoft's insane ideas. If anything, it'd make them seem less like a parody of business greed if they actually stick with their policies like they actually believe in anything beyond short-term profit. The risk of it is honestly the only thing keeping the Xbox One interesting instead of just a technically worse, more expensive PS4. Though I'm certainly the minority in that case.

You would respect them less for listening to consumer backlash and adopting more consumer-friendly policies?

At least this makes some of your other peculiar philosophies make a little more sense.

Well in one aspect. In many other aspects I wouldn't respect them, but in terms of actually having your own vision despite harsh criticism, I can respect that. On some, odd level. Just in that one though.

Also, because if you think this will lead to some major change for the company and they won't try something so blatantly greedy again, HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA.

No.

As one of the Xbone's harshest critics, them reversing course because of mass criticism is positive for the consumer. There's nothing pathetic at all about embracing a better product.

This is probably the most ironic thing I've ever read coming from you.

Nobody said anything about this, nice try though.

Exactly. They listened to people and changed their course for the better.

Microsoft has changed its policies regarding Xbox One’s internet requirement, used game restrictions and more. Contrary to the details announced earlier this month, Microsoft has now confirmed news originally reported on Giant Bomb that Xbox One will no longer require an internet connection to play offline games or need to check in every 24 hours; instead, internet will only be required when initially setting up the console. Like on Xbox 360, "playing disc based games will require that the disc be in the tray."

Xbox One will also no longer restrict used games, and will instead allow discs to be exchanged in the same way they are on Xbox 360 with no additional restrictions for trade-ins or lending games to friends. The system is also no longer be region locked and all downloaded games will function the same way whether your console is connected or not.

No 24 hour policy, used games and rentals are fine now. These are great things, no matter how people will try to spin this.

Yep good and with that I'll probably be grabbing an Xbox this fall. Sucks they got rid of the awesome sounding game sharing feature, but again the console microsoft wanted is at least ten years in out from being a reality.

WAT!
