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

Because?

I said a while back that when there were rumors that I would have some respect for Microsoft on some level if they went through with this stuff.

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.

The sharing feature isn't too bad of a sacrifice though. Only one person could play at a time anyway, so unless you're continuously swapping games with a friend across the country, its not much greater than just swapping discs.

Besides, they knew that would be exploited by people just adding other random people. It would have been regulated a lot more than they were letting on.

In addition to this, the only other 'positive' offered by MS for the always-online thing was cloud services, which can just as well be optional. Plus this guarantees they can't tell us to screw ourselves when they shut down their servers and we want to play single player games. All around great news.

I still won't get one at launch in spite of their initial stubbornness, but I'm much more likely to pick one up later on down the road though.

I would now consider X1 later in the future after a healthy price drop. They've done wonders today.

I think the military bad press is what solidified the decision.

Its so freaking crazy how they could have just announced this last week and Won E3.

Its also Region Free meaning Nintendo is the odd one out on that front. (and oddly enough their the only ones with a Japan only game I want currently in DQX)

And they're back in the game. Still more expensive, but arguably a better line up of exclusives than PS4.

" just hope the internet doesn't perceive this as Microsoft giving a **** about people wanting to play offline all of a sudden. They clearly thought that after showing off their selection of games at E3 the internet would change its views and when nothing changed they decided to pull a 180 as fast as possible to save what little positive PR they have left. If Microsoft truly cared about consumers then they would've removed this DRM back when the rumors started to surface about this always online MONTHS ago."

Anyways, I'm glad that they did all this. I'm still not buying the thing, but at least the future looks much brighter.

Actually, I just realized the reason I'm disappointed (the other reason is just the first thing that came to mind).

This is less of a ridiculously fun train-wreck. BOO! :(

Nintendo's problems aren't as fun either.

Microsoft wanted this weird console that was going to push digital only, but were no where near ready for that. All digital works for somethings (phones, computers, but not things like games.

I comletely understand why microsoft is doing this, that said I don't really care because well games.

Alrighty, looks like there might be hope for Microsoft after all. Still have a ways to go, though.

Nice to see they finally figured it out. Good decision. The online connection during setup is weird, but I have good internet anyways. This will save the Xbox One from its formerly inevitable doom.

You don't even need good internet if all you're doing is set-up, I'd imagine.

Wow, Microsoft finally deduced that all the complaints over the past month probably meant that people weren't going to buy their system. Good job Microsoft, I still have no interest in your $500 tv remote.

That is true, and also the Amazon poll I believe was the final straw.

Still not buying that stupid console.

yeah I honestly didn't care about the new Xbox even without the DRM nonsense or whatever. SONYLIFE and all that. All this did for me is make the Xbox a fun clusterfiretruck and the internet more entertaining. Now it's just boring again, if with a better exclusive lineup than I would have predicted.
