no region locking, and unlike PS4?

erh you've made a mistake there as there is no region locking on the PS3, PS4, as far as i know the Wii U & Xbox One are region locked.

It good Microsoft has changed some of it's policys but for some the damage has already been done, 2 of my mates who where hardcore Xboxers are still going to buy a PS4. One of them said after this he'll never support Microsoft again, i don't mind as i can play online with them without having to leave my house now.

Xbox One is region free. Technically PS4 uses some DirectX code, thus he'd be supporting Microsoft by proxy anyway.

No region locking is huge. They were set to not support Poland, which would have caused major backlash from CD Projekt Red fans (of which there are a decent amount..) and of course Polish people. lol

Now they can play The Witcher 3 with the rest of us.

so now that the DRM is no more, what are people going to complain about?

An exclusives library that rivals the Wii U's (same number of games, completely different genres for it), same DRM stance as Wii U (plus no region locking, and unlike PS4, no Publisher-dictated anti-used games DRM support either), etc..

When did they announce online passes wouldn't be allowed?

Also, pirates and terrorist groups in south America that sell counterfeit games are seriously celebrating the news. One more gen they will have a steady income in.

I'm impressed that you apparently have this deep intelligence connection with South American video game-obsessed terrorist groups.

I think, ultimately, this is some sort of victory for gaming in general. There has been such a vocal pushback against DRM that things really do seem to be changing. Nintendo has, obviously, remained pretty the way things have always been, but we just saw Sony reject it at E3 and now even Microsoft is backing away. On the PC front, sites like GOG.com that sell PC games free of DRM are becoming more popular, and there are even rumors that Steam is working on a way to allow you to lend your games to friends and such. All in all, I don't view any of this as a bad thing. Of course, ALL of this is subject to change at any moment, but for the time being, regardless of how you feel about Microsoft, I think this is nice.

I still don't like the Kinect. I also don't don't like how clouded the interface will be with adverts (judging off of how it is for the 360), also £429.

I can probably get over the Kinect in time, I hated motion controls at first but after using Motion Plus controllers and the PS Move, they've significantly grown on me. Kinect could do the same.

The £429 price tag will drop eventually, so that won't be an issue.

However, the adverts on the dashboard are not something I will easily swallow (again). With each subsequent update the 360 received, the amount of ad space on the dashboard increased.
When I'm already paying a premium for service (XBL), I shouldn't have adverts crammed down my throat every time I boot up the console.

All that said, the games are what sell a console to me. If the Xbone has some really great exclusive, I will likely buy one. Just like I did with the 360, PS3, Wii U, PS2, GC, N64, Dreamcast, PS1, SNES, Megadrive and NES before it.
Right now, I'm not seeing much on either side of the fence (Xbone/PS4) that screams "BUY ME!".

This is excellent news. I'm glad to see that Microsoft saw how wildly unpopular its decisions were before it was too late. Now to decide if I'm going to preorder....

I'm still gonna wait it out a bit and see. If something like this could happen, who knows what might happen in the nearly six months between now and release?

This really isn't "great news" at all. Does this really convince you guys to buy their crap all of a sudden? The thing with a, always online connection is that it gives Microsoft complete control over you. There are only disadvantages in an always online system, look at simcity, so why did they want to force it upon us? Purely because Microsoft wants all the power, same goes for not being able to sell your games. Don't fall for their changes all of a sudden now that they realize that you won't buy their console. Once people have bought it, they'll come up with something new to tie you to them. I'm never ever going to buy a console by microsoft again.

Honestly, I probably will wait just to see what games are available in the launch window. I always kinda feel like a sucker buying a system at launch and then getting annoyed at the lack of games.

Does it convince me to buy their system? I don't see why not, since they've reversed the two policies that were keeping me from the system. You can play fortune teller all you want but unless I see something to convince me otherwise I'm back on board.

Wait, are you guys and gals saying that has been better announcements about the Xbox One? I still doubt I'll buy it, since it lacks backwards compatibility and highly-paid online subscriptions.

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

I'll admit it, the lack of backwards compatibility is a bit of a punch to the danglers but I guess I can always just keep my old 360. My living room is going to be sooooooo cluttered.

Microsoft said it was planning to let people connect their 360 to their Xbox One. Not ideal, but it's still better than anything offered by the PS4 backwards-compatibility-wise.
