Microsoft doubles down on Xbox One policies

After Microsoft revealed the Xbox One for the first time last month, the internet swelled with rage. There was information floating around that this console was going to be anti-consumer.

The Xbox One definitely has a very clear goal. And it doesn't include anyone that can't afford to feed Microsoft a lot of money.
