"We're as platform-agnostic as you can possibly get"

I just had to laugh at this. Here I was thinking MS was the king of BS.

i see so many people defending the drm situation with the xbox one and i just dont understand. fanboys are such sheep

Last time i let my friend borrow a game he "lost it".

@ AutoCAD

So the solution to that is have your rights removed then? Yeah seems legit/s

My Xbox is always connected anyway.

Something that all the Sony fanboys are forgetting. 10 people can play my game from my games library, I don't have to "loan" the game, its already there for my "friends/family" to play.

No more standing at line at midnight for a game either. Just sit in my chair, download it and play....sounds awesome.

Yeah you can share it up to 10 people but IN your house if I'm not mistaken. I don't think Microsoft wants you to be giving your game to other people outside your house."

You are mistaken, and that's the problem people aren't reading what Microsoft is actually putting out, just what their friends are saying. Don't get me wrong Microsoft is doing a horrible job of getting the message out there. But no you don't have to be in the same house you can be "3,000 miles away"

Please explain to me how a system would work without DRM with the features Xbox One provides.

- installing all games to hard drive for instant access and instant switching between games. No getting up to swap discs.

- accessing any and all your games from any Xbox One

- lending games to friends without ever going to their house.

I'm not saying I like DRM but I just don't see how it can be eliminated with these features in place.

I think once people actually get their hands on the console and start experiencing these features and how convienient they are, the system will build up steam and will sell well.

@deathofsouls
Can u provide a detailed link about the game sharing Xone provides?
I would be interested in seeing all the details,also do you know if its like ps3 where you can activate another console with your account and now that console can access all content that u purchased but with other accounts on the same console or is it you have to be logged into the content owners account to access?

This is not the best, but I just did a quick search and found this one for you.

Lets just think about how great this is....put the console war behind us for one sec. I can buy a game and up to ten of my friends can play it, at their house, as long as only one person is playing at a time. What if all 10 of my friends buy 10 different games....Funk buying/selling used games...who would need to?!?!

If that is how it really will work you can count me in.

Will have to wait and see.

@deathofsouls
thx bro

okay just read the article and sounds great im really considering an xbox purchase now with ps4 and that policy is perfect for singleplayer games but im still on a wait and see after launch to test it out if some of my friends get it first but either way its good to see something positive out of all this controversy for the xone

"We are proud to announce our unprecedented partnership with EA..."

GribbleGrunger1645d ago

Yes, they're trying to distance themselves from this whole mess but it won't work.

R_aVe_N1645d ago

They know how it will effect game with DRM after all they have a partnership with Microsoft now. I think that DRM is the primary reason they did the partnership to begin with. Sony DRM is the same as with the PS3 so they already know how it will effect it on the PS4 as well. They see the backlash on DRM right now and they are trying to stay as far away as possible publicly anyways, but behind the scenes they are the Microsoft band wagon.

GraveLord1645d ago

PS4 doesn't have DRM. Don't put the PS4 on Microsofts sinking ship.
