How Microsoft can fix their image

It will be an interesting few months leading up to the November launch of the Xbox One and PlayStation 4. Sony is in the driver’s seat right now, with Microsoft being dragged by the car Sony is driving. If Microsoft plays its cards correctly, they can turn this PR nightmare around. Unfortunately I have a feeling Microsoft will rest on their laurels and expect people to flock to the Xbox One just because of the name, and it could be Microsoft’s biggest mistake this generation.

Disable Kinect so that it doesn't need to be plugged in.

Do Away with online check-in.

Don't impose used game control.

There, fixed.

Agree. Kinect IF I want it. Not required.

First, get rid of the confusing and unneeded DRM policies for physical copies of games. Instead make digital distribution more attractive through earlier releases and lower prices. By making digital distribution attractive it will become the primary market for games, making the online requirement and 24 hour check-ins become unneccesary. Second, make Kinect an option that can be unplugged and release a lower priced sku without Kinect. Third, admit you were wrong and apologize to your core fan base.

Get rid of DRM, get rid of the NSA spycam...aka Kinect.

Simple stuff.

Explain to me WHY I should make sacrifices and WHY I the cloud and always on will benefit me.

Actually talking to us and explaining everything would help. Or they should just make the actual sequal to the 360; a console aimed at gamers, not this wider, harder-to-capture market.
