Oh gamers. You crack me up.
Sev  +   818d ago
Yeah, I don't get it either. The gaming public flip-flops more than Microsoft does.
wishingW3L  +   818d ago
because gamers are not a single entity. We all are from different countries, with different cultures and with extremely different ways of thinking.
Kingthrash360  +   818d ago
im beginning to think it ms employees thats doing tge partitioning....and maybe a few xbots.....I just can believe it would be actual gamers that want this.....I smell conspiracy.
Anthotis  +   818d ago
...extremely retarded ways of thinking(@xbox fansboys).
malokevi  +   818d ago
If you take a look, its clear that 80% of respondents are Sony Attack Force trolls.

This is #1 because a bunch of kids are bored on summer vaca. Write-off.

Too bad, because I actually genuinely signed it and gave my opinion, before I realized that I was being drowned out by a bunch of trolls who don't know when to quit.
nukeitall  +   818d ago
I support it so maybe I should sign it.

That's it, I'm signing it!

I hope this gains steam so we can introduce next generation gaming instead of relying on old fashion stone age physical discs.
ArronC07  +   818d ago
70 million XBOX 360's sold, 12,000 sign a petition. You do the math.
solidjun5  +   818d ago
"I support it so maybe I should sign it.

That's it, I'm signing it!"

You're probably the one who started it.
Lvl_up_gamer  +   818d ago
I signed it.
thechosenone  +   818d ago
I just signed it. LOL Lets get that DRM back on the Xbox. xD
omi25p  +   817d ago
I was all for DRM, but i knew the industry wasn't ready for it.

There are still to many people without internet for it to be worth it.
CoolBeansRus  +   817d ago
Do they have a anti-drm petition? Because im pretty sure that would have a lot more than 17k signatures .
SilentNegotiator  +   817d ago
It's mostly hilarious trolls, going by the top comments.

It's Microsoft's fault for taking out the sharing capabilities, not gamers. Gamers just wanted the 24 hour checks gone.

Sounds like a handful of MS fanboys are trying to screw the rest of us gamers.
dark-hollow  +   818d ago
How do we know they are genuine Xbox fans and not random trolls seeing as how any anonymous person can sign?

Going after what raging fanboys did from death threats to developers who supported other consoles, all the way to negative reviews on metacritic.

I won't be surprised, hardcore fanboys are just pathetic like that.
segamon  +   818d ago
rumor has it that these are MS themselves.
n4rc  +   818d ago
Yea.. were out to screw "you" gamers..

Do you have any plans on buying one anyways? Doubt it.. So why would your opinion matter to anyone at ms?

I want those features back to.. And I did sign it.. Everyone seems to have this entitled opinion that what they think is right and those who disagree are wrong..

Just before Xbox One launches, Microsoft announces:

"We've heard the voice of our fans, the true gamers out there, and we've decided to put the 24-hour connection back in! Horray!"
dbjj12088  +   818d ago
"Now everyone go pick up your preorders!"
Rusty515  +   818d ago
No. The month AFTER it launches when everyone has one lol
dark-hollow  +   818d ago
Lol do they really think that will change anything? Do they thought that ms reversed the DRM in first place because they "listened" to us?

The only reason the reverse it was mainly due to the low preorders after the announcement. Our complains only confirmed it to Microsoft that we are pissed.
HammadTheBeast  +   818d ago
It's actually kind of depressing that this is the most active thing on Change.org.
3-4-5  +   818d ago
How do we know it's not just Microsoft paying people to do this.

Then, 2 years from now they use it as "evidence" to justify them bringing it back and say" well you wanted it back".

There is more to this people....keep thinking
Mounce  +   817d ago
I signed it for 'lols'.

I doubt I'd get an Xbox One, so even if this effectively went anywhere? It'd not affect me.
Urusernamesucks  +   817d ago
This proves the Pettition is being mostly signed by ps trolls
Mounce  +   817d ago
Would you honestly think that legitimate people would ACTUALLY sign something that idiotic?

Let alone, no one here can truly say whether or not the creator of this petition itself is a troll.

Cmon. I'm just going with the flow of what's funny, doesn't hurt anyone. No one needs to become stiff and rustled because of something so redundant because this is going nowhere and will be forgotten in no time.
acharlez  +   818d ago
No surprise there.
dbjj12088  +   818d ago
Obviously some people saw the always-online stuff as a benefit, some as a bad thing.... and Change.org is caught in the middle.
ShugaCane  +   818d ago
"This was to be the future of entertainment. A new wave of gaming where you could buy games digitally, then trade, share or sell those digital licenses."

wishingW3L  +   818d ago
and then he says "consumers were uninformed". Wow, talking about delusions....

madpuppy  +   818d ago
This petition is delusional, Did they ACTUALLY BELIEVE that you were going to be able to freely sell trade and share your games like you do now but digitally?!?!

MS was trying to open up a world that never saw a drop in the price of a game and MS authorized buyers of your digital licences would never have given you any more than you get now from gamestop. and they would NEVER allow you to sell or give your game away to a friend, he woud have to pay full price to be able to play it. didn't anybody read how this was going to go down?? when MS finally started telling us how this was going to work, it was even worse than anyone imagined!

There is no one in their right mind signing a petition for this horror show of consumer unfriendly policies unless you are stupid, a paid astroturfer or a MS employee.
HammadTheBeast  +   818d ago
These idiots actually thought that with the family plan you could just give away 9 copies of your game to other people.
madpuppy  +   817d ago

Kudos to you comprehension skills!

I agree with you, there are people out there that only hear what they want to hear and just get upset later when they found out the they were wrong and are stuck with a product with draconian restrictions that costs them an arm and leg to own.
TrendyGamers  +   818d ago
Dlacy13g  +   818d ago
Lord... well if anything good can come from this lets hope it revolves around online sharing and digital games. No way will MS do another 180 on the disc based DRM.
AngelicIceDiamond  +   818d ago
I agree, these people are just wasting there time. If MS listens and somehow implements the restrictions. I'll know who to blame, gamers.
madpuppy  +   818d ago

that's what gamers want, restrictions! that is even better than gameplay!! or graphics!!

AcesHigh291  +   818d ago
A bit ridiculous here.
Wedge19  +   818d ago
Microsoft's fans are now divided like a two party political system, and you can never fully make one or the other happy again.
dbjj12088  +   818d ago
I wonder if Microsoft is just frozen in between all the arguing fanboys.
M-M  +   818d ago
Xbox Fan Party vs Xbox Greenpowerz Party.

True true, I wonder if this will effect there sales?
Lol...who am I kidding, "Of course it will"

dark-hollow  +   818d ago
12000 vs 70 million (or 50-60 million unique owners) is truly "dividing" the fan base..
SignifiedSix91  +   818d ago
Yes, because every xbox owner knows about this petition. Your logic is horrible.
blackmanone  +   818d ago
Either this is Sony Fanboys or MS really does have the dumbest consumers in the world.
dbjj12088  +   818d ago
I feel like it has to be some MS fans, but that the Sony fanboys are adding fuel to the fire.
blackmanone  +   818d ago
Sigh, you're completely right. It's both sides.
Parapraxis  +   818d ago
Yup! and it's hilarious.
I didn't sign it, but oh boy the thread over at Gaf is a riot.
LordMe  +   818d ago
Oh... This is... Wow...
Mr_Nuts  +   818d ago
Bloody idiots...this is why gaming is being ruined, because of people like them
fenixm  +   818d ago
Most gamers have internet 24/24. So is not really a problem. If the internet goes down oh well. I can keep living.
wishingW3L  +   818d ago
the point is not if you're connected or not but that it was a requirement to render your console useless if it wasn't present or if you did something that upset them. They wanted to kill the physical format to then proceed to control everything from their point. You sell a game? Then you sell it through a participant retailer approved by them. That game was no longer yours, you were just renting a license not even buying it.

MS only wanted to control you like a sheep but for some reason some of you guys don't want to see it as it is. This wasn't even near to Steam's level because you still were forced to pay to play online (with must APP under a paywall) and games were going to cost exactly the same, $60. And if Sony had trouble by having a sharing plan of only 5 people then imagine MS with 10... You know they must have had some draconian restrictions under their sleeve for that sharing plan to avoid the issues Sony had.

At the end of the day, MS are masters of marketing and they spin like there is no tomorrow but they still couldn't sell their policies to gamer. Just think about that for a second.

blackmanone  +   817d ago
In fact most gamers do NOT have internet 24/7 (it's not 24/24), in fact most of the ENTIRE world doesn't have internet. 61%, look it up.

Now you can say they're not gamers. How do you know that? Well, I guess you'd be right if Xbox had their way.

The features they cut were cool, but I'll take no DRM over those. People need to stop whining, LEAVE MICROSOFT ALONE !
acharlez  +   818d ago
No DRM = best feature of all!
SpideySpeakz  +   818d ago
...what features? And can you fully explain them? Because MS couldn't even explain their own features they've created.

So what exactly are these 'cool' features?
EXVirtual  +   818d ago
I'm a huge Sony fan, but quite a few of these guys have to be Sony fanboys, which I don't understand, because the PS4 doesn't need any help. LOL. Some of them are definitely just stupid MS fanboys, which just makes me facepalm. This DRM is not the future of console gaming. Sony and Nintendo seem to understand that digital and physical copies can exist side by side. AKA: They get the concept of giving consumers freedom and choices.

EXVirtual  +   818d ago
It is just silly fanboyism but to be honest, I really want MS to get out of the console race at this point. Can't really blame them with that. Lol
Parapraxis  +   818d ago
Nah man, competition is good, but it is hard to look away from a train wreck, thats for sure.

It would be a really weird console future if it was only Sony & Nintendo. Surely somebody else would join in, maybe Apple or Valve.

I do know one thing for sure, this next gen is going to be very interesting.
Galletto3  +   818d ago
It has a lot of trolls signing the petition as well. If you go on the page, the most liked comment is "ill sign to help ps4 so we have no stupid people on the same console as me."

Many others echo similar mocking sentiments.

I just looked at those whom commented and signed the petition; mainly PS Fanboy's:
"I have signed up to make the xbox one shitter", "Fuck MS, Sony FTW"

What the hell is this shit!

Don't worry about the most childish fanboys in the industry. No one can take them seriously lol.

It's not 'pro DRM', it's pro awesome new features at the cost of DRM.

I'd sign it but most of the signatories are just trolling.
SpideySpeakz  +   818d ago
Too bad we never got clarification on what exactly these new 'awesome' features were. MicroSheep just go alone for the ride. MS said it was awesome, so hell, it must have been awesome, right? Because MS said so...
from the beach  +   817d ago
Right, because they're going to want to introduce perceived negative features just to annoy people, offering no gains in return. That makes sense.

You can sign your name, but there's no vote.
g4me_he4d  +   818d ago
I can't believe this, something that was unanimously voted against when it was stealthily announced wants to be reinstated by a few people. At this point words have eluded me, all I can say is wow.

we should make a petition to petition this petition
SynestheticRoar  +   818d ago

Most active doesn't mean it'll work. When will these idiots give up? 12,000 sales VS millions. Yeah Microsoft is real conflicted about who to go with. #Sarcasm.
