PlayStation 4 fans flock to sign petition demanding return of controversial Xbox One features

The petition is seeking 15,000 signatures and has already accumulated nearly 13,000. However, many of the signatures “supporting” the petition appear to be from PlayStation 4 fans who want the Xbox One to fail. (PS4, Xbox One)

So if wr are against it is bad and if we support it it's also bad?
If this petitioners are dumb enough to come up with this after all that's happened and after saving our way of gaming and not letting this corporation get away with their "futuristic idea, them we might as well help them to see if after the disastrous resolts they understand. Microsoft won't go back to where they were, they know it will fail hardn no matter how many signatures they get 15, 000 - 50, 000 - 100, 000.

@my disagrees.

What are you not agreeing with?
That we don't support it? And btw it wasn't just PS supporters, rhose of us who support the PS4 were going to reserve it no matter what, it was tbe Xbox supporter who made the jump and show it with their wallet. The ones who didn't say anything about it and thought it was something good were thr hardcore xbox fanboys that no matter how much MS screws up they don't say crap! And those are the minority!!! So no, the 180 was not because of PS suporters. The pre-orders were very clear to Microsoft and they understood that not all of their costumers are dumb.

So what are the disagrees for? Would you care to explain?

"It doesn't matter how many people sign that, MS won't bring it back, at least not for now"

Exactly. That's why it's funny. Microsoft didn't end the DRM because of online petitions; they did it because pre-orders were bad and press was worse.

The petition is a parody (or at least, became a parody because the idea is so unpopular). No one is trying to "fool" Microsoft into bringing it back. Gamers have spoken and they are speaking again; we do NOT want DRM.

They disagree because anything and everything bad ms does or is perceived of doing is some how the fault of sony fans.
First I am a sony fan have never will never sign anything that has to do with drm reversal.
Secondly the petition makes false claims as to why the drm was a good thing.
Finally if anyone is behind this it is ms executives that never wanted to remove it in the first place.
ShinMaster  +   644d ago
It was XBOX fans themselves who wanted those features announced at E3 back, such as the Family Share plan.
Whatever the top comments said is not proof that those votes belong to PS fans. The majority are from XBOX fans.

Exhibit A: http://n4g.com/news/1307522...

Even here on N4G, there were XBOX fans defending those policies and even complained when Microsoft reversed their policies because it removed those features. I'm sure it's not the DRM they want back, but the features.

It's just funny that whenever Microsoft messes up somehow Sony and PlayStation fans are to blame and be hated on.

As a playstation fan, I was against the policies, I'm glad they removed them, I would never sign a petition that brought them to any console.
MS went about there idea the wrong way, they should have done a better job showing all the positives, but there mouth pieces stumbled every chance they had. MS is solely to blame for there recent struggles, but the XB1 has sold out most places you can pre order them, and a majority of those orders came after the policies were removed.
My guess is PS4 wins the next gen, but that being said at this point don't count MS out, they have massive marketing planed I'm sure... Even Nintendo can claim victory if they start marketing the damn Wii U

Please actually read my comment rather than disagreeing just because of the first sentence.

DRM was NOT a stupid idea.

People who didnt actually understand it thought it was stupid.

Games would be available to people on your friends list any were in the world.

Games would be constantly updated and while you play the game the CLOUD would have been streaming more details into the gaming world.

Developers would have made more money out of games and which in turn would push up the quality of games.

Now what i didnt agree with is how difficult they made it to trade in games. But honestly with the whole family sharing thing i don't think it would have been an issue.

BUT. While i personally thought it was a good idea. I also don't think it should be done this generation.

While the majority of people in the richer areas on the planet such as parts of Europe and America have the ability to have a constant internet connection. There is still more people who don't have this ability.

I think anyone who is complaining about all the features on the DRM X1 either don't understand what it would have actually meant for gaming or is simply hating for the sake of hating

But i also agree with people complaining about the fact they simply wouldn't have been able to play it.

MICROSOFT did a truly terrible job explaining the real important's of the DRM features.

I think if they had shown us right off the bat why DRM would have truly been worth the restrictions. Such as doing demonstrations showing games running with and without the cloud. So we could see how much better the game looked.

They should have demonstrated the Family sharing at their E3 conference.

The only time we ever really heard of the features that made the DRM worth the effort was when they announced it was removed.

Overall. DRM would have been amazing, If the world was ready for it and IF Microsoft had done a better job introducing and explaining it.

"People who didnt actually understand it thought it was stupid.

That's EXACTLY why it was a stupid idea. You're not outdoing piracy or used sales by making EVERY copy of the game available to 10 people.
Furthermore, Microsoft even told us; if you can't connect every 24 hours, get an Xbox 360. That would have left lots of gamers in the cold.

If you want an Xbox that doesn't tank in sales and lose innumerable amounts of support, let it GO.
Microsoft is not even SELLING that kool-aid anymore, so stop trying to drink it.

CKsquid  +   645d ago

You say they should have shown the difference the cloud makes in game? You know why they couldn't show that?
Because the cloud doesn't work like that. You have been sucked up by the dribble Microsoft have been coming out with to defend their precious x1.

If you want better looking games go for the more powerful console, the ps4.
BISHOP-BRASIL  +   645d ago

Was it people who didn't understand or people who won't blindly follow MS that thought it was stupid?

You said yourself, MS never were clear about their plans... You are the one counting on family plan being about sharing full games, that cloud can visibily enhance games or that devs will somehow make more money... MS itself? They never showed any of it. Don't commit MS's mistake of assuming that everyone who don't share your vision is just too dumb to follow the idea... If anything, you are the one accepting this stuff with no evidence whatsoever.

Oh, we understand DRM, even more than you apparently, afterall MS backtrack... They could of had stick with this awesome plan you are imagining and show us all the advantages, November is still quite far away, but no, they backtracked. Looks like MS had squat all along and this gamers saving master plan never was, it was just another bait-and-switch gone bad, now you don't have to bend over your costumer rights just to play some games, you're welcome.
N2NOther  +   644d ago

DRM, is a stupid idea because DRM has no advantages to the consumer. Please don't delude yourself into thinking any of it was for the consumer. It was to control all sales of games by funneling used sales through the hoops MS had planned for.

DRM and cloud computing had nothing to do with eachother.

You say what the family share plan would have been like. How do you know? Did MS reveal it in detail in private? They had every opportunity to show that. When they first revealed the console they didn't even mention it in any of the press follow ups. Not a one. If this was a real feature they would have explained it in detail. Did it ever occur to you that they didn't really have anything to properly explain?

And lastly, why on Earth would any rational, logical human being reach the conclusion that a company that was choosing where you could sell your games, dictating whom you could give you game away to and limiting that action to ONE TIME would be OK with you sharing ONE game with 10 people without any restrictions?

It makes no sense because A) it was not real or B) it had heavy restrictions that go beyond playing one at a time.

DRM - restricting the owners rights - will never be amazing. Making a concession is the furthest thing from it.

edgeofsins  +   644d ago

PS4 lets you share disc based games as expected and you can still log in on your account on another persons PS4 and download and play your games with your account.

MicroSoft just doesn't compromise for the consumer. They compromised for themselves. If they couldn't control shared games they could control your account access more.

PS4 does the updating while playing a game. It isn't any sort of advanced online system required for that. Just a server.

Developers would have made more money? No proof behind that. Sharing a game itself with someone will make them want to buy the game just as much as someone not getting to borrow your game will make them want to buy it. Sometimes less or more.

You don't understand family sharing.

The fact you thought X1 would have been like Steam was to PC gaming just voids your words. PS+ is an example of Steam-like features for a console. Great deals for games. Not to mention you can play plenty f2p games on PS4. Not to mention all the indie support on PS4.

I thought the extreme fanboyism of these man-children was long gone since 2008, but nope!
We're all fanboys here, we like to talk crap about competitors and praise our own consoles, or at least you have a little bias towards your company, but to go to such lengths to sabotage other people's own choices by spoiling games or doing ridiculous petitions like this one is truly the worst kind!

You people jump too conclusion and said Microsoft is about tv tv tv no game's at a console reveal right? You completely writen them off u ps3 fanboys...soo when e3 comes around they showed games games more game's that was their focus did say one word about tv and Microsoft delivered on the game department!!!! But yet sony started their conference boringly talking about tv ps vita nobody cares about tv stuff that Microsoft was getting flamed for because they didn't show games at a console reveal lol but its ok for sony too talk tv and get away with it lmfao that's the funny part and their exclusive that they shown barely had gameplay and u ps3 fanboys declared sony e3 winners because they attack Microsoft for their drm policy...that was funny. .....but they changed it took it away and ps4 fanboys still said it Sucks lol now this news pop up about ps4 fanboyish secretly acting like xbox fans soo that Microsoft goes back too their drm stuff again wtf is that???? Who does that??? This fanboy war needs too stop I was seconds away from pre ordering both consoles but ima stick too the xbone because I like what I see....and Im afraid that playing on the p ps4 all im going too hear is how much the xbone sucks instead of having a discussion about the games we're playing now lol omfg writing all this from a mobile phone sucks -__-

You got disagrees because you generalized an entire group of people because of the actions of a few trolls. Sure, they might have even been trolls from the Playstation camp. But, that doesn't justify the hatred toward ALL PS3 gamers.
As for your other comments, the gaming community in general was far from impressed by the Xbox reveal...even Xbox fans. They wanted to see games. E3, MS did well and brought games but they still had the albatross of DRM around their necks and Sony took advantage of that moment. Don't hate the player...hate the game on that. It's just good business. Now that DRM is gone, the consoles are more or less on an equal playing field. However, consumers are wary of MS because of what they tried to do in the first place. This is not just PS4 fanboys either. That is why pre-orders are still lagging behind expectations.
You gotta relax a little. This is about GAMES..not LIFE or DEATH. Nobody is threatening you or your future with MS, SOny, Nintendo, whatever. MS is not going to look at a petition of a few (15K is a few in comparison to 70 Million plus) and change anything. It's just dumb ass internet trolls doing what they do. Oh, and rest assured that there is just as much talk about Xbox on PS3 as there is about PS3 on Live...probably not much unless one of those trolls pops his ugly head out from under the bridge.

This isn't a bash at PC gamers but your comment sounds like one from the mind of a PC gamer. Just remember that ''piece of plastic'' is the reason we have so many great games to play and why more and more money is being put into developing gaming as a form of entertainment, never forget that the majority of games are made using PC's.....for consoles.

It would be worse for gaming that' s a fact. Not only would there be less alternative so Sony could do whatever it wants, and you'd have no choice, but there would also be less games. Maybe you didn't know, but without MS, you wouldn't have had Killzone or Resistance (created to compete with Halo), as well as Uncharted (which originally was going to be a fantasy platformer, but Sony changed it after seeing the response from Gears of war). Im sure there are more but you get the point.

Great idea Muffuns1223. As for competition, last time I checked Nintendo won the current generation. Even if they don't sell another console! IF Microsoft left the business (which is wishful thinking) we would have these companies jump in that are looking at it anyway. Google, apple, Samsung, Nokia! Just to name a few. It would be a lesson for all the companies to come. Don't blank with our rights! Only 25% are blind fools.

Oh and the Playstation fanboys acted like a-holes to everybody during the PS2 era. Karma's a bitch indeed.

Why are you guys such douchebags? Yes, there are people like that in every camp, but there are vast numbers in the Playstation camp. Why?

Why are you guys constantly hating on everything else? You bash the PC, you bash the Wii, you bash the Xbox. You're just awful.

I mostly game on the PC, but the PS3 is my next most favorite platform and I plan to only get a PS4. But why do I not see very many Nintendo or Microsoft fans bashing the PC? Why do more of them seem to understand that different people have different tastes and needs? You Sony fanboys seem to think that everybody must think like you, and there is no room for anything else. Just shameful.

Even as a PC gamer I think this is low, and I do play PS3 a lot. Don't do that, I want to own an Xbox One (when it cost what its worth and doesn't have a camera bundled in). This is really low.

andrewsqual  +   644d ago
So from just the title an snippet of information above this article is saying that anybody who wants the Xbox One to have forced DRM and always online crap want it to fail?
Wow that paints a pretty picture of Microsoft, the people who wanted these features as standard LOL.

What happened to the original "to each their own" Sony fanboy. This is absolutely ridiculous.

Maybe they did, but WHO CARES. This stupid petition isn't gonna do crap for anybody. MS did a 180 because of horrendous preorders not consumer and media backlash. If they really were confident in their original plan they would have stuck with it.

Not surprising at all. Next up will be a petition from the other side asking for extra DRM practices on the PS4. It's sad that the consumers are a lot of the time just as silly as the big bad companies.
DxTrixterz  +   645d ago
This is one of the comments from the petition's site

I love restrictions. I want always online DRM. I want the game rental business to become obsolete. I don't want to let my friends borrow games, because f*** them. All I care about is my god damn new age console that'll blow everything else out of the water! F*** the PS4 and f*** those Sony guys for catering to fans who care about their gaming experience. F*** PC, that s*** is stupid. Steam? F*** that s***. They never have sales or anything. It's not as affordable as buying my games from the XBL marketplace. I love Microsoft and their business practices will be the best forever. F*** yes. <3 Xbox.

I do not remember when I had such a laugh last time where I couldn't breathe because of laughing.

I think DRM should be optional. People should be given the choice. The pro's & the cons. Just having MS jumping extremes really isn't a professional way of dealing with their vision (or lack of).
DRM or no DRM should be your choice.

That is sad, but don't say Xbox fans wouldn't do the same because they would.

Am I going to go do it because in getting a ps4 and anot an x1? Hell no there are some things I like about the x1 but there just happens to be way more negatives than positive to me but that don't mean I'm gonna go that far.

Play games for games not a brand
theWB27  +   645d ago
Guess what..xbox fan aren't doing this. They could have started a silly petition when the X1 was initially getting bashed in the media. Wouldn't that have been a good time to start a petition to change the bad press it received?

So wait a minute.......

I thought that "PS4 fans" made the petition demanding to have those features removed from the Xbone. Than when they removed those features "PS4 fans" were glad because they were under the impression that "the future of gaming is saved". At that time "Xbone fans" were upset and were claiming that the feature removed was revolutionary and they would take that game sharing over used games any day of the week and the dumb "PS4 fans" screwed it up for them.

.........and now "PS4 fans" make another petition asking for the functions back that "Xbone fans" actually loved and were sad to see go??????????

Something isn't right here dudes.
Jakens  +   645d ago
I disagree.
Karpetburnz  +   645d ago
Very true, Xbox fans seemed very upset when those features were removed, and blamed Sony fans for it, but now they're accusing Sony fans of of starting a petition to bring those features back and they're still complaining lol, what is it Xbox fans? Do you want those features or not?

I certainly haven't been a part of this petition, because I believe that DRM isn't good for the future of gaming in general.

It is a bit sad of that there can't really be any doubt. What's interesting is this is a tiny minority anyway and it's one that should be a little concerned where the game's industry is heading- all of it dictated by this now much larger audience that is quite separate from 'core gamers'

Sony themselves are aware of this direction but would rather not admit it just yet for fear of causing upset amongst the vocal

Hicken  +   645d ago
I wouldn't sign it. As I've said multiple times before, I don't want anybody to deal with that crap.

Though, apparently, I don't really mean that because I don't care about Microsoft or the XBOne. Right, MikeMyers? I can't have fundamental problems with something that affects the whole industry just because I don't like the company that's making the mistakes, right?

No, I don't like it, and I hope this petition fails. But, looking around here at some of the MS trolls, it almost seems as if the only way people will really understand how bad this was going to be is if it DOES come to pass.

That would suck, though.

GusHasGas  +   645d ago
I am a PS4 fan and yes, I signed it so that the Xbox One can do poorly.


Btw, even if the petition reaches its goal, Microsoft won't change their minds. They don't care about the fans (as we've learned).

At least you are honest with your insecurity and fear of the X1. It very pathetic but its actually more sad.

You are the fan i say sony has that isnt good. You cant be happy with what sony gives you you can only be happy if the competition isnt making their customers happy. Its a sickness.

Besides the ONE isnt going to fail no matter how hard you pray, hustle and scam. MS has a big enough base to ride out any bumps along the way and the ONE out guns the Ps4. When the system hit the real world if they both deliver what they say MS will crush the Ps4.

This is right sad - I've always preferred the PlayStation consoles to the others (although I've often had some of the others as well, and currently have a PS3, 360 and PC), but I want _all_ gamers to have a good time, no matter what platform they're on.

I have no idea if I'll eventually get an XB1 or not (will depend on their exclusives, and it wouldn't be for a few years) but I was still saddened by MS' ham-fisted reveal and approach because I know millions of gamers will get an XB1, and I sure as hell want them to have a good time.

I think friendly competition between the systems is healthy (spurs innovation, helps encourage new ideas), similar to a friendly sporting rivalry, but I wouldn't want Microsoft to disappear in gaming any more than I would want a 'nemesis' football club to stop playing. I also wouldn't want things to go all 'soccer violence' either. Don't sabotage the XB1, because if you do you're sabotaging gaming.
