Call me when it will be revised. Might isn't good enough.

Think that's something indie devs have to say. And for MS to wait too late for the negative effects the more vocal ones are voicing.

"Alright we know this is wrong, but we want to wait to hear enough negative feedback to change it."

Exactly. They keep doing this stuff they know is bogus, but that think lets just see if we get away with it. If theres no backlash then they dont change it. Well push it as far as we can and then back off if we push too far.

I know Xbone defenders think everyone who hates Microsoft is a Sony fanboy, but you can thank the people that spoke up for what Xbone is now. Their policies wouldnt just have affected future XB owners, its would have affected the whole industry if they got away with it and Xbone would be a completely different machine if not for "the haters".

Oh man, don't say that.

They were waiting for their totally feasible family share, the totally realistic competitive prices of digital content, and an all digital future that is still actually possible without all the restrictions if you buy your games digitally, regardless of the fact that ISPs still don't have the capacity or infrastructure to support a digital-only, always-on future at this point in time. This was all worth the horrible anti-consumer practices supposedly. And this is no different.

But you're right, at this point Microsoft defenders don't care about who this affects, as long as it makes Microsoft money and they can boast about how many billions they have as a corporation.

More like they're waiting on the general popularity of their console. Whether or not they can say to devs "we've got the #1 system, so you have to do as we say" or "We're not doing so good, what do we have to do to kiss your @$$".

Pretty much this. The more consoles MS sells, the more they can bargain and bully from a position of strength.
