See, this is why Microsoft is bad for the industry. Their stupid moves dreamed up by non-gamers create the biggest, most intellectually deficient fanboys I've ever come across in my life. Don't know what I'm talking about? Well just go to these two links and proceed to weep for humanity.
Can you see that the first petition has 250 signatures at the writing of this blog? The second one currently has 25.
275 people currently WANT DRM, they want the old consumer rights destroying Xbox One. They want the console that won't work without an internet connection. They want the console that gave the biggest middle finger to military personnel and every country without American internet.
Why? Because they bought Microsoft's line about the Xbox One being "The Future."
How can anyone in their right mind think taking control away from consumers is A GOOD THING?
"We want discless playing from disc games."
Which still exists but isn't mandatory. Xbox 360 has optional full disc installs. What makes you think Xbox One, which is supposedly the future, won't?
"We want family game sharing."
You want to be able to share 45 minute demos with 10 "family" members who will then have to buy the game after that 45 minutes?
"We want access to play our games on any Xbox One console."
Which you can still do. It's called bringing the disc with you.
"We want a console of the future, not an Xbox 360 on steroids."
None of those "features" are new or features of "the future." What they are is the confiscation of consumer rights and potentially the inability to allow the console to perform its basic function if you don't have a working network connection.
"We don't care if we have to check-in online once every 24 hour."
Because you're an idiot. You'll care when your connection fails at the appointed check in time and your console becomes useless until the connection is fixed.
"But thanks for making it region free. We DON'T want to change that!"
Oh, so region locking was where you drew the line? What? So you'll allow Microsoft to tell you what you can do with your own physical games, tell you that your console won't work without a network connection (or Kinect), and tell you that you can share gameplay demos that your "family" will eventually be told to buy, but region locking is a no no?
The existence of these kinds of people is enough to induce an immediate migraine. This is the audience Microsoft are after, and this is the audience Microsoft will target once they get the pesky, yet vocal, core gamers silenced by their paltry and likely short-lived core game support.
Imagine, there are people out there who are telling a company "We want you to take control away from us. We want you to tell us what to do with our money and our property."
Ladies and Gentlemen, Xbox One fanboys.
