Is better than what, sorry? Although you were unspecific, I assume you mean the PS4?

That's totally irrelevant to what this article is about. This isn't about which console is better and why, it's about why the Xbox One has helped change publisher and manufacture's views on DRM.

Saying 'Xbox One is better' or 'PS4 is better' to this article is as relevant as posting the same thing on an article about sandwiches.

He/she may be saying that the Xbox is better now due to MS removing the DRM feature.

Check out the guys username again. It's pretty obvious he's here to troll. Thanks N4G for re-bubbling all the trolls

Sony is going to dominate this generation...

Please explain how Xbox One is better? Because the PS4 is cheaper, more powerful, better looking hardware, better controller. And don't forget that Sony have incredible 1st party devs that M$ can't get anywhere near, such as Naughty Dog and Sony Santa Monica e.g. God of War, Uncharted, The Last Of Us... all Playstation exclusives. Plus Sony nurtures and welcomes indie devs with open arms, wheareas indie devs have to jump through hoops for M$. So... in conclusion, how is Xbox One better?

This is a great point and will be remembered long down the road like the Saturn launch debacle and the PS3 initial price point. Companies that listen and learn make us gamers winners in the end.
