Some 'Splainin' To Do: Seriously!? Wow, I didn't realize how unironic your sarcasm was.
eddievercetti: Again, has he made anything of relevance lately?
ajgeek: That was slower than I anticipated. I thought they'd reverse a couple weeks ago.Q: Will Xbox One allow players to trade in, purchase and play pre-owned games?A: We are designing Xbox One to enable customers to trade in and resell games. We'll have more details to share later.This particular FAQ is hilarious. "Designing" indeed.
wuma: Why so mad? This might actually increase sales for a system people ran away from.
Virtual Pariah: Witty_Retort: Question: What about before they said you installed the game then could throw the disk away? Will you now have to keep the disk to play it?Seems like the disc is going to go back to being the key.
eddievercetti: Still 100 bucks more expensive and still needs the Kinect to play. Fark off Don.I'll stick with PS3 XBox 360 and Steam. PS4 Steambox as soon as available.
change1211: Mangoose: "Xbox One hardware is not compatible with Xbox 360 games. We designed Xbox One to play an entirely new generation of games-games that are architected to take full advantage of state-of-the-art processors and the infinite power of the cloud. "That's some mighty fine bullshiat you got there.The PS4 isn't backwards compatible either, you should try to not talk about things you don't know anything about.
Mike_LowELL: wuma: Why so mad? This might actually increase sales for a system people ran away from.You know why Microsoft called it the Xbox One? Because in five years, all the billions of Xbox Ones were going to merge to form the singularity. The human era would have ended, and now it will not, because "the Xbox One is a terrible product". Congratulations.
Cytokine Storm: Way to ruin holodecks for the rest of us, Sonyboys. Microsoft was the future, now it's over.This is worse than 9/11, Hitler, Stalin and Obama all put together.
FormlessOne: They are lying to you.They realize that they won't be able to move hardware, so they've changed their policy - for now. Just wait. Once they hit their sales targets, it won't take much to change those policies back to something a bit more restrictive - and by that time, you've dropped your money on the Xbox One instead of the PS4, so you're now "stuck" with their more oppressive policies.After all, it was easy enough to do an about-face, even as their PR folks laughed at you for protesting. Nothing stops them from doing another about-face once they've sold enough folks on the hardware.
FlashHarry: behold the power of social media.the always-on camera is still spooky though.
Stone Meadow: BTW, has anyone nominated Subby for Headline of the Year?
degenerate-afro: Stone Meadow: BTW, has anyone nominated Subby for Headline of the Year?For the obvious joke that was make everywhere at once?http://www.joystiq.com/2013/06/19/xbox-one-80-microsoft-reverses-xbo x- one-drm-features/

Someothermonkey: What exactly did Sony do that they took back, and can now might do again?
narkor: Remember all the nerds who would have died rather than buy Sony after they nixed Linux boot and had those rootkits and got hacked? Lot of them seem to have pre-ordered a PS4.
Soup4Bonnie: I wasn't buying one for many reasons. They have eliminated one of them.
Thisbymaster: Kill the kinect and chop off 150 dollars, make netflix and other video/audio services function without your shiatty xbox live subscription. And get Kingdom Heart 3, then I will buy you.
MythDragon: There seems to be quite a few people on gamefaqs that are pissed at this. For God's sake why? They seem to think that DRM ladden games would be cheaper. And taking away the constant on-line requirement somehow ruins the system? The fark?Why are people actualy mad about this?
Jedekai: Everyone hates the Kinect. They think it's stupid - me? I don't have a problem with it... (CUE CLARKSON!)...AND THIS IS WHY:[www.7outof10.co.uk image 850x478]Play Forza 4/Horizon with it once. ONCE.You will never touch the controller again. Wheel and pedal combos? OBSOLETE! The best ($30,000,000 in R&D) racing controller ever!/I fully expect to see Stig helmets aplenty vs. Guy Fawkes masks.
Adolf Oliver Nipples: If you buy the games you want the used games policy doesn't matter, and since I already have a Kinect and a 360 that's on and connected more often than not I give that part of it a big meh. It's really not a big deal. None of it is.
MythDragon: Why are people actualy mad about this?
TheOmni: It's not no DRM. It's just back to the shiatty DRM we have had before instead of a new and differently shiatty DRM.
Elegy: I'm actually a little bummed that MS backed down. I understand why they did it - Internet hate machine was steamrolling them and all - but with the DRM checking came the ability loan out digital copies of my game library, meaning I could have swapped games with my XBL friends. Now, no DRM, back to shiatty single-use licensing for digital content.However, I do understand why that trade off doesn't work for soldiers, people with dodgy Internet connections, and the global market, and I do think MS made the right moveFlashHarry: the always-on camera is still spooky though.DanZero: And yes, still no word on the invasive camera.snuffy: still there is bills unblinking eye on you.Yeahhhhh, that ones been debunked.
