It is clear microsoft understand that people want a compromise and I think thats what we are going to get. I am not going to lie, I was pro Xbox One from the reveal mostly because the DRM issues didn't effect me since I am an always online gamer anyway and there were no negatives that would cause me to move to the stuck in the past PS4. As a result I was very disappointed when I found out the family sharing was going to be taken away but reading this article has made me feel confident that the Xbox One is going to be a stronger console all round. e.g superior online service, ideal DRM policies that suit digital and disc users and ideal video streaming (instead of social media integration. I mean common, who on facebook wants to know if you just beat uncharted 4?).

No, we can't, the kinect is compulsory because developers will then know that everyone has one and can build games knowing that everyone will have the capacity to utilize the kinect features. The TV stuff is part of the package that Microsoft want us to have. You may only want console and games, but MS want us to have the complete multimedia experience. You either accept it, or move to Playstation.

the advantage consoles have over p.c,s are their accessibility . you put in your disc & you're ready to go, what ms seem to want (in between t.v & nfl) is a very convoluted way o taking away all your rights as a consumer, and expecting you to be happy about it. And to go back to steam again, just because p.c losers thought giving up their rights was a good idea doesn't mean we all do , and as i write this , sony have announced that you will be able to access your games from any console & they didn't need over restrictive drm in order to do that, ms are you taking note?
SilentDark wrote:Marc, this isn't hard. Enable family sharing for downloaded games, keep things as they are for disc based games. Why did MS have a problem with that concept to start with? You didn't need to alienate people, you didn't need to start a giant civil war on planet xbox, everyone can have what they want, it called choice. Give people a choice, see what they do with it. I want my games that I can play as and when I want, I want games without restrictions on what I can do with them after I'm finished, others want what you were originally offering, so why was having it both ways so fundamentally impossible to start with?
