Microsoft backpedals
Posted by Tobold's Blog [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 20 June 2013, 12:57 am
I would have liked to see how DRM actually affects purchase behaviour, but it is not to be: Microsoft backpedalled and removed the restrictions from the XBone, apparently feeling the heat from bad E3 publicity. The Xbox One will now *not* need an internet connection once a day, and will play used (and pirated) games just fine. You still need internet once to set up the console when you buy it, but that is it. In fact there is now nearly no difference between the XBone and the PS4 regarding DRM.

What Microsoft didn't do, and which I think will hurt them much more, is lowering the price of the XBone by $100.
