They did a lot of backtracking today announcing a complete reversal of their policies, but people won't have short-term memory with this one. Those policies could just as easily be forced on users down the line, just as they were forced on them in the beginning. I'm sure publishers will be asking Microsoft whats up.

It'll be PS4 day one for me unless Microsoft makes the One a console worth my money.

and drop the price of the xbox by $200. the PS4 is superior and $100 cheaper.

if anything they need to offer the system cheaper than the PS4 as a means of damage control at this point after scaring their fanbase

It would be different if it was a bunch of Playstation fan-boys talking shit about the Xbox One, but a majority of ALL gamers aren't happy with it. I've seen several 360 owners preordering the PS4. Microsoft fucked up, and they'll need to do something interesting to make things right.

Maybe they should reverse their "must always be on" Kinect policy as well.

agree, that is stupid and I don't get it. What if you're going on a trip somewhere with no internet access / get your internet disconnected / somehow have to go without coverage for over 24 hours. tough luck? what if someone just wants to play the games without using any of the online features? that whole thing is stupid.

yep agree totally. I try to be as unbiased as possible (own both 360 / ps3 and liked both). this time i'm going with the ps4 only though.
