Well it took them long enough! Microsoft just posted this update due to the feedback they’ve received from customers. Good news for anyone that preordered an Xbox One or was still on the fence, Microsoft has basically removed everything that gamers felt hindered the console. Which means you can share Xbox games, resell them, and rent them without the originally proposed fee. You will also no longer be required to have an internet connection. You merely have to set up your online account and connect when 1) you download a game purchased online and 2) you want to.
This makes me slightly regret preordering a PS4. The games that I really cared to play are being released for both consoles and many of my friends are in the Xbox camp already which means no playing with them. I guess, really, the only consolation for me is the ability to download PS3 exclusive games through the online store. Maybe when we have the money to buy both we will.
What about you guys? Do any of you think you’ll be switching consoles? Or is this too little, too late?
