Games "Microsoft has sensationally abandoned its controversial plans to restrict the sharing of XBox One games, and has also removed daily online authentication requirements for its forthcoming console", reports The Guardian. They had no choice. Still a good move.

Someone finally smelt the coffee and maybe not too late to save the fate of their console.

Nice to see the public are not as moronic as some rather greedy folk thought, seems slightly empowering in terms of consumer rights and strangely amusing.

I wasn't going to buy one regardless but always have a nano celebration when we don't have to bow to the whims of a tech firm who happen to fancy extracting a little more from a strong market of theirs... at your expense.
(MS are far from the only ones and Sony aren't my hero either)
