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.

New and old

I really don't see why a new method preclude the use of the old way, just ask people what they want and go ahead with it.

There are games I would like to play alone and with no need to connect to Internet and I would buy a disc or download and have it signed. On others that I would like to share and play on-line, I would use the new method. These are easy to accomplish by any new console.

MS, let people decide what and when things are better for them. Forced feeding never worked very well on long term. So much nonsense by MS lately.
