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.

It is a shit choice Thom. There was the chance the remove retail outlets out of the equation from what was (at the end of the day) software distribution.

No the shit choice is creating a product that inspires anger in the majority of your potential customers.

They made a smart choice to remove the controversial changes. Pre-order stats and polls showing which console was highly favored were not a mystery to anyone. Digging in for a quick loss before the next gen even started would be stupid.

It's a business decision.

Deal with it.
