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.

No it does NOT, please quit trying to spread FUD to support your position. Not only does Steam give you THIRTY DAYS in offline mode, hassle free, you know how long it takes to crack your Steam game if you want longer than 30 days? About 15 minutes, I have done it when I wasn't sure if I was gonna have a connection for longer than 30 days I just went to gamecopyworld and took less than 20 minutes. With the xbone you better be good with a soldering iron.

And unlike Xbone Steam gives you free updates (MSFT charges devs $10k to update, so your games will always be out of date), Steam gives you free MP, Steam gives you chat, Steam gives you matchmaking and ya know what? YOU HAVE CHOICE! You don't HAVE to use Steam, heck I just got the Serious Sam humble Bundle and the majority of games were DRM free! Oh and FYI if you hurry you can get Torchlight 1 for free at GOG but it ends today so you have to hurry!

But you are acting like we have Steam or nothing when IRL Steam HAS to have lower prices because WE CAN BUY ELSEWHERE while MSFT has a captive audience, not even comparable.
