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.

Every word of that is 100% spot on, shame I can't vote you up.

I'd also mention EA's policy of shutting down the servers which support the missing parts of games (aka DLC) and online multiplayer as early as they possibly can; seems like 18 months is all you get now for the titles with yearly revisions.

I wonder why they might do that? Do they not feel the new version is compelling enough without forcing their customers to upgrade?

No thanks EA (or whoever else won't let me own the game I bought) I don't care how good your title is as I'll never play it to find out.
