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.

Can you imagine trying to fire up Civ2 or Super Mario Bros 3 and a message came up saying it couldn't communicate with the game server so f--k you, you can't play?


Right. As I see it, there are basically two types of people:

1. Those who actually want to own their games
2. Those who want to rent their games long-term digitally from services like Steam

I got nothing against either crowd, as long as companies continue to give us an option. That way, both sides are happy. Well, at least until the online service is shut down and the second group is screwed out of their entire catalog, but hey... at least *I* don't have to worry about that ;)
