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.

This means the customer gets to decide which business model to go with.

Until, for whatever reason (either their own interest of power over their customers, incentive from Microsoft, whatever...), they start publishing more and more games as digital downloads only. Or, patch this DRM "feature" back in slowly, bit after bit, and hope their customers don't notice that by the time the next system has been released it has Xbox One's original "features"--which have been there, quietly put back in, all along.
