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.

Oh you do NOT want to get me started on fricking EA! You know how many games I have found sitting in bargain bins that might as well be a useless hunk of plastic thanks to EA pulling the plugs?

There is no damned excuse when i can fire up a game of Team Fortress Classic from 1998 and be happily fragging away while a game that isn't even half that from EA you can't play shit.I got the MoH Anniversary like a year and a hald after it came out and NONE of the games, not a single one, had MP that would work! Hell a couple of the games wouldn't even run on anything newer than XP, did EA care or put out a patch to fix it? Nope.
