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.

... One step back

It's great that some much-needed flexibility has been restored over disc-based games and it's a nice PR move, but I can't help but feel this is delaying the evitable. Games on disc are on borrowed time, and will likely either disappear or be heavily marginalised by the end of the next (PS4/XBox One) generation. In some ways this feels like giving in the the mob and technologically a backward step.
