Xbox One: Angry Rant Pt.2 Press Release
Microsoft has released official information regarding their restrictive policies implemented on the New Xbox One Console. Here is my response.
-24 hour DRM.
-1 hour DRM if you bring your game to a friends house.
-No renting, no loaning. No private sales (unless selling to someone who has been on your friends list for 30 days)
-Broadband Internet connection required.
-Trade-ins are up to the publisher and only at “participating” retailers.
+You can give a game to a friend only if they have been on your friends list for 30 days, and then only ONCE.
+Up to 10 family members can play your games from any console at any time? You & one other at a time.
Also, where is the guarantee that majority of publishers won’t restrict me from letting my friend borrow it? Or letting me sell the game if it sucks?
What if live servers or down or get hacked?
