But do you know what sent me into cackles of glee when I heard it in the early morning from a friend's sofa. "Microsoft has gotten rid of it's DRM and always Online Policy for the Xbox One". Oh yes my friends, the U-turn of the year has just passed us by. Less than a month after the PR nightmare that was the May 21st Reveal and E3 slaughterfest and Microsoft come running, tail between legs, admitting in full that they are nothing but a bunch of incompetent con-men who tried to milk the cash-cow so hard, the udders would've fallen off.
Even though it is a title attached purely to hammer home the shame and derision I feel for Microsoft. It is still a better name than the Xbox One.
But while this is most certainly a victory for consumer right's in the gaming industry, and a possible precedent set in terms of the sheer hammering a company has to receive before it decides that to admit fault and change is preferable to the decimation it would've received in November. As someone much wiser than me once said...Never Forget.
