Proving categorically that you can’t please all the people all the time, an online petition has popped up calling for Microsoft to reinstate the always-on internet requirement and restrictive used games policy for the Xbox One.
The petition: “Microsoft: Give us back the Xbox One we were promised at E3” has already seen more than 7,000 signatures.
This was to be the future of entertainment. A new wave of gaming where you could buy games digitally, then trade, share or sell those digital licenses. Essentially, it was Steam for Xbox. But consumers were uninformed, and railed against it, and it was taken away because Sony took advantage of consumers uncertainty.
We want this back. It can’t be all or nothing, there must be a compromise.
We’ll see how this pans out and keep you posted. MS has already gone back on its word once, we’re not expecting it to go again.
