Microsoft really messed up here. Surely most of you saw my comments and probably assume I’m some PS fanboy. But let me explain where I stand as well as my opinion on the matter. This whole thing honestly reminds me of Windows 8 and how they force changed upon consumers. I’m starting to think they really don't know what they're doing. Yes they corrected their mistake with Windows 8 with the Windows 8.1 update but with Xbox one they appear a bit desperate because of their policy changes today. I honestly believe they didn’t think things through like they did with Windows 8.1. Instead of finding the middle ground they immediately went with the majority of people who wanted DRM removed and without thinking about the other side.
So what do we have now? A newer gen Xbox 360 with all these cute TV features and no new gaming features. Between the 3 new Gen consoles the Xbox One really stood out to me mainly because all of these features. Xbox one could have simply kept the family plan for digital content and the shared library feature as well as allow used games. Which would require people to not be force to installed games to the hard drive if bought as disc. That way users can see the advantages of using digital content. It makes no sense to remove it completely like some of you might think it being a wise decision. We still have CDs for music and Blu-rays are still around. Perhaps in the next 4 or 6 years, yes I can see this happening. Clearly it is not time to remove disc just yet. Instead of thinking things through Microsoft obviously pulled a desperate maneuver due to the Sony E3 Conference.
In conclusion. Don't blame fans who wanted choice. Blame your precious Microsoft for their arrogance and greed for not allowing choice and middle ground. This pathetic attempt to beat Sony only made things worst IMO. Now we have people who feel screwed over and fans who feel that the new Xbox is nothing special now that its features have been stripped away. We lost features, so do you feel that it’s worth the 500$ anymore? I don’t. I usually don't write things like this but I felt like I had to get this off my chest.
