No one really knows what telemetry ... MS used to reverse itself. I'm sure if they didn't have data that showed it was in their best interest, they would not have done it. And if the limited time on family share was true, when that was revealed it would have been even more negative drama.

I dont understand why people think that when a technology becomes old (Disc), makes it obsolete.  People were just not  ready for a fully digital console yet, and was the reason for the Xbox One backlash. The Xbox One was like a 2020 console being released in 2013. Making a console fully digital is a nice idea, but it gives the publishers/Microsoft total control over the games which is unsettling.  If Microsoft wants to emulate the Steam model,they should make an entirely new console.  I bet now the folks at Microsoft are working overtime modifying the Xbox to not have DRM and internet requirement!

It was a given that Microsoft would reverse course after all the uproar over it.

They made the right choice in reversing course.  The draconian DRM policies have already proven to actually reduce sales by a large margin rather than increase them many times with game developers in the past.

 

Before the reversal, an XBox One was completely out of the question for me, now I might consider getting one.

That's weird. Maybe it's just been all the hype recently, but I have been led to believe the Xbox One is an entirely new console.

 

I'm not saying disks are obsolete, but there certainly are better delivery methods other than driving to your nearest game store handing over cash to bring home a physical medium containing your new game. There aren't nearly as many Video/DVD rental stores around anymore because movies are now being delivered digitally. Why should gaming consoles be left out of this digital revolution?

 

If something is inevitable, why wait around dragging your feet to implement it. I don't understand how people can't be "ready for it now" but they will be in 2020. People are just scared of change. Those same people should take a look at Darwin's theory of evolution.

 

I for one will never buy a disc based game again provided their is a digital copy available. Why run the risk of the losing the disk, the disk being damaged, or having to rummage through mountains of disks trying to find the one game you want to play when it is there ready to go at the press of a button.

 

Stupid dinosaurs should just die out already and let the rest of us enjoy what technology can provide us.

So do that, they're still allowing day one digital downloads for their entire library.
