Microsoft announced the Xbox One's DRM requirements today, and we want to know what you think.
Following a promise last week to release the digital rights management requirements of its upcoming Xbox One console, Microsoft made several announcements Thursday. Some of the console's DRM initiatives include the facts that it requires a connection to the Internet at least once every 24 hours to play games, publishers may restrict the trade-in of used games, and the next-generation Kinect sensor will only listen for the "Xbox on" command when in stand-by mode.
Few questions remain about the console's DRM requirements, but one question is perhaps more important than ever, it's just not for Microsoft to answer: Did the announcements impact how users feel about the Xbox One?
Many in the gaming community have already taken to social media outlets and gaming message boards to discuss their disdain for the DRM requirements, though the online gaming community doesn't always adequately represent the views of the gaming population as a whole. While Neowin also isn't a representation of the population as a whole, we want to know your thoughts. Do you care about the announcements? In what way? Or had you already made up your mind?
As always, feel free to discuss your thoughts in the comments below.
