Xbox One drops DRM

Xbox One drops DRM
I personally thought Microsoft would stick to their guns and not drop the DRM. And, things got very testy with certain interviewers when they brought up the DRM. They stood their ground and kept saying they wouldn't drop their DRM policy.
Basically, Microsoft dropped the 24 hour Internet connection requirement and the ban on used games. This is very good news, but make no mistake that they felt the from Sony and knew they were going to lose some of their market. They're still sticking with the 500 dollar price tag. And, that might hurt them in the long run. But, they are going to drop that Always Online nonsense.

So, it is good to see Microsoft reverse their minds on this sticking point. This evens the playing field.
