Microsoft does a 360 turm on their Xbox One policies

21 Jun


When Jeff heard about the new policy’s that Redmond-based Microsoft was implementing with their new gaming console, Xbox one, he wasn’t happy. One of the main reasons was that part of the gaming experience is being able share with your friends, exchange your game with other gamers or sell your old game to buy another game. Another reason was the new policy stating that a player would need to connect their Xbox to the Internet atleast once per day. It seems that Jeff wasn’t the only to think this way since Microsoft received so many complaints that they changed those policies.

You told us how much you loved the flexibility you have today with games delivered on disc. The ability to lend, share, and resell these games at your discretion is of incredible importance to you. Also important to you is the freedom to play offline, for any length of time, anywhere in the world,” said Don Mattrick, President, Interactive Entertainment Business at Microsoft, in a blog post yesterday. He then added “So, today I am announcing the following changes to Xbox One and how you can play, share, lend, and resell your games exactly as you do today on Xbox 360.”

It is great to see that the people at Microsoft have listen to their customers and made these corrections months before the release of the new gaming system. It does make one wonder though why they made the decision to implement those policies in the first place. Was it a case of the upper management thinking that there customers would be fine with the changes and buy the new system or was it just an over sight. Of course, whichever of these reason it was the fact that they changed and will now let us exchange our games and leave our consoles disconnect from the Internet was the right choice.
