Microsoft has literally bowed down to the demands of gamers, and has completely reversed its course in terms of its used game policy on the upcoming next-generation Xbox One console.
When the Xbox One and Sony PS4 were both confirmed for holiday 2013 release, and pre-orders began following E3, it became quite apparent that the Sony PS4 was looking far superior in the eyes of the consumers.
Many felt this was due to the fact that Microsoft was not being very gamer friendly with their used game policy.
That has all changed, as Microsoft has stated that they are altering all of their Xbox One policies.
The new policy states that all disc-based games do not require an internet connection to be played. The connection every 24-hour requirement is also no longer.
On top of that, there is no longer any limit in terms of playing used games, sharing games with friends, and so on.
Needless to say, if you want to go trade in games at GameStop or buy used games off of eBay, it is going to work exactly the same way it does on the Xbox 360.
Microsoft made a post on their official Xbox One blog stating that “As a result of feedback from the Xbox community, we have changed certain policies for Xbox One reflected in this blog.”
So based on this news gamers, are you now more likely to buy an Xbox One, or are you still leaning towards the Sony PS4?
