Microsoft revealed today that it was doing a complete 180 on its DRM and always online policies. This means no checking in with Microsoft’s servers every 24 hours and that you will be able play used games and borrowed games without restriction. This also means that you will be able to trade in your old games at places like GameStop and BestBuy. Also the system will be region free, meaning that import games will be playable on any system. This does a ton to help level the playing field between Microsoft and Sony when it comes to sales of their next generation consoles. This is also a testament to Microsoft for being able to admit that they were wrong and actually listen to their customer base, you also have to think that $$$ has a lot to do with it. This announcement may have done a lot to help level the playing ground, but the PS4 is still $100 cheaper than the Xbox One. I’m just glad to see that fans of either console will get what they want when it comes to their decisions.
