Do you think Microsoft will 180 again on their DRM policy sometime in the future?

No, they will come up with a new version.

Hopefully a hybrid of digital games require 24 hour checkin, disc games do not.

That's certainly plausible.

Anyone who votes yes is either not rational or yet another fanboy who votes everything negative when it comes to Microsoft. If you vote yes you're basically saying that Microsoft is trying to trap us into buying the console only to impliment the drm later after they have your purchase.

Here's what may happen. They may choose to have Xbox One owners opt in for the original drm at a later date. Once you opt in for that, you can have your precious family plan where you can download whatever is on your account from anywhere if you have the user name and password. This would be optional, and not forced as was originally intended. Obviously theyre not going to say anything about this right now because this is an extremely sensitive topic.

The current model where you can use any disc in your disc drive will not be removed at any point next gen. You see, it would be suicide for Microsoft to all of a sudden impliment an on-line only plan at a later date. This is just plain common sense.

Going back to the original plan is impossible now that they have allowed offline gaming using discs.

I agree that it will likely be a hybrid model that can be opted into with digital delivery purchases but not disc based ones.

They have repeatedly said it will come back in some way shape or form.

Your first paragraph is exactly what will happen if and when the get a decent install base.

You really think that will happen LICKWID? I mean honestly? I don't see MS waiting for a massive amount of users and then BAM, switching back to the old policies. It would be suicide. And they are not that dumb.

Why is it that there are so many paranoid people who post on gamefaqs? It's disturbing. It's like where all the socially inept and weird people go to voice their 'concerns' which if they told their shrink, would probably contact the police and just 'let them know' that they could very well be a danger to themselves and others.

Of course it won't be as switch like as what you just said which is why I said "in some way shape or form"but anyone who pays attention when MS speaks knows they want and intend to bring it back.

If your understand the amount of money MS can make off of it then I can see how it's easy to wait till 10 or 20 million are in homes.

All jokes aside I do firmly believe it's coming back not because I hate MS but because I simply take heed when they speak. Their TOS alone leaves the door wide ooen for a reimplimentation.
