Do You Think Microsoft Will Reverse The DRM Again In The Future?

It's nice to see some nice civil posts. I really hope they don't bring back any type of DRM but part of me feels like they might. The DRM policies they had really wouldn't have even affected me because I buy physical only, don't sell/trade games, and my internet never goes out unless the power goes out and in that case I couldn't play the system anyway. It's the backpedaling that really makes me distrust Microsoft because they shouldn't have had to do it in the first place. I just hope they learned from their mistakes.


Again, they have already indicated that they are considering some portions of their original policy in various interviews but reverting completely back to all the original policies across the board won't happen for very obvious reasons.

The hybrid model, however, is all but a certainty.

look at that, 41 ignorant clueless people


The board is currently the stomping ground for the Gamefaqs *****-and-giggles squad, just as the Wii U board was. Don't expect logic or genuine opinions until months after launch, from either the defenders or the attackers.

Let's just hope that all their doing is considering and not implementing.

Its up to gamers to decide what actually happens.

Yes, and they will try to sell it as a feature.

All the DRMs are coming back at a later date, they've always been pretty clear on that point.
