If you owned it you would be able to control who can use it and when.
Since that option has been taken away from us, we no log cn even own the things we buy. What a crock.

No he's correct, you've only ever owned a license to use the software (legally). It's just never been enforceable before beyond maybe calling you out if you start handing out pirated copies you made from your one.

No one is defending the xbox one. People are arguing stuff that they have no expertise in. Unless GameFAQs was suddenly populated by lawyers.

Actually, it's true. You do just own the license to use (play) it. That's how software works. That's how it's always worked. It's just that with the way it's always worked out for consoles in the past, there was never any real way for the owner (developer, publisher, Microsoft, whoever the owner happens to be) to revoke your license permissions or enforce how it could be used. Now there is. And you'll likely have to agree to it during game installation with one of those long-ass terms and conditions things like many PC games require.
