A petition on Change.org is asking Microsoft to return Xbox One’s always-online DRM
Microsoft had received a lot of heat when it announced that Xbox One must phone home at least once daily or it would stop running games. Public outrage was so evident, Microsoft had to scrap that requirement completely. But the petitioners believe that Microsoft has ruined the console by listening to “uninformed consumers.”
“This was to be the future of entertainment,” the petition reads. “A new wave of gaming where you could buy games digitally, then trade, share or sell those digital licenses. Essentially, it was Steam for Xbox. But consumers were uninformed, and railed against it, and it was taken away because Sony took advantage of consumers uncertainty.”
“We want this back. It can't be all or nothing, there must be a compromise.”
The petition has already reached its goal of 10,000 signatures.
