All the cats in here pissed off because Microsoft reversed their policies really should be thankful but they are too naive to understand the bullet that was just dodged. Too naive to understand that the when you set a precedent with a corporation e.g. showing that you don't value your consumer rights, they will take full advantage. You think if gamers showed that they were ok with DRM policies, that Microsoft would reward them by dropping game prices, allowing users to share games with 10 others, and allow you to trade and sell your games? No, they would have tightened the noose even tighter until you began to choke...they would have kept the games at $60.00, let your family play timed demos, and cut off your ability to sell and trade your games. They don't care about the user, they care about the bottom-line, and they were trying to bank on consumer ignorance to sell the console which blew up in their face. They knew from the gate that family share was BS which is why they never elaborated on it. They wanted to trick and deceive consumers into purchasing a box that stripped them of all of their consumer rights. They were trying to set that precedent (that you don't care about your rights) which all other consoles will be built upon. Instead it blew up in their face and they changed course why?
...because of the bottomline!
