I'm glad that Microsoft is apparently listening to its customer base. Power to the people! Our words, actions, and hilarious memes turned the tides!

Hopefully the rumors turn out to be true.

To be fair they already lost me as an immediate customer. Would make me reconsider buying one in the future but too late for anything else.

Why doesn't this post have more likes?

And this is good news, but way to drop the *bleep*ing ball Microsoft.

Celes Leonhart I think this is the reason for their quick turnaround. Lots of people only start with one console, how many sales have they lost already?

Two years from now we'll get a firmware update that puts it all back in.

Sorry Microsoft I'm not interested.

I dunno, for some reason I doubt it's as simple as "Hey, sorry guys! We'll take that all away."
They'll either put in something to compensate for the "loss" or bring it back in the future.

I'd rather they'd have just stuck to their guns honestly, they've pushed it so hard and made such a point at how it's "necessary" for the online architecture. Just looks feeble.

Bait and switch.
People who fall for this are going to have a big problem in a year or three, when MS adds everything bad back twofold, and they who bought it realize that they can't sue MS.

Honestly surprised they made the changes.
After so many times that they said they won't change it and when customers try it they'll know how good it is lol

Edit: Still going to stick with the PS4, it's cheaper and the exclusives appeal me more. o:

Despite this change, there are still some downsides:

-A smaller game selection due to indies not being able to self-publish.
-Mandatory Kinect, which ups the price of the console.
-No more family sharing plan.
-Free apps like Netflix are still paywalled.

Still not worth it over PS4.
