Itâ€™s hard to argue that the PlayStation 4 wiped the floor with the Xbox One at E3 last week. Not only was it revealed that the PS4 wonâ€™t have DRM of any sort, but itâ€™s even going to be $100 cheaper at launch.
So, in saying that, some people might be thinking or assuming that Microsoft will counteract Sonyâ€™s announcements with some of their own. Sadly, that doesnâ€™t seem to be the case.
Spotted over on NeoGAF is an interview Microsoft Director of Programming Larry â€œMajor Nelsonâ€ Hryb did with RedditGames. In the video interview (which you can watch below), when asked if Microsoft will change anything regarding the Xbox One as an answer to Sonyâ€™s announcements, Hryb mentioned the following:
Hereâ€™s the actual video interview with the statement coming in at around the 3:58-minute mark.
Of course, thereâ€™s always the chance that Microsoft might backtrack or change some of its policy once people donâ€™t warm up to the Xbox One. But for now, donâ€™t expect any changes for its â€œalways-onâ€ and used games policy.

What are your thoughts on this? Should Microsoft listen to the uproar happening all over the Internet, or it wonâ€™t matter anyway since people will still buy the Xbox One regardless of their policy? They do have Titanfall exclusive for now, so maybe it is â€œnuff said?!â€
