Petition To Bring Back DRM On Xbox One

    Xbox one, pleases ... no one!
    Recently Microsoft abandoned a digital rights managment (DRM) system that would prevent gamers from sharing second-hand games on the Xbox One and whilst most gamers were overjoyed with the decision to reverse DRM, this hasn't pleased everyone, with a petition appearing to reverse the reversal.
    When Microsoft announced that the console would require used games to be traded only with approved retailers, and that it would be possible to trade a game with a friend only once and then only if you have had the person on your Xbox Live friends list for a month or more, gamers were displeased. Disc-based titles on the current Xbox 360 allow for transfer of ownership with no limits, bar any single-use codes for extra content that the publisher may have included in the box.
    Microsoft's Don Mattrick, who has since left the company to join casual gaming giant Zynga, initially dismissed concerns, but Sony's announcement that its rival PlayStation 4 would have no such restrictions forced the company's hand. The DRM decision was reversed, with all restrictions on second-hand sales of disc-based titles being removed from the company's plans.
    Not everyone is happy, however. The DRM as proposed by Microsoft did include some welcome features among the restrictions: gamers were able to install disc-based games and play them on any console without needing the original disc, and could share their game library with up to ten family members - even if they live elsewhere.
    Now, a petition has been started asking Microsoft to bring back those features - blaming "uninformed" consumers who did not understand the benefits of the system for the decision to remove useful features. While the petition, titled Microsoft: Give us back the Xbox One we were promised at E3, has attracted nearly 8,500 signatures, many are from those counter-protesting the petition with names such as Banana Bobelstein, Valor Skywalker, John Whatzittoya and Todd McGoats appearing among the more legitimate-sounding names.
    Microsoft has yet to respond to the petition so i guess we wait and see. What are your thoughts on DRM ?

    Why the hell would someone want them to reverse their policies. I like that they made it so you can play used games and also don't have to connect to the internet once every 24 hours

    Simple.. ps4 is for people who dont have a lot of money... I probably never buy used games anymore to begin with since most the games that end up on gamestop shelves that are A LOT cheaper tend to suck anyways... I loved the DRM policies now all the X1 has become is an pricier ps4... Picture this a single player giant like Skyrim comes out for the x1... You and 9 friends/family split on this game boom you just bought a triple A game for 6 bucks and you can play it when someone else isn't using it and stuff ( SAME IDEA AS LENDING A GAME ). It's not friggen rocket science

    for the entire idea of xbox one i think microsoft should ask themselves what would we have done 12 years ago? because the first xbox and the 360 were both very good consoles and then they came out with a VCR shaped box that plays tv shows

    I will burn the DMR and those that started the petition, seeing as its PS4 fanboys that are crying and have started the petition in hopes of winning back the top spot on the pre-ordering charts
