React Episode 8 – Microsoft Kills DRM and Always Online for Xbox One

Written by on    

The internet blew up earlier today at the official announcement that Microsoft has officially cancelled their DRM and always online policies. We all saw the cheers Sony got last week when they announced their console would be DRM free, and since then Microsoft has had a ton of negative press to deal with. Now Microsoft has announced their decision to completely change their policy.

What does this mean for next-gen? Could gamers have possibly ruined the growth of the gaming industry by forcing Microsoft to change their minds? What position does this put Sony and Nintendo in? Richard Bailey, Anthony Frasier, Jakejames Lugo and I discuss the aftermath of this shocking turn of events on The React podcast.
