Xbox One: New Petition Looking To Re-Reverse DRM Policies, Not Sure If Serious

In a rather bizarre turn of events, or possible just a facetious turn of events, a new petition has popped up on…to demand Microsoft reinstate the DRM policies that garnered the system such massive negativity.


The petition that went live in the past 24 hours, has gained a small following. The mystique surrounding the want to change the Xbox One back to it’s originally intended restrictions has confused most onlookers. The restrictions in question were routinely rallied against from moment one, and created such a negative ferver Microsoft had to reverse their decisions on DRM shortly after their showing at E3. The restrictions forced severe limitations onto any user of the Xbox One, through some ill-conceived plan of finance, through the use of controlling DRM policies.

Looking at the comments section, does little in concluding the curiosity: not sure if serious.

For example:

I love restrictions. I want always online DRM. I want the game rental business to become obsolete. I don’t want to let my friends borrow games, because fuck them. All I care about is my god damn new age console that’ll blow everything else out of the water! Fuck the PS4 and fuck those Sony guys for catering to fans who care about their gaming experience. Fuck PC, that shit is stupid. Steam? Fuck that shit. They never have sales or anything. It’s not as affordable as buying my games from the XBL marketplace. I love Microsoft and their business practices will be the best forever. Fuck yes. <3 Xbox.

While I’m inclined to believe many involved are indeed, trolling…I’ll never underestimate human stupidity.

Let’s remind Microsoft to just “laugh this one off” and move on with our gaming lives.

Moving On….
