I still see no reason to get an Xbox One. They knew that having these restrictions in place would make everyone leave the console, so they gave into pressure and retracted the things that they had set out to do after they had already announced that they would do it. Seems pretty shady, if you think about it.
Plus, the price is still $100 higher and Kinect 2 is still required all of the time. Not to mention that Xbox Live is still not as good of a deal as PS+ either. I also wouldn't be surprised if they pulled some DRM scheme AFTER everyone purchased the console just so they can make a cheap buck.
Which is why I would rather wait and see what happens before I think about getting an Xbox One.
Youtube is filled with various M$ fanboys like the OP who are switching back because of this. I seriously can't take Xbox gamers seriously anymore. One second... "XBOX SUCKS NAO, SONY 4EVAR" *policies removed* "OH EM GEES, XBOX IS KEWL AGEN, THANKS DON. XBOX WAY BETTAR THAN PS4" Make up your **bleep** minds. The fact that they were actually willing to release the console like it was already shows that they are not worth it....Then again, you learn to never take "gamers" on Youtube seriously since a good majority are Xbox users.

The competition is not leveled. The PS4 still stomps Xbox one into dust in every technical aspect there is. Good luck.

MS backtracking on their policies makes me even less likely to buy one. It shows a lack of vision and leadership on their part. I didn't agree with all their new requirements, but if that was the vison they had for the future of gaming, I respected it, and was intrigued by some aspects of it. To do a complete 180 shows me MS doesn't know what they really want their future to be. This backtracking also doesn't change the fact that MS is catering soley to the US at the expense of the rest of the world. It doesn't change the fact that it is more expensive, and that extra expense is tied to the Kinect which I do not want. It also doesn't change the fact that the PS4 is more powerful. Good luck with the X-One, but it's PS4 for me day one.
I used to be one. I understand why he loves his console, it's just a difference of opinion.
I know for a fact that ps4 has better specs and all, but he doesn't realize that.
Just let him have his console. We (as PS gamers) know that our console is better. But he (and the Xbox community) will never comply with that. So lets just ignore all these Xbox players and focus on what really matters. Our console and our community.
