Damage control is right. Shouldn't have talked about said policies if they didn't know what the hell they were doing.

Man, I feel sorry for xbox support. Check out his @ replies...

Maybe they could have a "policy reveal" show once they've decided how their platform works.

My guess is that nothing changes between now and launch, they just want everyone to shut up.

Keep your damn "always online" bullshit out of my game console, and don't violate my consumer rights, or no sale. You have less than a month to turn this around before E3. Don't fuck it up.

Time for MS to bring out Major Buzzkill

Whats a Major nelson? I never bother to find out.

Well it's good to know they took their time and thought this whole thing out. I'm sure it means great things for the future of this console.

Not surprising if true. I feel like they have no idea what their policies are every time they say something new about used games.

Sounds like they don't know what the hell they are doing. When all the always online hate hit i feel they been making small changes to the point no one knows for sure what will really go down as far as features.

Announce a console with no idea how it works? That's one approach.

They done fucked up. Right now they better do good at E3.

I wont be surprised if there isn't any concrete set of policies for both Xbox One and PS4 till a few months before launch. The lack of clear policy is nothing new or surprising for new consoles, more than anything this is about what policies the other console is is going to have than anything else like "consumer rights".

Microsoft fucked up PR wise, but Sony has not said anything about their policies either (smart on their part). I highly, highly doubt that they will have diverging policies on used games and overall the always online aspects will probably be fairly similar with minor differences. These are purely business decision that can not be made more than 6 months before a console launch.

I'm just going to quote your opinion since I think the exact same thing.

Its funny, because I bet PS's policies aren't final either and they're waiting to see how MS's situation plays out. Its neither good or bad but a little sad that gamers are much more predisposed to trusting them at the moment when they're probably no better than MS.

It is not that no one knows...only a tiny, select, closed circle of people know! But trust them...they know what they are doing!
