This is just confusing. They had weeks before E3 to hear from people about many of these policies. Think of all the hours they spent in creating those video presentations. Days later, they pull it all back. They never really even made a case for why people should go with these changes. This had to of been far more than just "listening to feedback". They saw the numbers on something big that didn't look good and panicked. You don't invest the time and money into developing these systems and just drop them without a big reason.
I'm a little disappointed that they're backing off their stance. I was never going to buy an XBOX One, or an XBOX of any kind. I was looking forward to seeing how devastating the sales were going to be this holiday season. Poeple were naturally going to go with a system that was less restrictive and cost less.
