Could Microsoft add the restrictions again later

Firstly, is it possible for them to add the DRM stuff later on (eg a few months after the Xbox One was out) Secondly, how likely do you think it is that they will do it

  • [quote]is it possible for them to add the DRM stuff later on (eg a few months after the Xbox One was out)[/quote]... Technically speaking it's possible since it's like that at launch and we're downloading a patch to change it, yes. [quote]Secondly, how likely do you think it is that they will do it[/quote]Zero. Without question.

  • They might add some of the digital sharing parts of the original policies but nothing as extreme as what you are thinking.

  • I'm not advocating anything but... I do think the future of all electronics will be heavily centered around connectivity. I also can't imagine a company as ambitious as Microsoft waiting a whole console cycle to implement the innovations they worked so hard on. I think when the time is right, DRM will return to the X1. Slowly...but surely.

  • Yes they could, doubtful that they will implement it in the same way though. Though they could implement it with "cloud processing" much like EA did with the sims.

  • Either console can add those later. I'm going to guess that neither will do so any time soon.
