The lights are on
Microsoft has systematically reversed, tweaked, and improved its policies related to the Xbox One. The system we're talking about today is very different than the one revealed on May 21, 2013.
We thought it would be good to check in with you, our readers, and find out whether Microsoft's changes have changed the way you look at the Xbox One (for better or for worse). Here's the full list:
If you were upset about the Xbox One back in May, has Microsoft won you over? If you were ready for the digital revolution, has that reversal turned you off? Let us know in the comments.

I have had this fully paid off since day one. That is all I have to say.
I was giving Microsoft a shot at winning me over, but they feel flat on their face pre-E3. It was almost comical. Now, seeing their frantic backpedaling has pushed me very far away from them. I may enjoy their products if I try them, but I will never purchase an Xbox One because I do not trust Microsoft after what they've done to their consumers this past year.
No, why pay $100 more for less?
I was buying one regardless, my purchase of a ps3 was a compete waste of my money. It just sits in my room collecting dust, hasn't been turned on in two weeks. It's useless to me since GameStop is no longer taking preorders for the Xbox one i couldn't trade it in. Planned on using that money towards the preorder and my preorder money at best buy towards a game. Anything and everything that's a Sony product has been complete crap. The ps3, their stereos, their tvs, car stereos... All broke withing months of usage. Ps3s online is horrendous, the last of us was extremely disappointing and not close the the "masterpiece" fan boys claim it to be. Decent game? Yes.. "Masterpiece"? Far from it.
I still don't want to pay 100 $ for a kinect so I guess I'll wait till they chop that off.
Someday. Not at launch. Maybe next holiday or the one after. My PC, WiiU, 360, and incoming PS4 will be more than enough for a while.
No; they blew it. They actually reminded me I got the RRoD.
As a pc gamer who has a hard time justifying the need for a console they will need to do alot to impress me, at the time if I do get one its still a ps4 being the xbox still doesent have enough that interests me.
No, because it's still Microsoft and it's still not a dedicated gaming console. I'm not paying 500 bucks for a paperweight with a lens and countless features that aren't worth a cent to me. I don't want to have an all-in-one entertainment system, I want the future of games!
NO way in hell!
I'll consider it once they announce that the Xbox One will play PS4 discs. Seriously though, I was never angry at Xbox. I just didn't want one, and even though Xbox is looking more and more attractive I still want a PS4 more.
Although it seems that it is ridiculously impossible to satisfy consumers these days, I for one am very happy with the changes Microsoft has made. However, I'm still with the PS4 this time as I was before as all my friends will be on it and I'd like to change things up a bit with having an XBox this generation. But now that the Kinect isn't mandatory to play for the XBox One, Microsoft could possibly sell an XBox One $100 less without the Kinect, which would possibly garner Microsoft another recruit in me.
