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.

Was with them from the start. Wish they didn't change anything. Can't wait for Dead Rising 3.
Before the changes they made, there was no way I was touching that console. But now, I'd be open to getting one in a year or two... Given they have a sku without the kinect that I'll NEVER use.
As of now though, none of their exclusives are worthy of me spending 500 bucks on, when the competition has better exclusives, better hardware, and a cheaper price.
ill buy one if they sell xbox one without the kinect since its no longer required not gonna pay the extra 100 for something i had no intent on using anyhow so looks like i wont be buying one but dead rising 3 has my attention lol hopefully if i wait long enough ill see it on my ps4
Not for a year or two, no. Got a PS4 preserved and won't have the money for another system anyways. Plus, I'm still not liking Microsoft for the policies it reversed since some of them should never have been made and there is no need to worry about getting it until the next Halo comes out.
Maybe when the price drops a few hundred. Dead Rising 3, Sunset Overdrive and Ryse are all tempting and make me want one, but Im still mad at MS for babying us. And I prefer Sony anyway. I played ps3 since day 1 and ill be playing ps4 since day 1.
Same as before, I'll be getting both the One, and a PS4 at some point.
So I'm paying $100 for something I don't need, no
Still waiting. My worry is that, given their desire to have some of the more controversial features, they may attempt to revisit those features during the console life-cycle or something. Plus, the PS4 is $100 cheaper and seemed a bit more consumer-friendly initially.
Yes i am. My major concern was the kinect having to be connected at all times. As much gaming as i do i don't like the fact that someone could possibly be watching and listening to me at all times. Then their was the DRM and used games issue. They listened to the consumer feedback so my wallet is listening to them in return.
Nope!!! sticking with my PS.
Unless there's something that's an urgent must have, I'm probably going to be sticking with Sony.
I already went away from the 360 being my primary current-gen system because I felt PS+ gave me much more value than Xbox Live, and the early comparisons between the PS4 and Xbox One left me sure the PS4 would be my primary next-gen system. The changes Microsoft has made since the backlash started is good, but at most all it will do is make me likely to get one in a year or two. Still don't see a reason to go away from the PS4, though.
I was and still am going to buy an Xbox One and hopefully shortly after get a PS4 as well. My biggest regret this generation was not getting a PS3 earlier (too many great games for both systems but all my friends had a 360 and played online).
