Positive Xbox One Changes

I have to hand it Microsoft! They listened to their consumers feedback. Of course, it’s kind of hard not to listen to MILLIONS of gamers who gang up on your company’s decisions. They could have ignored us though, but they didn’t!


All new restrictions that Microsoft put in place on the XBox One separating it from the XBox 360 and other gaming systems (PS4 and Wii U) have been LIFTED. According to the Huffington Post the Xbox One now no longer has to be “always on” for the system to work. You CAN do used games just like the 360.

This will allow gamers to continue to enjoy the features they have come to love about XBox 360. Yet, with the enhanced upgrades on the XBox One a gamer can also enjoy the online benefits if they desire. When you look at the comments on the Huffington Post, it is shocking to see the amount of people who are complaining now about the change. I feel that Microsoft made a solid decision on this change. They didn’t remove the ability to have the XBOX One be able to connect to the Internet and have those features that they proudly announced at E3, but rather they took away the added EXPENSES for the gamer.

It will be nice to have the ability to use one system for many of my entertainment needs. I just wanted the choice in the matter. I wanted the freedom to make those decisions on my own. I had already ordered this system because I love to have the current systems in my home. I’m just thrilled to learn that I will actually be able to fully enjoy it now.

Are you thrilled over the changes?

Hi, I'm Dale. Some of the things I like to do are box, lift weights, and spend time with my beautiful wife Crystal. I also enjoy watching shows on Netflix or playing video games with my son when I can find some free time.
