Microsoft abandons used games policy

It what is old news now (we're playing catch up  Microsoft has ditched its used games policy after a fierce backlash from consumers. The once-a-day internet connection requirement will also be dropped in favour of a one-time connection when initially setting up the console.

Don Mattrick, president of Interactive Entertainment Business at Microsoft wrote on a blog titled feedback matters "Since unveiling our plans for Xbox One, my team and I have heard directly from many of you, read your comments and listened to your feedback," Basically Xbox One owners will be able to do what the PlayStation 4 has promised from the start which is trade, sell and lend games allthough to play the Xbox One you will still need to go online at least once. 

The reversal of a decision from Microsoft surely puts them back in a level playing field with Sony but is the damage done already considering Sony's massive victory at E3...only time will tell!
