Celebrating The Xbox 180, And A Rage Reaction To Those Whining About The Policy Reversal
In this video I celebrate the Xbox 180 and Microsoft coming to their senses and changing the policies. I also have a bone to pick with those who aren’t satisfied still, and especially those who are whining about the policies being changed because it “ruined” the console or “stopped innovation”.
Here are the main points of discussion in the video:
- Thanking the gamers, non-gamers, media and anyone who was involved in fighting against these policies.
- Microsoft changing the policies is great. Be happy and relieved. I wouldn’t go as far as to thank them particularly, and don’t forget about this, but be satisfied and put away the grudge because there’s no more reason to hate.
- Addressing those special individuals who are whining about the policy change saying that we stopped innovation. Take it up with Microsoft, we took away nothing. We simply wanted no restrictions, DRM and to maintain the simplicity of console gaming without excluding anyone. Fuck us, right?
- Don’t blame us for the Xbox One losing features. We aren’t complicated. What we want is what we have right now. We haven’t changed. Don’t be a prick.
- Why can’t the Shared Library still work for digital only products? I wouldn’t be surprised if it gets announced again at a later stage.
- Microsoft’s PR needs serious work now, especially because they were still being arrogant about these policies a few days before cancelling them.
- Consoles aren’t yet ready to be forced into a digital world. The transition must take time. It works on PC because of convenience, good prices and numerous distributions, not only one source.
- Addressing those special individuals who are still not satisfied, and saying it’s too late for Microsoft to change.
- Celebrating the fact that the next-gen race can finally begin, and it can stop being about DRM and used games and be about gaming. Now each console is on equal footing, and it’s down to gaming, features and personal preference, as it should be.
- Microsoft. Did. The. Right. Thing.
- More stuff.
