    I think I know who is going to win worst company of the year next year. Microsoft is bending over backwards for producers at the consumer's expense. I'm almost hoping/expecting most consumers boycott the Xbox One and it will be one of the largest market failures ever. If people don't boycott it, these kinds of draconian DRM schemes will infiltrate the entire console market.

    Thousands of people will claim to boycott it, like Modern Warfare 2 or Mass Effect 3, but is will be a resounding success all around, because morons cant keep it in their pants; shiny new things are far too attractive to them to just not buy.
    Most digital industry businesses will LOVE the XBone, because of the whole film licensing and preowned game costs, not to mention internet ISP's will receive lots of subscribers from those who need internet connection to run the damn console. This is only the beginning I think.

    PC is ahead of the curve. PC titles went down this path Microsoft is now and it completely backfired (see SimCity, Spore, Anno 2070, etc.). PC publishers are now backing off the draconian DRM and are sticking to modest DRM.

    People will only pay so much for a product/service. If they can get it for less than that (second hand or piracy), they'll do it. If they cannot, they simply won't buy. At the end of the day, I think how much publishers make will be virtually unchanged but complaints will be high. Just like every other high piracy environment, logic dictates to back off on DRM because it doesn't translate into more revenue but undeniably translates into more unhappy customers.

    I truly hope you are right.
    But sadly, corporations are going to be greedy as and when they can, at our expense.

    Its all the drones who are not reading sites like this, that will buy it knowing nothing about what we are discussing here, so the sales will still be high.

    I thought it already was on the 360. It certainly does at the main menu or in a Kinect game. I have one because the wife wanted it. I use it occasionally, it's missing the depth bit though. Between held motion sensors and a camera, I think they could do wonders, but I digress.

    Oh please. First off 59 bucks for a video game is cheaper than games were 15 years ago adjusted for inflation. So "Waaaaa games are to expensive" argument doesn't hold water. Not even remotely. Second all this DRM crap IS NO DIFFERENT than steam or origin and the last time I checked PC sales were doing just fine. Wanna place blame on this new console DRM? Look no further than the normal PC gamer logged into steam.
