Microsoft has said it is "listening" to the various complaints and concerns surrounding the unveiling of its next-generation Xbox One console last week.
Microsoft spokesperson Larry "Major Nelson" Hyrb said that Microsoft is readying up a series of answers relating to key concerns over DRM, the need for the console to check-in online, and a perceived lack of focus from Microsoft on gaming.​

"Right. Anything else?"

I can't tell if he's being a smartass, or is really concerned.

He's just asking for more questions to answer so he can make one big post of all the answers everyone wants to know. That's all.

I see. It seems like this DRM/Use games, shared games, etc. is more to prevent piracy then anything else. In my opinion, it looks like they were trying to take the easy way out.

I really think that Microsoft is going to surprise us. Let's just wait and see what happens.

I just hope they realize how much pressure is on them for E3.

It might be the easy way out but that doesn't mean it's the bad way out. We'll just wait and see until he answers our questions.

Is piracy even that big of a problem on the Xbox 360?

I just hope they really listen to the community and don't go and f*** us all over just for profit. I mean if we end up getting ****ed pretty sure people won't buy their systems and then they will have to change their consoles.

Well imagine how much of a problem it was with movies and cd's. Xbox games are $60 a piece new so weather or not its a big problem its still a lot of money to be loosing out on.

Well Xbox one games are now £90($136.64) according to amazon, which is completely ridiculous, so I'm guessing they're anticipating pirates and making sure they don't loose out, either that or they're a******s
