Microsoft must have realized they got their asses handed to them when Sony announced the PS4 at E3 last week. It basically combated everything the Xbox One had including required internet connections and restrictions on game sharing and selling,
Microsoft revealed that the Xbox One will no longer require gamers to log onto the internet in order to play offline and that game sharing, selling, and buying will remain the same as it does now. They also mentioned that games will be available via Xbox Live for download instead of buying a physical disc, but not required.
I still think the PS4 will come out on top, but we shall see how this pans out. The fact that the price tag still is at $500 has prevented some minds from changing.
