Region locking, also known as “predatory pricing protection”, is completely at odds with the UNs, and the USAs, policy of Free-Trade.

Game swill indeed.

I wonder if they will stuff it with high explosive just in case you don’t use it in the correct position, well that sounds really daft, but I cant think of many other ways Microsoft can make the new X Box less appealing. What’s even more daft is that people will buy this game machine.

This is the 1st good sign, as it give hackers yet another reason to hack this device.

This is my thoughts, the absolute severity of the DRM in this XboxOne console is going to mean security experts in protest will break the console open.

There is DRM and there is just draconion overkill and that is what Microsoft have way ventured into.

Its amazing that Sony would be considered as the easy going ones giving they are also going a bit DRM happy but it seems to be true compared to the XboxOne.

The XboxOne deserves to tank. And I really hope it does.

They said the same thing about the xbox 360 but most developers make Xbox 360 games region free. MS and Sony will have some tough new protections but I’d say the first console to be hacked will go a long way towards winning the sales war. The first day they are released I can see numerous people prying them open, exploring every inch of their insides.
