Microsoft announced that they have listened to the negative feedback and have removed the 24-hr online check, and the DRM.

That's good but that doesn't make them a good guy. Only reason they did it because they knew if they didn't it would heavily effect their bottom line.

ahh microsoft, very clever marketing strategy. first they introduce the product with many features that they know everyone will hate, and in return it brings an extensive amount of attention to the system. even though it is negative attention, it's pre-release so any attention is good attention. then, once you got everyone angrily watching closely, they take every hated feature away and suddenly everyone is like yay microsoft! you listened to us, now we love you forever!...while they still retain all the attention previously gained with the features that they knew everyone would hate.

I'm still not interested in the XBone. The lack of backwards compatibility, the required Kinect, and the high price of both the system and the games still keeps me away.

The games for the Xbox One are still only going to be $60 (at least in the US). But yes, the price of the console is definitely one of the turn-off's for me as well.

I see the Amazon price has gone down from the original $99.95 price tag for XBone games. But still, $499.96 is mighty steep.
