The Xbox One was announced just a few months ago in May and since then fans have had a lot to talk about in regards to what their thoughts were about the Xbox One. However, if there is one thing that Microsoft did wrong was marketing the idea of the Xbox One and what it had to offer. Well it seems now that fans are now still making there voices heard in regards to the Xbox One that another petition has started asking Microsoft to restore the Xbox One policies it reversed following E3.
Since the announcement of the Xbox One fans were in outrage that the console had to check in every 24 hours, and that trading used games might be a thing of the past. However, what fanÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s did not see was the potential that the Xbox One had in allowing the family share plan that will allow up to any ten friends of your choosing to play any of your video game library including at the same time and on different consoles, the ability to let friends who are on your list borrow games, on top of not having to wait for updates to download or delay game play and buy, trade and sale digital rights.
Well fans are making themselves heard again with this petition. In the petition on change.orgÃ‚Â the organizer David Fontenot asks Microsoft toÃ‚Â Ã¢â‚¬Å“give us back the Xbox One we were promised at E3.Ã¢â‚¬ÂÃ‚Â In addition the petition also states, Ã¢â‚¬Å“This was to be the future of entertainment. A new wave of gaming where you could buy games digitally, then trade, share or sell those digital licenses. Essentially, it was Steam for Xbox, but consumers were uninformed, and railed against it, and it was taken away because Sony took advantage of consumers uncertainty. We want this back. It canÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t be all or nothing, there must be a compromise.Ã¢â‚¬Â
In all honesty this Fangirl has to agree with organizer David Fontenot as I believe that bad marketing and not letting the fans get a understanding of what the new Xbox One was really all about. The new generation of gaming and the Xbox One had it all if people really understood what the console was really going to provide. The console war really hated up after E3, and after research many gamers are seeing the other option. With only over 8,000 signatures left needed, is this something you would sign for? Or maybe possibly give the fans the option?
What are your thoughts on this petition? Do you think gamers are now really seeing the potential of the Xbox One and felt they made a mistake? Comment below and let me know! Also do not forget to follow me on twitter @kupid149
