After digital rights management caused Microsoft to change its Xbox One features, now some gamers are asking for an always-online experience.
The most active petition on Change.org right now is calling for Microsoft to “give us back the Xbox One we were promised at E3.” A full 4% of people visiting Change.org at this moment are looking at this petition, which was started by Change.org user David Fontenot.
“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 can't be all or nothing, there must be a compromise.”
David’s petition blew up this week and already has over 12,000 signatures, becoming just one in a list of gaming petitions that have taken off on Change.org over the past year.
