Online Petition Asks Microsoft to Bring Back Xbox One Policies

A new online petition has been invoked to ask Microsoft to bring back their controversial next-gen policies for the Xbox One.

The petition is currently reaching 20,000 signatures and has been up for just about a week. It’s allegedly also the “most active” petition on the site, according to a representative of the site.

The description states that the Xbox One “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.”

This of course is referencing to where Microsoft revealed Xbox One owners would have to connect to the Internet at least once per day. Additionally secondhand sales were slapped with various limitations.

The humorous part is when you go read the comments. The highest voted comment is “I’ll sign to help ps4 so we have no stupid people on the same console as me.”

The petition may have gotten almost 20,000 votes but surely there are many voters who are just plain trolls.
