let me talk about the prisoner’s dilemma for a bit
For those of you who never got to the kashyyk level in kotor, the prisoner’s dilemma goes like this: you and some other dude are both accused of a crime. If you say he did it and he admits to doing it, he gets five years and you go free. If you admit and he accuses you, you get five years and he goes free. If you both admit, you both get three years.

What’s happening with the xbox one’s policies and the ps4’s supposed opposition to them is the same thing. While the xbox one’s DRM and bandwidth requirements are in no way consumer friendly, they both, in some way, lead to a better future: the DRM removes a reason to buy physical games and brings us steps closer to an all-digital future, which gives developers a better cut of the profit (not to mention removing a lot of the need for publishers), lowers game costs and is just a lot more convenient than leaving your home to buy something. Likewise, the bandwidth requirement, assuming everyone rolls in on it, brings a push for better internet speeds for all, because otherwise our glorfied netflix boxes are worthless.
