Games rental service GameFly is also pretty chuffed that Microsoft has changed its DRM policies.

“I always felt good about the future of GameFly, but I feel better today,” GameFly co-founder ean Spector told Joystiq.

“Today is a win/win for consumers, as well as GameFly. I think choice is always important and now consumers have more choice. And I give [Microsoft] credit for listening to their consumers.

“I think the original proposal would have been detrimental to lots of people’s [business] systems. Not just GameFly. And, most importantly, gamers. Based on what I’ve read today, which is all I know today, it’s business as usual for Xbox. Their statement is really cut and dry.”

GameFly plans to have Xbox One and PlayStation 4 listings up on the rental site sometime towards the end of the summer.

“It’s a good day for gamers,” Spector added, confirming that GameFly expects to haver next-gen game listings on its service within the next few months.
