Xbox One: Microsoft aware of anti-DRM campaigns, is listening to concerns

Xbox One's pre-owned charge and Kinect DRM policy have caused quite a stir in the gaming world, and Microsoft's Major Nelson has responded to gamers, suggesting that the company is definitely listening.

It followed rumours that Sony is now considering similar pre-owned safeguards, such as charging gamers a fee to run used games. It sparked a mass Twitter campaign that saw gamers tweeting Sony execs in protest of the alleged strategy.

Over on the Major Nelson blog, one fan wrote, "The entire world is watching Twitter explode. The campaign for no DRM is in full swing. Sony noticed and they're tweeting in response. I hope Microsoft does too."

Major Nelson - aka Larry Hyrb- replied, "We're fully aware of what is going on. I am also working on a few things to address it. I can't say much more right now. But we ARE listening."

The latest rumour suggests gamers will have to pay a £35 charge on top of a used game's cost in order to activate it. Check out our report here.
