Besides, what is going to stop them from changing their mind again a few months after the console is released? This was their original plan after all... am I right? What if this is their last resort kind of idea to get fans to change their minds, buy the Xbox One and then have them turn another 180? Granted, those are "what if" scenarios, but again.. this is Microsoft we're talking about. The same company that said, "Deal with it" and "buy a 360 if you want to play offline".
Time will tell. Either way, the fans have spoken and this is good news for all the gamers in the world. I'm still however, making the switch. Too little too late Microsoft. Thanks anyway.
