    Old announced X1 features coming back in the future?

    http://www.escapistmagazine.com/news...e-And-The-Same

    "We're committed to Xbox One in the long run," says Microsoft's corporate VP, Phil Spencer to the Guardian, and that includes Kinect, which Spencer describes as "critical." The Xbone ecosystem just wouldn't be the same without it, and in a separate interview with CVG, Phil Harrison says much the same: "Xbox One is Kinect. They are not separate systems." The biggest developers around have been playing with the Kinect for a while, Spencer argues, and now the independent crowd will get a shot at it too. An "explosion of creativity," Spencer hopes, will be the result. But Microsoft will only benefit from that creativity if everyone understands what's on offer, which means the Kinect has to remain part of the package. If developers started to think that the Kinect wasn't a consistent part of the platform, the creativity tap would turn off.

    Harrison describes his relationship with the Xbox One in slightly mystical terms. "It makes you think about your relationship with technology in a slightly different way," he says. "It's personal. It makes you think, I wish more devices would do this." But for Spencer the Kinect, and all things Xbox One, is firmly tied in to the overall vision, which is focused on the digital ecosystem that Microsoft has been trying to propagate since day one. "Consoles today are as much a service as they are an individual purchase," says Spencer. "Our commitment through Xbox Live and updating the software and keeping the games coming is a long-term service commitment." That's why the whole check-in-once-a-day bit existed in the first place and why, Spencer says, "those advantages will be coming, some at launch and some later."

    Spencer does believe in listening to customer feedback, which is why Microsoft now uses what he describes as "physical DRM" - the disc - as well as digital DRM. But Spencer's clear on one thing: Microsoft wants to create the digital ecosystem that was announced at launch, and which will be coming to all customers eventually. So those of you who wanted to see the next generation console you thought Microsoft was selling will see it eventually. Just not right away.

    Whoah. Maybe a misinterpretation? Maybe he means XBL (non-DRM) advantages? Who knows.

    Kind a scary that they're not really talking it down though.

    #IndieStation4 and proud of it.

    Don't trust Microsoft, I believe once they have enough people on their consoles they will pull the $#@!.

    Great news if this is true. We want those game sharing features back. Hopefully this comes sooner than later.

    As long as their is no online check in then it's all good. My internet goes out at least twice a month for a few days and it would suck to not to be able to use my system during that time.
    It's funny that in this day in age people can steal as long as they have a reason too. Even if that reason is created by the thieves themselves.

    There's only 1 internet company in my city and everyone has problems with it. Nothing we can do about it though.
