    • Microsoft has started listening to the criticisms its fan base have raised.
    • Competition for Middle Eastern version of Angry Bird Land heats up.
    • The Dragon Age 3: Inquisition trailer, reveals their ambitious open-world design.
    • Walk Free’s Mario parody game can be played here, it asks Nintendo to be public about where it gets its minerals from.

    Here’s the new episode of Nerdy News!

    What do you think?

    Do the recent policy changes prove to you that Microsoft is listening to the gaming community about the Xbox One? Is it enough to convince you to buy a One at launch? Does the unrest in the Middle East cause you to discount the area when considering an overseas vacation? Do you approve of the changes to the Dragon Age formula? How important is it to know more about the materials used to create your electronics?

      I am glad MS changed policy but they could have done things much better. I don’t know why things cant work both ways. A disc should be able to be put in any console and played, period. For downloaded games, why does the console have to continuously check on them? Why cant it simply go by the last data it has? I can understand that my console would have to be online at the time I
      try to lend a game and that is fine with me. I don’t expect to be able
      to take mine offline, then lend all the games to a friend and play them on
      his and my offline console. If I lend a digital download to a friend, then go offline, that game should be marked “out” and I simply cant play it until I reconnect and get an update saying the friend no longer has it.

      Microsoft didnt listen !@#$ to us!
      What happened was no one was buying the Xbox One so they had no choice to make the ecosystem open like on Xbox 360 again

      You know what’s up qqq1!
      MS should have kept their policies for the digital downloads only, because it did have some nice re-selling and family sharing benefits. Now we cant even be offline for more than 10 minutes if we buy the digital game, it’s like this on 360 and on xbone now too. They made it worse even though they already had the technology read, it makes no sense. :(
