A thought occurred to me over the weekend. Now, Microsoft has really made strides to win people over after the shit-show that was.. well, everything since it was announced. Now these strides we know about. "We" being those who keep up with gaming news. But what about those who don't?



I recently visited my extended family and had a discussion with one of my cousins. He's the type of guy who loves games but only really plays 3 or 4 a year. He told me he has no intention of getting an Xbox One because of their DRM policies n all that. When I told him they were reversed he seemed shocked. Apparently, he had no idea. This inspired me to ask a few more people. People who like games but rarely play them. 

Most of them seem to know about the DRM policies. This makes perfect sense, for when the news reached a fever-pitch it was on CNN, CNBC, various military and civilian newspaper. Near everywhere. The reversal news hasn't seen the same exposure. Many people I asked had no idea anything had changed with Microsoft.

Because of the vast difference in media exposure is what Microsoft has been doing too little too late in terms of a successful launch? They've clearly won over some of the more informed gamers but what about those who buy their games based on basic tv ads and what their friends tell them is good? I'd love to hear your thoughts in the comments as I've come to believe this is the case.

What a day for blogs. Top sauce was a tough one.
