Trending: After-party at Jeff Bezos’ D.C. mansion attracts Bill Gates, Ivanka Trump and other notable guests

xboxEarlier this afternoon, Microsoft surprised the tech world by reversing its stance on some Xbox One policies that had angered many gamers for the past few weeks and gave Sony firepower to poke fun at its rival.

Now, you won’t need to connect to the Internet once every 24 hours like Microsoft originally planned. Nor will there be any restrictions on sharing, trading or renting games.

People are sounding off left and right with their opinions, so we thought we’d fire up a poll to see if the new changes are enough to want an Xbox One. Or, on the flipside, maybe you liked the original policies are are pissed with today’s news.

If you have an opinion that doesn’t quite resonate with the poll answers, feel free to sound off in the comments.
