Will Wright voices opinion on Microsoft's Xbox One DRM changes

NEWS | ? Comments |

Author: Peter Grimm  

In the wake of Microsoft’s recent policy switcheroo in regards to the Xbox One’s infamous DRM features, many have begun weighing in on the company’s decision, like famed developer Will Wright, who called it “very impressive.”

"From the consumers' point of view, I can really understand a lot of the backlash to DRM," Wright said, speaking to CNN Money. "The fact that if something's required on the Internet that means they can't play it on the airplane or if their Internet connection goes down. It was interesting watching the Microsoft thing. I thought it was very impressive how responsive Microsoft was to that."

So, DRM’s bad then. An understandable sentiment to come from the father of SimCity, don’t you think?

In Wright’s opinion, it was wise of Microsoft to listen to the gamer community, something he believes game companies should do more often, instead of just waiting for feedback from gamers once a game or console is out in the wild. “I tend to think of the fan base, especially the hardcore fan base, as co-developers,” he said.

“To see a company like Microsoft actually sit back, listen, and understand the fans and respond to them is impressive,” Wright added. “For a company that size to be that responsive is great. These companies are the ones that obviously keep us in business and allow us to make games.”
