Microsoft's sea change on its Xbox One DRM policies yesterday is being celebrated by video game rental company GameFly, which described the news as a "win/win for consumers." In an interview with Joystiq, GameFly co-founder Sean Spector was pleased with the news because Microsoft left the question of being able to rent a game up in the air. Microsoft said that it would address rentals sometime after launch, but did not specify the timing or the particulars related to rentals on the Xbox One console.
"I think the original proposal would have been detrimental to lots of people's [business] systems. Not just GameFly. And, most importantly, gamers," said Spector, who also serves as the company's senior vice president of business development and content.
"Today is a win/win for consumers, as well as GameFly," he added.
