If you're older than 10, please stop using "M$" to refer to Microsoft.
More importantly, the DRM idea is going to come back to consoles. Microsoft sees it coming, I see it coming, anyone who has dealt with the BS on PC sees it coming, and I'm sure Sony sees it coming, too. MS was just too soon on presenting their plan, IMO, and actually, they added a bunch of useful features to digital distribution that would have allowed sharing games within families. When they dropped the online requirements, I remember several people being upset about losing those additional features.
Yes, it was too soon for the market, especially since disks are still king, but there's no reason to continue crucifying a company for a policy that they changed.
