This is great news! I had a feeling all the negative publicity would get them to change they're minds sooner or later. I don't really care about what IGN says, I mean let's face it, we always knew Microsoft was never the most ethical company(remember all those anti-trust lawsuits they got hit with in the early 2000s?), as long as the games are good, that's all that really matters to me. I will admit while I was willing to put with the DRM and that other stuff, part of me was a bit worried about it, so ultimately i'm glad it's resolved.
Sony dosen't exactly have a good history of integrity either, after the PSN debacle, I would never feel safe trusting any of my personal info with them, so for the time being no PS4 for me. They only got hacked because they tried to go after that one guy who showed how to mod/hack a PS3 and threatened him with legal action, that pissed off the hackers and while they are to blame obviously, Sony has no excuse for having such flimsy security measures and putting thousands of people at risk for data theft due to their negligence. I have no such worries about Live ever getting hacked.
Also we're now hearing about PS3 updates that can brick your system, guess I won't getting one of those anytime soon either.
