"Policy decisions are still being finalised" says Microsoft

Microsoft’s Major Nelson has attempted to deflect criticism of its still mysterious pre-owned policy by claiming that key decisions have not yet been made.

"We are months away from the launch of Xbox One and policy decisions are still being finalised," he wrote on Twitter. "When they are, we will let you know."

The statement came as the company continues to endure some sometimes quite severe criticism for its lack of transparency over both pre-owned games and the console’s online requirements.

These were the two biggest questions surrounding the console even before it was announced – that Microsoft planned to simply deflect questions and avoid giving precise and consistent answers remains baffling.

Will we get any answers at E3 in a couple of weeks? Don’t hold your breath.
