Microsoft changed its controversial stance on always-on connectivity and game DRM on Wednesday, a reversal that comes after more than a week of harsh criticism from consumers, press and especially competitors.
The move comes just a few months before the console is set to hit store shelves, and is widely-viewed as reactionary. Rival Sony, which priced and further detailed its PlayStation 4 console at E3 last week, made waves for not having DRM on its games, as well as coming in $100 less than Microsoft's $499 Xbox One.
Of course, it's not the first reversal by Microsoft following backlash, nor is Microsoft alone. Nearly every technology company -- big and small -- has changed stances on products or policy at some point. Click on the slideshow below to get started on 12 notable tech take backs in recent years.
