If you thought Microsoft wasn't being too controlling with Windows 10, here's something that might change your mind. Microsoft can legally prevent you from playing counterfeit games on your Windows 10 PC.
According to the agreement that you must accept before installing the OS:
"We may automatically check your version of the software and download software updates or configuration changes, including those that prevent you from accessing the Services, playing counterfeit games, or using unauthorised hardware peripheral devices."
We haven't yet heard of any counterfeit games or unauthorized hardware peripheral that have stopped working so far on Windows 10 due to some update. And while we do not support installing pirated games or software on your computers, it really doesn't seem it is any of Microsoft's business to decide what their users can install on their computer after paying for the software. Unfortunately, they can legally do that due to the agreement that we all tend to blindly accept before installing something.
They have their way to break into your computer too. Like other says, this is for Xbox Live and Windows Store games, not the Win32 games. I doubt Microsoft will do anything though. They want to put everything in EULA just in case.
My experience is totally opposite of you. Some steam games that I buy are messes with damn drm. If sometimes my internet is down, I can't play the damn game that I own. So I pirate those game that annoy the hell out of you.
please update this blog post. This is related to Microsoft services and games only. If you're going to post facebook news feeds, please post the other more updated news feeds too.
