A Change.org petition calling on Microsoft to reinstate its controversial Xbox One policies is gaining steam. The online petition currently has more than 18,000 supporters, up from just over 1,000 only two days ago.
The petition is boosting traffic for Change.org, a representative for the site told GameSpot. The campaign is the "most active" petition on the site right now, with a full 4 percent of all people visiting Change.org viewing the petition, the representative said.
"This was to be the future of entertainment. A new wave of gaming where you could buy games digitally, then trade, share or sell those digital licenses," the petition reads. "Essentially, it was Steam for Xbox. But consumers were uninformed, and railed [sic] against it, and it was taken away because Sony took advantage of consumers [sic] uncertainty."
Under the terms of Microsoft's original Xbox One policies, users were required to connect to the Internet once per day. In addition, secondhand sales saw various limitations.
Microsoft has yet to publicly acknowledge the petition.
When Microsoft reversed these policies last month, the company also ditched the Xbox One's family sharing plan--which was to allow users to share their games library with up to 10 family members on any Xbox One.
