Microsoft’s Xbox 180: Upcoming Xbox One to drop DRM restrictions, internet requirement after public backlash

June 19th, 2013 at 4:48 PM
Microsoft Xbox One DRM Reversal

Microsoft has caved to the hordes of angry gamers who have been loudly complaining about its policies for used games and connectivity requirements for its upcoming Xbox One console. Microsoft has updated its Xbox One page to announce changes in its Digital Rights Management (DRM) policies. Users will no longer have to connect to the Internet every 24 hours to play games and restrictions on used games have been significantly eased. Now users will be required to connect to the web just once while setting up their Xbox and won’t be required to check in every 24 hours to play disc-based games. Microsoft also says that gamers can “trade-in, lend, resell, gift, and rent disc based games just like you do today” and that “there will be no limitations to using and sharing games, it will work just as it does today on Xbox 360.”
