Xbox does an 180* on their Xbox One DRM policies


The consumers cried and it appears Microsoft heard those cries. The now previous changes to how you experience your games on Xbox 360 will after all be exactly how you enjoy your games content now as Don Mattrick explains in an update filling us in on what is largely an about-face of policy. 

An internet connection will not be required to play offline Xbox One games – After a one-time system set-up with a new Xbox One, you can play any disc based game without ever connecting online again. There is no 24 hour connection requirement and you can take your Xbox One anywhere you want and play your games, just like on Xbox 360.
Trade-in, lend, resell, gift, and rent disc based games just like you do today – There will be no limitations to using and sharing games, it will work just as it does today on Xbox 360.
