Xbox One Drops DRM Policies

/ Jun 19th, 2013 1 Comment

New Xbox One Model

[adsense250itp]Xbox One will not require online connection check-ins and will not restrict used games, Microsoft announced.

The announcement is a complete reversal of policy for Microsoft — policy that was met with great disdain throughout the gaming industry.

“As a result of feedback from the Xbox community, we have changed certain policies for Xbox One,” a statement on the Q & A page of the official Xbox website reads.

In a post on the official site, Xbox President Don Mattrick outlined the changes in Xbox One policy. Mattrick stated the Xbox team listened to direct feedback and read comments that reshaped the future of Xbox One.

Xbox One will not require an always-on Internet connection and will no longer have to check in to an online connection once every 24 hours. An Internet connection will still be required only during the initial setup of Xbox One.

Used games will now function on Xbox One the same as they do for Xbox 360. Game discs will work in the same way and will not be connected to any form of license. The console will no longer require authentication to play a game disc. There are no additional restrictions on trading games or borrowing game discs.

In addition, games downloaded by Xbox One owners will function without an online connection. Players will not have to be online to access their downloaded games library. Xbox One games will be available for download the same day as they launch at retailers. Gamers will have access to all downloaded games regardless if connected.

Xbox One region locks have been also been dropped under the new policy.

The announcement is expected to be a giant leap forward for Xbox One in a battle just beginning with Sony’s PlayStation 4.

Microsoft made no announcement regarding any changes in policy regarding game publishing on Xbox One.

    They said it’s because they care about gamers yet they only changed it after Sony took a big swing at them. They obviously don’t care about the gamer, only the gamers wallets. They were full and ready to nickle and dime everyone until we were broke, then they realized Sony was going to steal a lot of consumer base and that some of us multi-console players were going to just stick with Sony.
