Xbox One is DRM Free!

In what could only be described as the biggest backpedaling ever in the gaming industry, Microsoft has changed their DRM policies for the Xbox One. Check below for a list of these changes (courtesy of Giant Bomb) as well as my own personal reaction to the news!

Xbox One is DRM Free!

  • No more always online requirement
  • The console no longer has to check in every 24 hours
  • All game discs will work on Xbox One as they do on Xbox 360
  • An Internet connection is only required when initially setting up the console

  • No additional restrictions on trading games or loaning discs
