Microsoft’s Xbox One No Longer Requires 24-Hour Online Check-in + Vastly Improved DRM Policy


Dear ladies and gentlegeeks, I’m happy to report that Microsoft has changed its position on the XBox One DRM policy, meaning that you will be able to trade-in, lend, resell, gift, and rent disc based games just like you do today on your 360. The console also no longer requires a 24-hour online check-in to play games, which will now be region-free. The only time you’ll need to connect is at system set-up. That’s it! Yay!

The Xbox One has a new unofficial name: the Xbox One-Eighty ;).

Microsoft, thank you so much for listening to your fans.
