Report: Microsoft to remove DRM/Always Online for the Xbox1

This could be the biggest backtrack in gaming history: Microsoft will reverse course on their DRM policies for Xbox One, dropping their Internet requirements and all restrictions on used games, according to the websites WhatHiFi and GiantBomb.

According to both reports, the announcement will be made today.

Citing multiple sources, GiantBomb says Microsoft has decided to remove a laundry list of Xbox One restrictions that customers considered negative:

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
Authentication is no longer necessary
An Internet connection is only required when initially setting up the console
All downloaded games will function the same when online or offline
No additional restrictions on trading games or loaning discs
Region locks have been dropped



Since they revealed the Xbox One in May, Microsoft has faced non-stop criticism for announced policies that could drastically change the way we play games in the future. The Xbox One, they said, would require players to connect to the Internet once every 24 hours in order to keep the box playing games. You would have to activate each game by registering it on the web before playing. The console would also restrict the way that game discs are traded, borrowed, and shared, limiting the number of people who could own and play each game, and restricting trade-ins on a publisher-by-publisher basis.

Microsoft has justified these policies by saying that these moves are consistent with a shift to digital seen on Steam, iTunes and other digital platforms.


By reversing on those policies, Microsoft calls a lot of things into question: what will become of the Xbox One's family sharing plan? Will publishers find other ways to block used games? And what of all the rhetoric of how "the bits"—the data on each game disc, rather than the discs themselves—are the future?

We've reached out to Microsoft for comment but have not heard back yet.

I think the options were explained well, then the consumers explained what they wanted.

Now there are rumors floating around that the Kinect will not be required for the Xbone anymore but they aren't planning on lowering the price.

Clearly this guy doesn't understand what the consumers were upset about. And telling us that the Family share is nothing more than a 15-45min Demo is suppose to make us feel better? WTF?

Nothing they could do would make me buy their system before the PS4 at this point.

Well now that makes perfect sense!

There is no way they would get away with selling an inferior spec'd system than the PS4 for $100 more without the addition of Kinect.

EDIT: After clicking the link he updated with a response from Microsoft...

Are you always this emotional about everything?

I wasn't talking about your decision, only the expression of it.

I guess the Sony Store had a price mistake earlier today on the other anticipated title Two Souls. It was up there for $35 for a short time. Wish I had seen it.

My Last of Us disk arrives on Tuesday. Can't. Friggin. Wait.

I'm sure it will be available to download on the PS4 once they get their cloud streaming service worked out.

I believe that is coming next year, I also hope they put up the Uncharted series as I have not had a chance to play that either.

I'm curious if they will find a way for people that already own those ps3 games to forgo having to pay for it again on PS4. Not holding my breath but it sure would be nice.
