Microsoft pull an XBox 180...

Platforms: Android | Microsoft Xbox One

Microsoft have today announced that they have made changes to their policies regarding the always online requirements and the restrictions on lending and trading disc based games. In today's update they have announced:

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.

And with that two of the biggest barriers to Xbox One ownership have been lifted. Hopefully it'll be enough to turn the increasingly worrying looking launch on its head.
