Microsoft have officially announced that it is removing all DRM policies from the Xbox One.
Gamers will now be able to trade-in used games and they will only need an internet connection once to set up the console. Gamers can also play games offline.
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.
The region lock of the console also have lifted, so you can play games anywhere in the world.
Gamers, Microsoft have listened, and you have won.
