Microsoft has made a spectacular U-turn over its decision to impose restrictions on pre-owned titles on its new Xbox One console. 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 have fun any disc based game with no ever connecting online again.
The company had supposed it
would limit the free trade of pre-owned games, and that an internet connection
was required to play all titles. There is no 24-hour connection requirement and
you can take your Xbox one anyplace you want and play your games, just like on
Xbox 360. The rules apply to games bought as physical discs merely, and do not
affect games downloaded via the online Xbox store.
