Microsoft backtracks on some of its idiotic XBox One policies

Surprise, surprise. Microsoft has already started backtracking on some of its less enlightened policies for the XBox One.

The changes are:

  • An Internet connection will not be required to play any disc-based game. As with the XBox 360, disc-based games can only be played with the disc in the console.
  • There will not be a requirement to connect to the Internet every 24 hours.
  • There will be no limitations on how games can be shared, loaned, resold or traded, except that you cannot do any of those things with downloaded games.
  • You will be able to play downloaded games offline.
  • There will be no regional restrictions limiting where games can be played.

Never underestimate the power of the Internet.
