XBOX One Policy Changes!

Victory is ours! Victory is ours. Great day in the morning, People, Victory is ours. We drink from the keg of glory. Bring us the finest muffins and bagels in all the land!

 Too much? Yeah, too much... But Microsoft's recent announcement does bring some very good news.

Last month, Microsoft surprised everyone with the unveiling of the XBOX One; their brand new console focused on being a complete entertainment system. It certainly surprised people, but not necessarily in the way that the company was expecting. Tight policies such as the 24 hour checks, restriction of used games, and restrictions on game trading turned away and even alienated a large portion of the target market. The response? A pretty aggressive consumer response. Even Sony had so much fun attacking Microsoft's campaign at E3 with a trailer on how you can trade PS4 games and a portion of their conference dedicated to taking the rival down which ended with a standing ovation...

HOWEVER! A new change in policy makes the consoles pretty much on equal ground....

A little while ago Microsoft announced the following changes to their XBOX One policy:

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.
