This could be the biggest backtrack in gaming history: Microsoft will reverse course on their DRM policies for Xbox One, dropping their Internet requirements and all restrictions on used games, according to the websites WhatHiFi and GiantBomb.

According to both reports, the announcement will be made today.

Citing multiple sources, GiantBomb says Microsoft has decided to remove a laundry list of Xbox One restrictions that customers considered negative:

No more always online requirement
The console no longer has to check in every 24 hours
All game discs will work on Xbox One as they do on Xbox 360
Authentication is no longer necessary
An Internet connection is only required when initially setting up the console
All downloaded games will function the same when online or offline
No additional restrictions on trading games or loaning discs
Region locks have been dropped
My source: Kotaku and All Games Beta

For the people who were against this, would you now consider buying an Xbox One?
For the people that was still going to buy an Xbox One, how do you feel about it now?

I personally wouldn't buy it before and wouldn't buy it now Not a fan of the Xbox and the only new games I want to play are Watch Dogs (which I can play on PC) and Pokemon X Y.
