UPDATE: Xbox has added an update to the top of their Xbox One FAQ, seen below. Other news sites are reporting from their sources that Microsoft will make an announcement in the next few hours.
From Giant Bomb’s article, here is a break down of what these possible changes mean:
- 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
- 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
What do you think about these possible changes? Does this influence which console you will be buying this fall?
