-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.

There will also be no region lock. The Xbox One might be a viable console now. Good to see Microsoft got smart Smile

Only thing that may suck is we many not get the ability to share the digital content now which would have been super. Oh well. I did say it may be too soon to go the digital route. I guess you can't have everything

You can still access the digital content from anywhere, you just have to buy the digital content. If you buy a disc, you need the disc, just like on the Xbox 360.

Why Microsoft couldn't have left in the option to store your game disc to your hard drive and use it anywhere, I don't know. That way, people that are ok with the DRM stuff could still use that feature, while others wouldn't have to worry about it.

Then the article would be inaccurate, if you had a Playstation you would have known by now we have been sharing games digitally a long time ago LOL.

But anyways Steam is also hopping on the bandwagon from what I found out for sharing games digitally but by the looks of the code from the beta release, it is still a one person per license deal with the ability to control how long you want to share it but its something in the right direction.
