Microsoft to remove DRM from Xbox One

By  •  News

Xbox One

It isn’t very often that our voices are heard, but it looks like Microsoft has been listening to consumer outcry, and has decided to remove most of the DRM features from the Xbox One. This info has been confirmed, and we’ll update this post as soon as the official details come from Microsoft.

Update: Xbox Wire has updated the Q&A confirming the reversal of the Xbox One’s DRM policies, originally reported by Giant Bomb. Here’s the official quote:

“Last week at E3, the excitement, creativity and future of our industry was on display for a global audience.

“For us, the future comes in the form of Xbox One, a system designed to be the best place to play games this year and for many years to come. As is our heritage with Xbox, we designed a system that could take full advantage of advances in technology in order to deliver a breakthrough in game play and entertainment. We imagined a new set of benefits such as easier roaming, family sharing, and new ways to try and buy games. We believe in the benefits of a connected, digital future.

“Since unveiling our plans for Xbox One, my team and I have heard directly from many of you, read your comments and listened to your feedback. I would like to take the opportunity today to thank you for your assistance in helping us to reshape the future of Xbox One.
