Microsoft shuts down latest Xbox One DRM rumours - console works "exactly" like the Xbox 360

Problems with Call of Duty: Ghosts offline play related to pre-release code, says Penello

The story is too old to be commented.

So basically an Xbox 360 1.5? Penello also said that he couldn't give a definitive answer which I find very strange.

Yep censorship on n4g, smh you cant post or talk about this:
We can talk about every facet of microsoft drm policies but the subject when discussing sony is taboo despite sites reporting sonys TOS **CHANGED** to this:

"You must not resell either Disc-based Software or Software Downloads, unless expressly authorized by us and, if the publisher is another company, additionally by the publisher.”

Sony is the saviour of the industry!

Only MS could something like that and therefore must have snuck it into Sony Terms of Service. There is no other explanation possible.

has 720p res just like 360 too lol. Maybe this time it can hit 720p without having to upscale to it though.

New account! This poor guy/girl probably has dozens of N4G accounts. The length that some Sony fanboys go, amazes me.

That's what I call dedication... and no personal life.

As for "Microsoft shuts down latest Xbox One DRM rumours - console works "exactly" like the Xbox 360" that's good news, if true.

Based on new functionality and innovation, if the Xbone is 1.5, the. The PS4 is another PS3 remodel.

And why should we believe this with their track record, banning practices, and NDAs?

Thank you!
Why Should they get the benefit of the doubt about anything?

With all the 180 done, false information given, misleading, unjustified banning done until today, it's agreeably easy to say they don't deserve the benefit of doubt.

So what are your choices. You either believe this guy or you wait until Nov 22nd, get yourself an X1 and check it out. But of course you are not interested in what the manufacturer of the console has to say, the rumors are a lot more to your conviction.

SpinalRemains138988d ago

Funny you still allude to them all being rumors.

Everything wound up being 100% accurate. They weren't rumors. They were............oh yeah, facts.

MasterCornholio989d ago

It doesn't work exactly like an Xbox 360 because with an Xbox 360 (I had one so I know) you could play games right out of the box.

They meant exactly as 360 as in they both have a power button and controller;) lol

In terms of DRM genius.

MasterCornholio989d ago

In terms of DRM with the Xbox 360 you can play retail copies out of the box. But with the Xbox One you have to download a patch to mask the Xbox Ones DRM system.

Its good that Microsoft is starting to respond quickly to these rumors and shut them down before they blow up. i just wish they would have learned this lesson sooner.

kiz2694989d ago

I wouldn't really say this has been shut down? Still many questons to be answered around this topic, for one: Why do they have DRM protection this close to Launch when it was months ago they conducted the 180.

MizTv989d ago

That's exactly right
They tryed to push there drm back in June!
That was 6 months ago
Why can't you just play the x1 right out of the box?

BG11579989d ago

They are pushing it right now.
Forza needs the cloud to run the game at 1080p 60fps...
