Microsoft Turns 180 On Xbox One DRM Policy

In the expected aftermath of the public relations nightmare that Microsoft had to live through, some very intelligent decisions were made regarding the used-game policies and online checking of the Xbox One. Now  the Xbox One will not require a ping to check for an online connection every 24 hours, and you can play single player games offline just as you can now with your Xbox 360, and there aren't any restrictions on sharing, borrowing, buying, or selling used games. First Microsoft tried to stick to their guns about the drastic changes in policy, and then the community outcry was a cacophony of disapproval and they quickly changed their minds about not letting gamers play games. Seems like a smart move so far.
