Is this still going to require an initial internet connection?

Just curious since im not following it anymore, see if they changed it

They remove the "needed" initial internet connection to set up the Xbox One?

They removed the always online but you still have to be online once to download a patch for the DRM removal.

Nope, still have to connect at least once. At least so far.

Some games (Forza) will similarly need to connect to download the full game, as it cannot be completed in its current state.

They want it finished by launch. The only way this seems possible (apparently) is to release most on disc and provide a download for the rest. The download will be available by the time the game is out, but an Internet connection is required either way if you want to play the game fully.

No, you can play it you just need to download the end of the game as it was made during a time when MS had it's DRM, changed many things and messed up some games that would've relied on it, like Forza.
