Lets say you're one of those hapless people who think that with MS going back on all their DRM policies, you will be fine using the X1 without having internet service. Au contraire, mon frere.

If you cannot download the day one patch due to having no broadband, ALL previous DRM will still be in effect (i.e., games can only be played for 24 hours, you can only trade or sell or give away games once, the camera must be plugged in for the console to work, etc.).

That is all. Now you know and knowing is half the battle. Keep calm and carry on.


I thought the system prior to changes was REQUIRED to be connected to the internet every 24 hours in order to FUNCTION. Either way you look at it if you have no internet the system is a brick.

And I thought all of this required internet connectivity nonsense was out the window.

Damn Microsoft. WHY DO YOU DO THIS?

Quite a few people. Look at a Verizon coverage map, then compare it to the areas with broadband. In my area I am fortunate to be on the main road, otherwise I wouldn't have broadband but the whole area has cell coverage.

If you don't have an Internet connection, and you're buying a console on release date, then there's something wrong with your priorities.

Also, this will most likely only be true for the first batch of consoles. Later batches will most certainly come with the update already installed.

Actually you can buy a game console even if for some reason it won't be connected to the internet, any game console for that matter.
Just not a Xbox One : it does not work.
