Update to previous post! Excessive DRM/check-in requirements on Microsoft’s upcoming XBox One removed.

It seems that Microsoft have been listening (though it might be more accurate to say that they finally got tired of sticking their fingers in their ears and shouting “lalalaIcan’thearyou”) – the onerous DRM-motivated requirements mentioned in the last post have been removed. Details are in the updates to that post, since they provide the context to the broader discussion.

There’s some good discussion of the changes on game developer site Gamasutra.
