[UPDATE] No one really quite sure what the Xbox One has in store for always online and used games

At today's big Xbox One press conference, it was revealed by Microsoft representatives that the controversial "always-online" feature would not be implemented with the Xbox One. It was also stated that the Xbox One would restrict used games in some way.

Later in the day, it was reported by Kotaku that, even though the Xbox One would not require you to be constantly connected, it would require you to connect to the internet at least once every 24 hours for your games to function. As to the used games, it was apparently stated that used games would be restricted to one person's account, but could be used by another person with a fee--similar to EA's controversial online pass.

Now, it seems, all of that where simply "potential scenarios" for things that could happen. So, your guess is as good as mine as to what the Xbox One actually has in store for us gamers when it comes out. Stay tuned for future contradictions.


Adam Sessler, of Rev3Games, managed to clear up a few of the more contested stories that are revolving around the Xbox One since the press conference in this interview with Matt Booty, General Manager of Redmond Games Studios.
