Xbox One discs finally playable offline after changes to unpopular Xbox Series X DRM

Microsoft has confirmed that a recent Xbox Series X update has changed a controversial DRM feature, and you can now play Xbox One discs on the new-gen console without requiring an internet connection.

Since the launch of the Xbox Series X, the console has required an internet connection in order for you to play Xbox One games on retail discs. Even if you had that disc installed on the console, you would need to be connected to the internet to actually launch the game. (This isn’t technically a problem for S Series consoles, as they don’t have a disc drive at all.)
