Bellow is a copy of the post that Don Mattrick, President, Interactive Entertainment Business posted.
- An internet connection will not be required to play offline Xbox One games –
After a one-time system set-up with a new Xbox One, you can play any
disc based game without ever connecting online again. There is no 24
hour connection requirement and you can take your Xbox One anywhere you
want and play your games, just like on Xbox 360.
- Trade-in, lend, resell, gift, and rent disc based games just like you do today – There will be no limitations to using and sharing games, it will work just as it does today on Xbox 360.
These changes will impact some of the scenarios we previously announced for Xbox One. The sharing of games will work as it does today, you will simply share the disc. Downloaded titles cannot be shared or resold. Also, similar to today, playing disc based games will require that the disc be in the tray.
