News: Microsoft Removes 24 Hour Check-In, Allows Used Games For Xbox One

After stating on numerous occasions that they would refuse to change their console, Microsoft has chosen to address consumer outrage by removing 24 hour check-ins and allowing game ownership identical to the Xbox 360 model.  Players can trade, lend, gift, sell, and rent games for the Xbox One.  Similar to the PlayStation 3 and 4, the Xbox One will have no regional restrictions.  The intense consumer scrutiny of the Xbox One DRM structure has led to the removal of these controversial features and will hopefully allow the Xbox One to begin competing in the next generation market that is currently dominated by pre-orders for the PlayStation 4.
