About the Xbox One FAQ
Xbox one is a video game console developed and marketed by Microsoft. Since the console was the center of attention, there have been many questions surrounding it. These are some of the frequently asked questions about the console:
Does the console require an internet connection?
No, you do not need an Internet connection to use the console. In fact, you can play the games offline indefinitely.
The only time you will be asked to connect the console to the Internet is when you remove the DRM policy. Here you will be asked to connect to Xbox Live once and then download a patch that will remove the old DRM policy. After doing this, you will not be prompted to reconnect to the Internet.
Does the console block used games?
No. The console works like all other gaming platforms. Once you’ve played a game, the game remains on the console and you can loan the discs to your friends. You can also sell, trade, and even rent the records to anyone interested.
Will my Xbox Live account be transferred to Xbox One?
Yes. Once you have connected the two accounts, your Xbox Live Gold account and your current subscription will transfer to Xbox One and become one account. The unfortunate thing is that you will be required to pay for a new generation of Xbox Live Gold account.
Is Xbox one backward compatible with Xbox 360 games?
No. Xbox one and Xbox 360 are designed differently, so backward compatibility is impossible.
Do Xbox 360 accessories work on Xbox One?
No. Since the two consoles are not backward compatible, you will not be able to use the X360 accessories on Xbox one. Xbox one games use new Xbox controllers that offer special features that X360 controllers cannot.
Do you need to connect the kinect?
Kinect is a vital feature on Xbox one and a new and improved Kinect comes with every new system. No, you do not need to connect the Kinect to play; however, most of the console’s great features are usually available when you plug it in.
This means that if you want to access the great features, you have to connect the Kinect to your consoles.
Is the Xbox One region free?
Yes, the console has no regions, so any region will work on any Xbox one console; therefore, you can import any of your favorite games and play them on the console.
