The Latest Xbox Update Brings The Precious End Of DRM

It has taken longer than we would like, but our extensive proverb says that “it is never too late… if happiness is good”. The latest major update to Xbox Series X and Xbox Series S finally ends DRM in Xbox One games.

Going into detail, to date, if a player wanted to play Xbox One games on Xbox Series, he had no choice but to go through the online “registration”. Explained another way: When you put the Xbox One disc inside the Xbox Series, the console had to do an online check to be used. Therefore, if there was no Internet connection, then we could not play that game.

Thanks to update 2208 this is over for good, so now you don’t need to be connected to the Internet to play our Xbox One games. It may seem like an absurd move, but it manages to remove a huge barrier at the level of backward compatibility, not to mention how it increases the preservation and conservation of video games.

Eden Marie, an engineer at Xbox, explained on her Twitter account: “We examined the information since the launch of Xbox Series and concluded that online verification is not necessary in the vast majority of cases for Xbox One games. Some games may still need an online update after installation to ensure a better experience.”

And the September-October

Everything related to DRM has to do with the update released in August-September, but this does not stop and we already have the September-October update with us.

According to published information, this latest update improves the visibility of the Xbox Series and Xbox One Complete Library section. In other words: now we can see our complete catalog of video games organized in a simpler way and by categories.

For example, with this update, we will be able to determine which games belong to Game Pass, to EA Play, and which ones are ready to install or even have the possibility of playing in the cloud. In addition, you will also be able to choose where you want to install the games by default.

In addition to this important improvement at the interface level on consoles, from now on we can also activate noise suppression in Xbox voice chat; added a new button to create Parties in the Xbox app; and the ability to change the color of the Xbox button on the Xbox Elite Wireless Controller Series 2 has been included.

As you have seen, the September-October updates may seem minor (the interface one is very useful), but the August-September update completely changes everything by removing the DRM.
