Xbox One must connect to the internet once a day for offline gaming

Microsoft has confirmed that Xbox One will need to be connected to the internet at least once every 24 hours for continuous, uninterrupted offline play.

Many people feared this, now Microsoft have confirmed it.

The official blurb on Xbox Wire reads…

With Xbox One you can game offline for up to 24 hours on your primary console, or one hour if you are logged on to a separate console accessing your library. Offline gaming is not possible after these prescribed times until you re-establish a connection, but you can still watch live TV and enjoy Blu-ray and DVD movies.

Do you have an internet connection? What do you think about this announcement?
