As for DRM I am positive it will be back. Just not right away. Besides the fact that they plan on using the Cloud to help run games in the future, I am positive they said they don't plan on abandoning the always online entirely. I want to say they worded it just right so that they could come back to it at a later time.
I'm not gonna lie I was one of the many that was passed off about it. Only because I can't afford Internet at home (using my phone and Tapatalk at the moment). But the more I learn about what Microsoft's entire vision is, it makes sense. Yet at the same time a little scary. Even if/when they switch back to an always online state all you have to do is unplug the damned thing.
The only thing I would suggest is that when/if they do switch to an always online is that they at least make it so you can use the basic functions of the system without an Internet connection. Like play games, watch DVDs/Blu-rays, use the music player and use the Kinect. Essentially make it like the 360. The fact you need a mandatory update just to do the basic functions it ridiculous. But for any of the higher functions, then yeah, make it so it requires the internet. Does that make sense?
Edit: Nothing happens. Just stays with the first account.

Got my Xbox One today. Trying to get my Internet connection date pushed up to this week. I know I said I wanted the PS4 first but I could only afford one right now. So I went with the XB1 because of Halo.
