Andre "Swami" Weingarten got his Xbox One early due to a mistake by retailer Target. A whole lot came out of that -- an unboxing video, a temporary ban, and an upcoming trip to the Xbox One launch event. The early consoles have all been banned from Xbox Live until closer to release, but Weingarten had said he was unable to play Call of Duty: Ghosts at all (that is, offline). This raised some concerns regarding the Xbox One's initial DRM plans.

Microsoft's product planning director Albert Penello addressed these concerns: "This behaviour is only because we are in pre-release. When we launch, console will work exactly as you expect today on 360.

"For sure this has nothing to do with requiring a connection. There is no 'DRM removal' in the Day One update because none of the consoles were ever built with that stuff in it. This also has nothing to do with COD. The Day One update just brings the SW up to date with the latest versions vs. what's on the box. But there is no 24 check in, that's for sure."

So, if you were worried at all, you can cease your worrying.Unless you're worrying because of that dystopic Xbox One hype trailer from earlier, in which case, carry on.

While playing CoD: Advanced Warfare, we posit that Nintendo hates condoms

We're now reaching the point in our Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare play session where Max thinks critically about the game's narrative mechanics and then we talk about condoms for like five minutes.more

Max and I have hippie liberal hipster opinions about CoD: Advanced Warfare

Max and I were playing Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare while hungover, and started devolving into dumber and dumber jokes, and then Max busts out a term like "jingoistic proto-fascism" because we're a couple of San Francisco hipsters who definitely don't have informed, individually refined opinions about things because the world is a vampire and everything is fake.more

We were playing CoD: Advanced Warfare, but we wanted to hang with Stephan at the skate park

Max and I continue to fumble around in Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare, as our minds wander to some predictably stupid places. We talk about meeting an imaginary teen named Stephan at the skate park, how to find "The Boob," and aggravatingly stupid YouTube comments.more
