Rumor: Next Xbox DRM is up to the individual publisher

Microsoft is also expected to expand the scope of Achievements

Following yesterday's talk of price points and a potential November launch for the next Xbox, Polygon has compiled the latest it's heard about the console. Sources say that yes, there will be an always-online requirement present -- but Microsoft's current plan is reportedly to let publishers decide if they want to require a one-time activation or a constant internet connection.

Other details include revamped Achievements, which -- for once -- actually sounds like a positive rumor about the system. Word on the street is that Achievements can be: introduced after a game's launch and without the need for DLC; tied to broader, limited-time community goals; and span multiple games from the same company.

Microsoft is reportedly working on a DVR-esque feature for capturing game footage with functionality to select highlights and even automatically record in-game events like an Achievement being unlocked. Perhaps most importantly, though, the friends list cap of 100 is said to be a thing of the past.

The next Xbox rethinks DRM, Achievements and Xbox Live friends, our sources say [Polygon]
