Xbox One Always Online DRM was met strongly opposed by gamers when it was first announced that Xbox One would require you to be always connected to the internet to play games. The reaction was so strong that Microsoft were forced to listen, and reversed the DRM policies that were initially proposed.
One company that refuses to listen to the gamers is 2k who have just released a patch that requires the exact DRM that Microsoft did a U-turn on. This doesn't only affect Xbox One owners though, this is enforced on the PS4 also.
As of today you will be required to stay connected to the internet whilst playing NBA2K14 on either of the next-gen consoles.
2k have made this decision in an attempt to protect their micro-transactions from exploits.
If you loose connection now whilst playing any mode that uses 2K Virtual Coins ( VC ) you will be immediately kicked back to the main menu where you will have the option to play MyCareer and MyGM until you re-connect to the 2K servers.
Bit of a sneaky stunt for 2K to pull, to wait until the game has launched and then sneak in the DRM patch with no forewarning.
I wonder how many other companies will follow suit, or if Gamers are willing to stand for such sly tactics.
The coins can be exploited via a glitch in the game, isn't that down to the developers to ensure the games are solid before release?
