While there are no sweeping mandatory always-online requirement for Xbox One games, new official Microsoft comments suggest the console will need an internet connection regularly.
When asked by Kotaku how regularly the Xbox One will require an internet connection when playing a single player game, Harrison responded: "I believe it's 24 hours."
When questioned whether the user will need to connect online once every day, Harrison responded: "correct".
Harrison's comments elaborate on information on the official Xbox news site. According to that site, "[Xbox One] does not have to be always connected, but Xbox One does require a connection to the Internet.
"We're designing Xbox One to be your all-in-one entertainment system that is connected to the cloud and always ready. We are also designing it so you can play games and watch Blu-ray movies and live TV if you lose your connection."
