How to I create an offline profile

i took my xbox one to my friends house, installed the day one update and brought it home.

how can i now play my games offline? it tells me i need an internet connection to create a profile. i just moved house so do not have internet yet?

is it time to take this brick back for a refund as clearly MS lied when they said all you need is a day one patch if i cant create an offline profile.

That's correct, for securirty issues you can't create an offline profile, as it needs to confirm your identity and your account password.

Once you have your account created and the password stored in the console, you can play with your physical games with no problem at all.

Take note also that you can't play downloaded games without internet connection.

Lol!!!  if I could return this junk I would. Looks like ill just buy retail, never buy digital and play on my ps4 for everything but exclusives because lets face it I am not restricted in any way with that console. MS is a joke seriously. Lie to get sales.

no wonder they are being outsold 2 to 1 and when people start to realise all this its going to get a lot worse for MS. I am am adult who doesn't need baby sitting when I play my games nor being told when and when I can not play what I've paid for (regards digital)

Turned my happiness with this console into dissatisfaction in on'y 2 days of owning it.

I shan't buy any console from MS again. Deceptive fraudsters.

Why say you only need day oneatch if it isn't true. Hope they u-turn on this or its going to be a shockingly bad tome for them on the long run as ill definitely be spreading the word to all my friends (who are all gamers) to avoid this junk.

because you need the day 1 patch  which means you have to have an online account

that was heavily advertised did you not read the ads?

having an online account makes your life easier since you can get the patches you need for all games

ps4 also requires a connection to the net due to patches that you have to install for every single game you purchase most games require a patch now

it just doesn't require gold

ps4 requires a paid membership fyi

Why does Xbox one HAVE to confirm your identity and account passwords, but xbox 360 doesn't have to?  It seems like if one can get away with it, the other should be able to as well.

Hey there, Iambeejsmit! The Xbox 360 does confirm identity and passwords. We did a security update towards the end of last year similar to the one that is happening with the Xbox One right now. This thread is a bit old. If you need further assistance, please post up a new thread detailing what you're running into and troubleshooting you've completed. This way our community can get you the individual support that works best on the forums. :)
