We're excited to announce that we've fully migrated the Xbox Forums to their new home, here on the Microsoft Community forums!
As of today, going to forums.xbox.com will redirect you here to the Xbox area of the Community forums. We've moved all of your existing threads over so you can continue and start conversations with the new forums experience.
We sincerely appreciate the feedback you have provided over this transition and can't wait for you to check out the new Xbox Forums!
Before the always-online/24 hour decision reversal was made this was the concept put in place. You were supposed to be able to install the the game disc once and then you would have a digital copy in place on your console. Within 24 hours your console had
to connect to the live servers to validate the games you owned. Since the always online/24 hour concept was nuked it seems as though the install is still required but serves no benefit now for disc owners.
Did this solve your problem?
Sorry this didn't help.
