    This thread is for people to ask what acronyms mean that they are unfamiliar with. And to start off:

    What's DRM? I saw something online about it in relation to the xbone but I have no idea what DRM stands for.

    Digital Rights Management. It is a way for companies to try and stop pirating, but is known to go too far and cause issues for honest consumers. The Xbox One was going to force a once a day online check to make sure everything you were playing was valid. They removed it, but to be honest, most game practically require you to be online to start them these days.
