Even now, after its unveiling, the Xbox One is a chaotic singularity of mixed messages and warped noise. After an embarrassing slip up that suggested Microsoft would esentially be able to switch off your Xbox One and access to games on command, Larry "Major Nelson" Hryb has moved to assure people that those banned from Xbox LIVE would still have access to their games on Xbox One.
Nelson’s statement arrived after a tweet from last week invited significant backlash as Microsoft seemingly suggested that Microsoft would block your Xbox One games if found yourself on the wrong side of the Xbox LIVE banhammer:
@dohertymark If your account is banned, you also forfeit the licenses to any games that have licenses tied to it as listed in the ToU. ^AC

However, Major Nelson refuted that statement wholeheartedly in a recent Reddit video interview (see above or hit this link to jump to the question). Asked about the reported block on Xbox One games for ban victims, Hryb responded with the following: “Absolutely not, you will always have access to the games you purchase. Absolutely not.” He then suggested that you'd only find yourself banned from multiplayer.
The Xbox Support channel also published a mini-retraction of sorts:
@amigocesar We have no info on the Xbox One ban situation. The Tweet that is being referenced was a mistake, it was about Xbox 360. ^CW
