Details On Game Sharing With Xbox One Revealed Thanks to Xbox Employee Blog

When Microsoft announced yesterday that they were backpedaling a bit on their always-online and DRM policies for the Xbox One, you could almost hear the collective cheers across the world for consumers and Xbox fans. It would seem that if consumers are happy, and therefore they are now buying your products, then the company itself would be happy. As revealed in one Xbox employee's blog, that isn't entirely the case. In fact, this one employee laments Microsoft's ruling quite heavily.
However, this isn't the most interesting tidbit that came out in the blog post. The employee laid out more details on Microsoft's family sharing plan, which actually ended up sounding worse than it originally did from the conference. It originally seemed that sharing would lend someone the digital game for a set period of time one time and one time only. It turns out that this mode of sharing was really just a demo of the game that other users could save.
That's not exactly my idea of lending a game to a friend or a family member. Even e-books let you read the book all the way through within the lending time period (about 2 weeks).
