Microsoft to Introduce Digital Game Sharing “When the Time is Right”

When the Xbox One was announced, one of the touted features was the ability to share digital titles with ten “family members.” However, when Microsoft backtracked on the console’s online demands, the feature was ditched.

The platform holder has since said that it may return to the idea, if it can “find the right way to bring it back." Overnight, however, Microsoft has reiterated the message, saying that digital sharing "has to be part of the experience.”

Speaking to Gamespot, Xbox director Albert Penello said that, "[Digital sharing] was one of the places that we were actually trying to pioneer. We were trying to implement the ability to trade [and] loan digital games with your friends which is something that no one else was doing." 

"I think we need to do that. That has to be part of the experience.”

"Right now, we're focused on launch and we switched the program back to discs, because that's what customers wanted. I get a lot of mails saying 'god, please bring back the family sharing.' We'd love to figure out how to bring that back. I still think it was a good idea. 

“Maybe it was a little too soon for some people, but I still think there were a lot of good ideas in there. And we'll bring it back when the time is right."
