All Digital Is Awesome
The team working on the Xbox One home console at Microsoft says that many of the features that were initially associated with the next-gen consoles are still being explored, despite the fact that the company has not talked about them officially since 2013.
Speaking in a Gamertag Radio podcast, Phil Spencer, the leader of the division dealing with the gaming platform, says that developers are constantly looking for ways to improve the long-term user experience.
He states, “We looked at the digital features that we had talked about last year and as a gamer, there were a lot of those features that I think really resonated and were smart features for people who really have a lot of games and maybe play on a couple consoles or have bunch of people in the house or want to share with friends.”
All of the ideas are still on the roadmap for firmware updates for the Xbox One, but it’s unclear when they might actually be released.
Spencer says that the problem at the moment is that game disks features Digital Rights Management solutions and they need to be removed or bypassed in order for a family sharing feature to work properly.
Can't wait for this feature and this is what MSoft should have been talking up since the beginning. I also have a feeling that this feature will be behind LIVE.
