Forza 5 has been added to the bundle.


The person who designed Halo MCC servers also did the microsoft store servers. Enjoy!

The MS store shitting the bed during a bf sale is a holiday tradition, like turkey dinners and festivus poles.

I didn't think my post about "feeling stupid for spending so much on a 64gb card" would be the start of all of this.

Not your fault. Fanboys are always on the look-out to proclaim their love to their preferred inanimate object.

So it definitely shares a trophy list with the PS3 version, right?

Yup, it's been confirmed on neogaf and reddit.

i think i want to be done with PSN store deals.

they should say "ok, this is EXACTLY when the sale is going to end, so get what you want before XX:XX"

i got a 20 dollar PSN card to buy MGS HD on vita and Tactics Ogre, still on sale from what my Vita said.

got errors trying to put them into my card so i called support and they said "oh, its because the store is updating"


thanks sony, instead of giving me a strict time table to work with so i could get what i wanted, no i have to wonder what to buy with 20 dollars when the things i want aren't on sale now =/

Bastards! They should give us like a week or something to get in on these deals.

Again, how can you say that? Because your believing 100% a anonymous source.


Please dont state things as facts when clearly they arent, it just makes you look gullible. 


The bottom line is, we will never know the truth about it until such a time as Xbox One 2 (or whatever they call it, lol) and it maybe comes again. All the rumor/speculation is just that... rumor/speculation. Of course those who were against it are going to attempt to state it as fact, but it certainly isnt.


I don't know whether that anonymuous source is correct or not. Or if it even is a legit MS employee. What I do know is that what is said by that person sounds alot more realistic than what the xone enthusiast were saying, in that one person buys a game and can share it with 10 other people, as if the publishers and devs preferred this to used games.

Reading the MS Employee seems a bit.. off. Like hes taking several direct talking points from /r/Xboxone and actually copy pasting them in, so no, I'm not sure how accurate it is.


However, did I expect it to be the be all end all? Of course not. I kind of expected it to be 1+1 and that was it, only one other person at a time playing. Which I would have been ecstatic with.


It's a bit too late now though. Since its on pastebin, it all must be true, and will be true in gamers minds. Therefor, it really was a 1 hour demo regardless of what it "actually" was.


If you go back, read my posts, and others on here. We never said the article was true, just that it was reasonable.


Exactly. The only reason we're commenting on an anonymous source is because no one at MS ever went into detail as to how exactly the trading and sharing system were going to work. We were only given a basic outline.


And now the people who filled in the blanks with the best case scenarios are dissapointed about features that If you looked at it with common sense and in a calm level-headed manner, were not going to be all that great.

An anonymous poster claiming to be part of Microsoft's Xbox One team has posted a statement on Pastebin explaining their frustration over Microsoft's backtracking.


First is family sharing, this feature is near and dear to me and I truly felt it would have helped the industry grow and make both gamers and developers happy.  The premise is simple and elegant, when you buy your games for Xbox One, you can set any of them to be part of your shared library.  Anyone who you deem to be family had access to these games regardless of where they are in the world.  There was never any catch to that, they didn't have to share the same billing address or physical address it could be anyone.  When your family member accesses any of your games, they're placed into a special demo mode. This demo mode in most cases would be the full game with a 15-45 minute timer and in some cases an hour.  This allowed the person to play the game, get familiar with it then make a purchase if they wanted to.  When the time limit was up they would automatically be prompted to the Marketplace so that they may order it if liked the game.  We were toying around with a limit on the number of times members could access the shared game (as to discourage gamers from simply beating the game by doing multiple playthroughs). but we had not settled on an appropriate way of handling it.  One thing we knew is that we wanted the experience to be seamless for both the person sharing and the family member benefiting.  There weren't many models of this system already in the wild other than Sony's horrendous game sharing implementation, but it was clear their approach (if one could call it that) was not the way to go.  Developers complained about the lost sales and gamers complained about overbearing DRM that punished those who didn't share that implemented by publishers to quell gamers from taking advantage of a poorly thought out system.  We wanted our family sharing plan to be something that was talked about and genuinely enjoyed by the masses as a way of inciting gamers to try new games.  
The motto around the offices for the family plan was "It's the console gaming equivalent to spotify and pandora" it was a social network within itself!  The difference between the family sharing and the typical store demo is that your progress is saved as if it was the full game, and the data that was installed for that shared game doesn't need to be erased when they purchase the full game!  It gave incentive to share your games among your peers, it gave games exposure, it allowed old games to still generate revenue for publishers.  At the present time we're no longer going forward with it, but it is not completely off the table.  It is still possible to implement this with the digital downloaded versions of games, and in fact that's the plan still as far as I'm aware.



If the above is true, Microsoft's family share plan wasn't even going to be like PS3's current 2 console game share policy. It would had been more like the PS+ 1 hour Game Trial benefit for PS+ members. I'm more glad now Microsoft is backpeddling cause the family plan everybody thought was possible wasn't even what Microsoft had in mind.


This actually sounds like a plausible game sharing plan. Unlike the pipe dream where one person buys a game and 10 people can play it indefinitely for free.
