Xbox Is Actively Looking Into Digital Game Sharing Options

According to Ybarra, the team is looking into it with regards to how it fits in with the Universal Windows Platform that touches both Xbox One and PC. “Steam has a great family plan right now,” he says. “We’re looking at both from a Windows standpoint – well, what’s our policy of the Windows Store? How many people can play concurrent? How do you share? We’re going to merge those two topologies soon so that a whole new model for how you share games across that will be in place. We’re actively working on that now to try to figure [it out], but we want to get to a much simpler model and potentially one that lets you do more… have a little bit more freedom in what you can and can’t do.”

It would be great if I could share games with my kids, and not have to make their xbox my “home” xbox. That’s really my only complaint regarding how it works currently.
