    Ok. Don't show up in anymore Xbox One sales threads then. It is because of people like this guy and me and thousands of other frustrated gamers that X1 is on top right now on amazon.

    That's what I was thinking. lol He has very good talking points and common sense in his comments. His delivery tends to be the problem. Pretty much, you can still have all those other features they talked about with digital download DRM, if people wanted it, and hard copy people could have their versions. The reason MS pulled the plug on "family sharing" was because they wanted to, not because they had to. People need to be more upset with the company trying to shovel diarrhea into their mouths.

    To be fair to Microsoft, they probably actually cannot implement the "Family Plan" without re-enabling the 24 hour check-in. If the game is "checked out" on the cloud there needs to be a way of tracking when it is checked back in, after all. That means knowing if the machine is still playing the game or even if the console is switched off.. I could see a situation arising where an Xbox loses power and permanently "checks out" a game unless there is some way of monitoring the activity of the console.

    Apparently family sharing was more like a 1hr full game trial. So gamers lost nothing.

    You say that because youre one of the people who he was talking about who are blaming the gamers and even saying that youre disappointed in the gaming community, etc. (in the Xbone section). He struck a nerve and so now youre insulting him. lol Be disappointed in MS. Theyre the ones who let you down.
