Looks like XBox One is already changing it’s tune regarding Always On and used games.
For those that understand this better than me…
So with the new XBox One if we buy a game (say Modern Warfare 8 or whatever) and both my sons want to play it, we buy it twice? Is that what the no households sharing means?
The way I understand it was going to work (up until yesterday) was basically that, once you put/install a copy of the game on to a particular Xbox console, you have to use that console to play that copy of the game and connect to the internet daily to validate the software license; you couldn’t use/install that copy of the game on another Xbox, even if you (or your “household”) own both of the Xboxi.
Ah, so a single xbox still would give multiple accounts access to play? They have made this confusing enough that it is giving me serious pause before I let the kids upgrade.
That’s the way I understand it.
Yeah, the new gen is definitely going to require some research before upgrading.
No household exemptions? I mean I get why they want a license per console… else you have a ‘household’ of frat brothers cloning their access permissions. But this is reeeee-diculous if two brothers each in the same household need separate and individual licenses to play.
