Xbox One petition calls for restoration of family sharing, other digital rights
Xbox One’s family sharing options were nuked after Microsoft’s policy u-turn on DRM and 24-hour authentication. Now, a gamer has set up a petition to see the console’s sharing options restored.
The petition’s statement reads, “This was to be the future of entertainment; A new wave of gaming where you could buy games digitally, then trade, share or sell those digital licenses.
“Essentially, it was Steam for Xbox. But consumers were uninformed, and railed against it, and it was taken away because Sony took advantage of consumer uncertainty. We want this back. It can’t be all or nothing, there must be a compromise.”
What do you make of the above? Is this a case of rattle-hurling, or should Microsoft re-instate sharing functions? Let us know what you think below?
