Forums - Microsoft Discussion - Xbox 1 family plan was just a demo mode

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...When the time limit was up they would automatically be prompted to the Marketplace so that they may order it if liked the game.

They saved themselves from an even greater gaming uproar. I can't even imagine all the flack Microsoft would have gotten from that...

I'm sure it would have worked out well. People don't pay attention to a lot of the details.

Did he? I assumed he was still being coy.

So... I'm guessing that when Gamestop found out that the discs they're selling were going to be used to advertise to your friends to buy digital copies from Live, they lowered the boom on Microsoft's ass?
