Everything you just questioned..again...was already addressed in previous reply. This is not a myth or legend. Its a fact. You just refuse to believe because you hate M$.
No, it wasn't addressed at all. You talked around my questions and just concluded that Microsoft's way would have resulted in everything being gumdrops and candy canes for everyone without addressing how the hell publishers were actually going to be okay with having a 9:1 ratio of deadbeats to paying customers on the Xbone.
I guess The Verge also hates MS:
It's impossible to verify that these are the words of an Xbox engineer, but sources familiar with Microsoft's Xbox plans have revealed to The Verge that the company was discussing the idea of limiting each Family Sharing session to one hour and that game progress would be saved so you could play through the hourly caps or purchase the full game to continue uninterrupted.
However the final details would have shaken out, it is clear that this was NOT unfettered game sharing. Of course it is in Microsoft's interest to have you believe that it was now that they don't have to ever deliver on it. "It was gonna be sooooo awesome, dudes! You just don't even know! But you don't want our vision of the future, so whatever... it's your loss!"
If this feature was as incredible as they insist it was, and they had even gotten all the major publishers had signed off on it as you say they did (citation needed, btw), there is zero chance MS would have backed down. They might have gotten off to a slow start after all the negativity (and probably will, anyway, if the yield problem rumors are true) but they would have easily sold through their first shipments and eventually cleaned Sony's fucking clock with all these FREE GAMES FOR EVERYONE.
Its funny how you constantly refer to "them", Microsoft as the enemy when this would benefit "US" the gamers. That what I care about. Why you wouldnt want this, when ALL EVIDENCE says it was legit, is beyond me. Oh yea, you are a fanboy. Microsoft messaging on this has never changed. They were saying the same thing last week as they are today.
