Microsoft Xbox One Family Sharing Features May Return


After Microsoft announced the launch of their next-generation Microsoft Xbox One gaming console they also announced a number of changes to the services they offer including the shutting of their Family Sharing service.

Now in an interview with Marc Whitten the Microsoft Xbox One chief product officer, the IGN website has revealed that Microsoft may consider making a U-turn on their decision to close down the Family Sharing services they offer on the Microsoft Xbox One.

Microsoft’s Marc Whitten explained in the interview that Microsoft had made a few errors in the roll out of their new next generation Microsoft Xbox One console.

“If it’s something that people are really excited about and want, we’re going to make sure that we find the right way to bring it back.” -“One of the things I think we learned was that we didn’t talk enough, and we were incomplete in a lot of how using the system would work. Because we weren’t participating in the conversation in a deep enough way, it got us sort of off cycle about how we talk about our program.

I think we’ve learned a lot of lessons. And I think it’s something that you’re going to see a lot more from us, frankly, is engaging more with the community. I think it’s the number one thing I’d want to do if I went back, was have the conversation more open and more complete.”

“As we previously announced, consumers will be able to sign on to any Microsoft Xbox One console and have access to all their digital games.  Once the required data –a fraction of the entire game – is on their hard drive, they can jump into the action while the rest of the game finishes downloading in the background.  And of course, on Xbox 360, consumers today can download their digital games on any console after signing in to their Xbox Live account.”
