Let's breakdown the Xbox One licensing policies

Just minutes ago Microsoft announced how licensing will work with their next-gen console. After reading through their post on Xbox Wire, I wanted to examine every bit of that blog post and give my personal response to the policies. So, what does Microsoft have in store for us? Let’s dive into it!

The story is too old to be commented.

Sony could take a huge lead from the MS news if they play their cards right

I like the cloud storage idea, but I guess if you had a slow connection, that might be the only hindrance given how long a game could take to download.

This is some massive news right before E3 ;)

Confirmation of "24-hour check in with the servers or else you won't be able to play your games" is all I need to know, and MS confirmed this today.

QQ. I bet you have the internet at home, so what's it matter?

"Third party publishers may opt in or out of supporting game resale and may set up business terms or transfer fees with retailers"

Pretty Please based retailers, Please?

"Give your games to friends: Xbox One is designed so game publishers can enable you to give your disc-based games to your friends. There are no fees charged as part of these transfers.

There are two requirements: you can only give them to people who have been on your friends list for at least 30 days and each game can only be given once."


"Loaning or renting games won’t be available at launch, but we are exploring the possibilities with our partners."

That's good right? right?
