Xbox One's axed online features may be added back eventually: Microsoft
| by Shunal Doke |
Less than a month after its complete U-turn on the Xbox One’s DRM and used game policies, Microsoft is considering adding some of the console’s Internet-reliant features back into the console. In an interview with IGN, the company's Corporate Vice President Marc Whitten has said that some of the Xbox One's features, such as Family Sharing and being able to play games without the disc in the drive, might return to the Xbox One. According to Whitten, "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."
The cloud can be a good thing, but it can also be a bad thing
The company has curiously been very silent on what the console’s Family Sharing feature would entail. Many believe that it would essentially let gamers create shared libraries among friends and family where anyone could play any game as long as no one else was playing it at the time. However, a person claiming to be an Xbox engineer had elaborated on what it was: timed demos for anyone a gamer might deem to be family. This has not been confirmed so far, however, and it is best to take the words of the “Xbox Engineer” with a pinch of salt.
