With the release of the Xbox One being mere months away, Microsoft is increasingly releasing more news about their next gen console. Last Friday was no different, as Marc Whitten, Chief Product Officer, posted news on the Xbox Wire site about sharing digital games and Xbox Gold.
In Whitten’s article, he explained that essentially any digital game that is download is now tied to the gamertag and/or the Xbox One it was purchased on. What this means is that if a household has at least one Xbox Gold account, all other gamertags can play that same digital game. The Xbox Gold account does not need to be signed in.
Also, if a gamer goes to his/her friend’s house, they can sign into that friend’s Xbox One with the purchasing Xbox Gold credentials and the game will become available for them to play. No more traveling around with a USB stick that contains pre-loaded games.
