    With our modern architecture, Xbox One games will load more quickly, will be always accessible from the cloud, and there is no physical limit to the size or scope of the content provided.

    Here are our platform policies and capabilities for game licensing – all of which will be made available when Xbox One launches later this year:

    • Buy the way you want—disc or digital—on the same day: You’ll be able to buy disc-based games at traditional retailers or online through Xbox Live, on day of release. Discs will continue to be a great way to install your games quickly.
    • Access your entire games library from any Xbox One—no discs required: After signing in and installing, you can play any of your games from any Xbox One because a digital copy of your game is stored on your console and in the cloud. So, for example, while you are logged in at your friend’s house, you can play your games.
    • Share access to your games with everyone inside your home: Your friends and family, your guests and acquaintances get unlimited access to all of your games. Anyone can play your games on your console--regardless of whether you are logged in or their relationship to you.
    • Give your family access to your entire games library anytime, anywhere: Xbox One will enable new forms of access for families. Up to ten members of your family can log in and play from your shared games library on any Xbox One. Just like today, a family member can play your copy of Forza Motorsport at a friend’s house. Only now, they will see not just Forza, but all of your shared games. You can always play your games, and any one of your family members can be playing from your shared library at a given time.
    • Trade-in and resell your disc-based games: Today, some gamers choose to sell their old disc-based games back for cash and credit. We designed Xbox One so game publishers can enable you to trade in your games at participating retailers. Microsoft does not charge a platform fee to retailers, publishers, or consumers for enabling transfer of these games.
    • 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.
    In our role as a game publisher, Microsoft Studios will enable you to give your games to friends or trade in your Xbox One games at participating retailers. Third party publishers may opt in or out of supporting game resale and may set up business terms or transfer fees with retailers. Microsoft does not receive any compensation as part of this. In addition, third party publishers can enable you to give games to friends. Loaning or renting games won’t be available at launch, but we are exploring the possibilities with our partners.

    As we move into this new generation of games and entertainment, from time to time, Microsoft may change its policies, terms, products and services to reflect modifications and improvements to our services, feedback from customers and our business partners or changes in our business priorities and business models or for other reasons. We may also cease to offer certain services or products for similar reasons.

    In the months ahead, we will continue to listen to your feedback as we meet with our partners in the ecosystem to bring additional detail about our policies.

    We are excited about this new generation of games and entertainment and look forward to sharing more news with our fans.

    Yes but then they CANNOT play it themselves and you can't give it to anyone else. I don't really see people just giving up their games. Maybe if say we were to trade like you give me forza and i give you halo when were both finished with the game then yes M$ lose money since we only bought 2 games between us but we get 2 each.

    Just have to wait till we are done with the game of course

    EDIT: I can't see myself getting the xbox one now but if i did i would have a very big friends lists to set up trades just like i mentioned. However trust could be an issue since there's no guarantee they will send the game once you send yours

    old news, but thanks for the update.

    The fact of the matter is... if I want to borrow a game from a buddy after he installs it to try it before I buy it, I cant do that I now have to pay the full retail to play the game on my console.

    With this "Theory of improved gaming for a modern era" or whatever they call it, microsoft has done the one that that no one thought possible... killed their stocks, and made a lot of xbox fanboys go to sony

    Unless i'm reading this wrong this info tells me that i will NO longer be able to obtain games through places like Lovefilm/Blockbuster. If that's the case then hello PS4 unless Sony do the same

    I can't afford £40-£50 for ever game that comes out and i wouldn't want to either. some games take 2-3 days to complete and never get any dlc so i would be spending thousands every year if it wasn't for rentals

    I have to agree with the others that may potentially switch. Xbox one is not making feel the urge go and buy it the first day, but the PS4 is making me want to switch. Does anyone if you can use your PS3 account on the PS4? I thinking about making the switch to PS3 now and start building my trophies if that is the case. Besides I can God of War all day, because that game is just way to awesome.

    i dont think sony will do this because they probably reading all the comments and stuff on the xbox one and gonna do opposite, e.g ms are trying to make more money out off us by doing these thing but if sony dont then people are gonna go with sony and that means more money for them ;)

    that gives me more of a reason to switch now. The only difference is I will miss getting my free games.
