Nelson: Xbox One may allow gamers to gift their games in the future
Xbox One users may have the chance to gift games to friends after the launch of the new system, Larry "Major Nelson" Hyrb said in a Q&A session on Reddit.
Hyrb responded to a Reddit commenter asking whether a feature that allows you to share digital titles will be available at launch. "Great feature wed like to add in someday, but wont be there at launch," he wrote.
Microsoft previously removed a promising "Family Sharing" option that would allow sharing a game library with family members, even when theyre roaming off of the home console.
"As we move forward, I think we will continue to refine the best way to make it work but Ill say that it comes down to a pretty basic set of ideas," Xbox chief product officer Marc Whitten told Polygon earlier in the year. "I just want, as much as possible, to replicate the experience that a typical family has with physical content with digital content."
Xbox One releases Nov. 22 in most regions.
