Xbox One: Sharing Digital Games and Gold

Today Marc Whitten has posted details on how Xbox One will expand how you share your games and outlines some of the benefits that Gold members will be getting at no additional cost.

Here are the highlights:

Sharing Digital Games
Everyone in your home can share digital games with each other. Your Xbox One can become your virtual game library filled with digital games that different people in the home bought. Anyone can pick any digital game on your Xbox One, sign in with their own gamertag and play – even if the owner is not signed in. Like physical media, you can also play many digitally downloaded games without being online, although experiences will be best when connected to the internet and Xbox Live. Finally, when you purchase a digital game, you can start playing even before the entire game downloads.

Because your digital games go with you, you can also use and share digital games when you sign in to another console. And, if you happen to buy a digital game when you are signed in on your friend’s console, your game will also be available on your Home Xbox One console for anyone to use.

Sharing digital games is a great feature of Xbox One, and we’re also making it possible for Xbox Live Gold members to share some of the best benefits of Gold.

Sharing Xbox Live Gold benefits
At E3 this year, we briefly highlighted a new benefit we’re bringing to Xbox Live Gold members on Xbox One. We’re calling it Home Gold. It will enable any Xbox Live Gold member on Xbox One to extend many Gold features to others at no additional cost. One Xbox Live Gold account delivering great benefits to everyone in the home.

Here’s how Xbox Live Gold members can extend Gold benefits including multiplayer gaming, Game DVR, SmartMatch and access to entertainment apps and experiences, including The NFL on Xbox, Skype, Internet Explorer:

  • At home. You can set up your console at home so that anyone who uses that console will enjoy multiplayer gaming and access to entertainment apps – even if you are not home or logged in.
  • On the go. You can log in at a friend’s house and everyone there can enjoy multiplayer gaming and access to entertainment apps while you are logged in.

At Home with Xbox One
If you’re an Xbox Live Gold member, an unlimited number of people can enjoy many benefits of Xbox Live Gold while they are using your Home Xbox One console. Friends and family will simply create their own account and gamertag and be able to enjoy Xbox Live online multiplayer gaming and access to entertainment apps.

Friends coming over to play? No problem. They can log in with their own gamertag and play online multiplayer. Even if you sign off, your friends and family can enjoy multiplayer gaming while they are playing on your Home Xbox One console.

At a Friend’s House with Xbox One
On Xbox One if you are an Xbox Live Gold member, you will be able to go to a friend’s house and play co-op multiplayer– even if your friend is not a Gold subscriber. Once you log in with your Xbox Live Gold account, everyone using that console can access multiplayer and entertainment apps for as long as you are logged in.

At Home with Xbox 360 and Xbox One
If you are an Xbox Live Gold member today, you are already set for Xbox One. Your Xbox Live Gold membership for Xbox 360 will seamlessly become an Xbox Live Gold account on your Xbox One and you will be able to enjoy Xbox Live Gold features on either console. You can even be logged in to Xbox 360 and Xbox One at the same time. Home Gold benefits are exclusively for Xbox One.

What Home Gold Means for the Xbox One Experience
With Xbox One everyone in your home has a personalized account, which will enable powerful and personal experiences, and that’s one of the reasons why we wanted to create Home Gold. It means that your account and your gamertag are truly yours. You don’t have to share your gamertag for multiplayer gaming with others in your home, or see recommendations for your kid’s cartoons next to the recommended first-person shooter for you. It also means that you can introduce new games and enjoy multiplayer with friends while they are at your house. Last but not least, it also means that when you buy one Xbox Live Gold membership, multiple people can enjoy the best benefits of Xbox Live Gold on your Xbox One at no additional charge.

    Not a Sony fanboy or anything (own them all, and will own both the new ones when they come out) but Sony stated in their E3 announcement that all you needed was one membership and it covered all three systems. That makes sense to me. All I see here is MS figuring ways to increase the amount they are charging us per year on Live. The family plan actually worked, but then they saw the $$ in their eyes and took it away. I’d understand discontinuing it, but they should have left those of us who were already on it alone and allowed us to continue. This is another one of those wonderful moves by MS that shows they are getting further and further out of touch with the gamers.

      Not to comment on the Xbox Home because I don’t understand it… But I will comment on PS+. The problem with theirs is that it cover 3 devices total. So if you have multiple devices you get in trouble quick. Like I have 2 PS3’s, 2 PSP’s, and 1 Vita (PS4 pre-ordered). How do I cover all those devices with PS+? You can’t. I’m stuck having to choose 3.

      I’m surprised that once again MS isn’t fully explaining how this is going to work. I have 2 360’s and will have a Xbox One. How is that going to work exactly. And when I buy a 2nd Xbox One down the road. How is that going to work?

      Confused. But Sony isn’t any better…

        With Sony, it’s actually simple. You have the service, it covers your PS3, PS4, and Vita. That’s it. If you have multiples of those, you have to have two accounts. Pretty straightforward.

      • Brent Phillips

        But that doesn’t work either. If you have two accounts then the one account can’t access the data (saves in the cloud) on the other account. You also have to maintain to different users with different trophies. That doesn’t sound like a solution.

        Or maybe I’m not understanding what you are saying.

        It knows what system is which, and just like you hook up your Vita through your PS3 to tell it to sync, you’ll do the same with the PS3 into your PS4 and Vita into your PS4 and it “knows” your systems. Those are the three covered.

        You seem knowledgeable. Look at my post above, and tell me what I can do in my situation please? What happens to the Plus games on my wife’s subaccount PS3 syustem when I get a PS4? Do I have to remove Plus from her console to put it on my new PS4 and therefore she loses access to all Plus games I ever downloaded? Can she get her own Plus account even though she is a subaccount? What a nightmare. Maybe Microsoft is doing it better after all, but their multiple console policy is a mystery still, unlike the 360 situation which is pretty cut and dry at this point (see my post about it below).

        Plus is now required for online play. So I will just get my wife a Plus account and therefore have 6 devices. But actually my wife is a subaccount, so Sony may not let me do that. That might be painful. Sony needs to gets its act together in allowing subaccounts to become full blown accounts.

        I actually had no idea Plus was limited to 3 devices. That’s going to be a huge problem for me once PS4 comes out because I’m already at 2 PS3s and a Vita. Bollocks.

        Can’t be happy when I am losing abilities on my machines. Under the new plan my family members will lose gold status (unless I pay up). Family members will lose the ability to access App content unless they use only that main machine to access it.

        My wife as an adult, cannot access adult content in the privacy of our room unless I pay up.

        I would really like them to address the difference between the real “Family Gold plan” and this new “Home plan” that applies to a single console.

        Ah ok, I understand better now what you meant. Yah, everyone on your family plan are getting a free XBLG account with some time on it, but yah, you have to re up on those.

        Yah they still need to explain how that works for people in our situations with several systems as what they announced was for more “normal households” that only have one system, so that’s understandable. I’m sure more info will come out for “us” shortly. In the mean time, just keep an eye out for cheap XBL cards online.

        Look around, stack up a few because you can kind of get 3 XBLG cards for the price of one XBL Family plan cost. yah, I’m kind of in the same issue but since I had a ton of credit at gamestop I just bot both of my kids discounted XBLG cards so they have a full 12 months each.

        I am not sure what your motivation is, Nick Peck. But please let me be. You seem to be trying to divert focus from an issue you seem to not really know anything about.

        You have a family but you have never looked into the Family
        plan. You want me to buy discount cards from Amazon. You have accused me of trying to get a free game. You are saying I want free accounts.

        I paid for the Family Plan, it was not free. The cost of the plan was higher than a single plan thus I was paying for the extra accounts, just at a discount because I bought a bundle.

        Replacing my Family plan (a plan that covered all the members in my family, both in my home and out of my home) with a plan that only covers a single console in my home. Only
        the primary account holder in the “Home plan” can enjoy gold status outside of the home. That is one person, so if you
        have two children they cannot go to a friend’s house and enjoy gold status unless that friend is gold. Thus shooting
        down this whole take gold to a friend’s house. This completely destroys the family construct for gaming.

        Seems like “normal households” are just those that don’t have Xboxes yet. Looking at the people posting here, there are quite a few homes with multiple Xboxes. Of the people I know with Xboxes, those with families have multiple Xboxes. I think they need to come up with a more complete way to handle family accounts. Both the Xbox and the members of the family should have Gold status. Before it was just the members of the family (so friends without Gold that came over could not play with Gold Live features). Now it is one Xbox and one account that is Gold. So the one account is free to go elsewhere and bring Gold with them while the one Xbox still has Gold on it.

    Thank everyone who bitched and moaned about the original DRM plan. I really hope MS smartens up and creates a new Family plan similar to iTunes Music Match. Allowing you to authorize X number of consoles and they have access to all your purchased games. The powers that be, who are obviously strictly businessmen who sit in meetings all day are obviously coming up with these silly complicated ideas.
    Here is what they should have done:
    Kept the DRM, but added an option to pop a disc in to authentic when no internet is present. All of these complications we are now facing would have been solved. We would be able to buy a game on one console and all our our FAMILY members would be able to use it on other consoles. It’s so funny how they push FAMILY and FAMILY gaming, but then just make it SO expensive and convoluted for families to game.

      Wow, good idea. I did not think of Apple Home Sharing for your computers and iTunes accounts. Even though we use it for music and a few Apps in my home. It does allow me to purchase items for my daughter (not even 10 yet) then move them to her iPad.

      I have to admit, the think tank at MS has not been exploring
      these business models they are pushing out as finalized products. They are really putting the hurt on a good product. I do believe this move has really put them in a position where they have to defend themselves against a Family oriented group of Xbox supporters that are not too happy with this move.

      They are so busy trying to re-invent the wheel. They may just destroy it.

      P.S. They did let me register two machines in my house to share a dashboard beta. They must have forgot they can do that.

    There was an update on Game Informer.

    “Xbox One makes it easy for everyone in your home to share digital games,” a representative told us. “Your home’s Xbox One console acts as a virtual game library filled with digital games that different people in the home bought. Anyone can sign in with their gamertag and play any digital game – even if the owner is not signed in and even if the console is not connected to the internet.”

    “Also, your digital games travel with you, so you can share games with friends when you sign into their console,” the statement continues. “If you purchase a digital game when you are signed into your friend’s console, your game will be available on your console at home for anyone to play. Once you sign out of your friend’s console, they will no longer have access to the game you purchased.”

    “This is similar to how digital games work on Xbox 360 today. The difference is when you purchase a game on your friend’s Xbox 360 console, the game is tied to that console you purchased it on, not your home console. When you go home, only you can play the game on your console, and no one else can play it on your console unless you sign in with your gamertag.”

    To be clear, when you purchase an Xbox 360 game remotely, anyone on the purchasing Xbox can use it (as was pointed out in the comments). However, use at home requires the purchasing Gamertag to be signed in. On the Xbox One, licenses are expressly tied to Gamertag only. This is a significant change, as our readers have pointed out that it is possible to get two copies from a single purchase on the Xbox 360.

        I know they will tie one console to your account, that is your home console. It’s how Xbox(dot)com allows you to download stuff to your console and with the Xbox One remotely apparently, but I don’t know if it will allow for more consoles than one. My guess would be no because of the clarification underneath. MS wants the 1 legitimate license per customer, but if they do allow concurrent sign-ins on multiple consoles (but e.g. limit those to a max of 5 and within 1 external IP address) that would negate this problem and I could LAN party with my friends. I hope MS can clarify some more.

      Not sure what your repost is trying to accomplish. This go to a friend’s house and buy content is really coming from left field. How often does this happen?

      Let’s look at a Family of four (4). The Family purchases a Gold account, most
      likely it will be in a parent’s name or account. The children cannot go to this friend’s house that is not gold and share anything. Let’s say they put it in one child’s name then the other child is out in the cold with his non-gold friends.

      They really need to have a Family plan.

    Major Nelson, I appreciate the information about the Gold Plans but this does not explain how people with multiple consoles in a single home. Right now I have 3 Xbox 360’s in my home. I plan on getting 4 xbox ones depending on how well the TV interface works. The community needs to know how people with more than one console will be affected by these changes and the loss of the family plan. Yes the ability to have a single plan for all users on the xbox is awesome but paying 100 bucks for 4 accounts was easy affordable and having a interface to control those accounts was very helpful. Yes I can wait for the sales for 30 dollar year subs but its still not the same price and its more hassle keeping up with 4 accounts and their subscriptions. I am not expecting a reply to this, I am just hoping you read this and pass the word on that this is something that the community needs to know before we go and drop 2,000 dollars on 4 consoles. If Microsoft truly wants to be the all in one entertainment hub they have to realize that a lot of families have entertainment rooms as well as living rooms and bedrooms all have TVs as well. We need clarifications about these policies. Thanks.

    Dear Major,
    Thankyou for the information on Xbox Home Gold for Xbox One. As good as this plan may seem for single Xbox One owners and their family and friends, the removal of the xbox gold family accounts will increase the cost of using Xbox live for my family by over 250%. That is from $129AU to $320AU. We are a family of 4 gamers, 2 adults and 2 kids, with 4 Xbox 360s in our house. We all enjoy gaming, and we all enjoying gaming online with each other and our friends. The family gold accounts offered us the opportunity to each have our own gold account and gamertag and enjoy the full benefits of gold on any console, either within our house or at friends place at a very affordable price. The money we save on account subs was then able to be used to purchase DLC, extra games and music and movies from the Xbox ecosystem. We have, at this stage, preordered 2 Xbox Ones and was looking forward to enjoying both consoles under the family plan. Each person being able to log into any console, be it 360 or One and enjoy the full benefits of Xbox Live Gold under the family plan. Xbox Home gold does not have this capability. Xbox Home Gold only applies to Xbox One and only to one console. For my family to continue using our Xbox 360s as we currently do we will incur a 250% increase to our account subs as we will now be required to purchase individual gold accounts. Now Microsoft and in particular the Xbox side of the company talks a lot about family and the family gaming experience and yet with the removal of the family Gold accounts microsoft is eeking to penalise those families who support Microsoft the most by buying multiple consoles and multiple copies of games/DLC to play on those consoles. I hope microsoft reconsiders their decision on removing the family plan and re-instates the option, or at the least extends the benefits of Xbox Home Gold to multiple consoles including the Xbox 360.

    so really from what I understand the new GOLD HOME is actually better than the family plan as long as your using the Xbox ONE. (will explain lower) However, if your using a 360 it actually makes things quite more expensive. The best thing to do for Microsoft is to give access to GOLD HOME on 360s as well as the Xbox ONE, or my alternative mentioned below.

    -HOW ITS ACTUALLY BETTER ON XBOX ONE
    you could pay for one gold account and get access for 7 additional accounts to gold for free.(and not be limited to the same 7 accounts all the time) registering one Xbox ONE (we will call “MAJOR” to simplify the rest of the conversation) as your HOME console. then logging onto another Xbox ONE.(call it “NELSON” see what I did there) Any 4 gamertags could log onto MAJOR and play online as a gold member for free, and at the same time if the actual Gold account logged onto NELSON an additional 3 gamertags could log onto NELSON and play as a gold member for free. That’s essentially 8 accounts for the price of one. Since the current family gold pass is roughly the price of two gold subscriptions, a person could purchase two actual Gold accounts and spread them the same way accross 4 consoles(the otherr two being called “LARRY” and “HRYB”) and get an additional 14 free gold member accesses accross all four consoles. (totaling 16 accounts for the price of two)

    -THE ACTUAL DOWNSIDE VS FAMILY GOLD PASS ON XBOX ONE
    with the family gold pass you had four Gold accounts that could each go anywhere onto any Xbox system.

    -ONE ALTERNATIVE NOT YET MENTIONED
    Microsoft could extend the Family Gold Pass to the Xbox ONE, but limit all four Gold accounts to having the same “HOME” console. Ultimately allowing 4 any gamertags to play on the home console, and any 3 gamertags to play on another Xbox ONE with one of the actual Gold accounts. (math being 4 free + 4(3 free + 1 actual) equaling 20 accounts online instead of the possible 16 as mentioned above) a small price to pay to both benefit the consumers and appease the current family gold subscribers while not affecting the 360’s current setup.

      I currently have one 360 at home and have the Family Gold Pass giving myself, my Wife and two of my 4 kids gold accounts. we do however take our individual gold accounts all over to friends houses (many without gold memberships) and to our local Youth Center enabling us to play and share our gold memberships with others through guest log-ins. I do however applaud Microsoft on basically extending the guest access to actually using there individual accounts/ gamerscores/achievements, just wish the value could extend with it.

      I think they are trying to get away from the idea of master and sub accounts with the removal of Gold (and also conveniently requiring more plain gold subs).

      I was proposing an idea as such:

      Gold accounts registered with Home registered to the same console gets grouped into a Family behind the scenes. When a gold account goes to a remote xbox one, they are able to access the libraries of any member in that library. Call it Home Gold Library Sharing (HGLS).

      The benefit for the loyal families with multiple XBOs would be:
      A1) no need to purchase multiple copies of the same game.
      A2) no need for complicated workarounds like setting your Home console on a secondary machine in order to share your library on that machine.
      A3) anybody can purchase content, so you don’t have to either have one account buy everything to facilitate sharing.
      A4) even accounts in the Family that didn’t do the purchasing can go to a friend’s house to temporarily share the game

      The downsides of such a plan:
      B1) more cost for families vs the old Family Gold, as each member needs gold. However, while the cost of gold might seem like a big thing, the benefit of A1 should outweigh that.
      B2) dependent on having a working internet connection to log in on remote XBOs to access content

      Upside for Microsoft to do this:
      C1) More gold subscriptions. One per account, vs one per XBO without HGLS. Given how much MS values gold subs, this is huge.
      C2) this can be done behind the scenes without upfront changes on the console itself. Could be as simple as a database search for other accounts with the same Home console to determine Families.
      C3) Good will. You screwed over your most loyal customers (multiple consoles count for something!) by discontinuing Gold.
      C4) Incentive for everyone to go digital and move away from discs.
      C5) It’s a stepping stone back to their original Family Share plan.

      Downsides for Microsoft:
      Well, there’s pretty much only one: Library sharing abuse. On the light side, a few friends all putting their home console as the same. On the extreme side, strangers getting together on forums to setup massive round robin sharing rings.

      There are restrictions that will limit the amount of abuse:
      D1) Trust. Abusers would need to have enough trust in the physical Home console’s owner to set that console as their Home.
      D2) online connectivity. To take advantage, the abuser would need to accept that their console is to be an always online console.
      D3) Library volatility. A member doesn’t pay their gold sub or decides to join a different ‘Family,’ then his games are inaccessible for the rest.
      D4) Limitations can be implemented by MS if it gets out of hand. It could be a limit on the number of Home accounts per console, or maybe the number of times a game can be concurrently shared.

    In my household we have multiple 360s One for living room, bedroom, 17 year old son’s room and one that my 9 and 7 year old share. Everyone watching or playing something at the same time. We purchased 2 of the 360s after we found out about the Gold family plan. Our physical video game library is well over a hundred games and growing. In fact, most of the families I personally know have multiple systems in their household. We planned on continuing with purchasing multiple xbox ones within the next year or so.
    The change to the Family plan, if it doesn’t involve multiple consoles, would definitely alter our plans for the One and, possibly, the whole dynamic with our current 360s. We would much rather spend money on the games( as well as hulu+, netflix, amazon prime, and movie rentals).
    Is there anything in the near future that will address multiple console homes?

    It would be good for those who don’t want to have to have the disk in all the time.

    What about the kids going to a friends or family’s house with xbox 360… They each will have to have a $60 live membership to enjoy play away from home? Only the primary user can enjoy “away from home” live with the home gold. Its b.s.

    Then how about the 3 xbox 360 consoles in a home. All the games that have online multiplayer but only single local so we have to play with our family on seperate consoles in the same home. so we have to buy 5 xbox live memberships per year at $60 each? So with new games for each and upgraded equipment, etc plus the $300 a year for gold…. Hell no! At this point the whole family wont be able to afford to play games they like and it will be a constant battle btn kids and parents on who will get to play since we cant afford to keep up multiple consoles.

    They need to figure out a connector or usb drive to allow xbox one to pick up the xbox 360 in the home and share xbox gold memberships through this without the need for all to purchase. Like the xbox one sees the 360 in the same home and it can allow it or something.

    Xbox acts like the one is so freaking great, advance, and well thought out but there is so many things wrong and we dont even have it yet.
