    Could this make Xbox One look even more of a bad choice of gaming console if Steam let gamers share games with each other? Is everyone out to kill XB1 Lol.

    People in the market for a gaming console probably aren't going to get a PC instead for gaming. Don't think it would have any effect

    Agreed. PC gamers and console gamers are two very different groups of people.

    Didn't realise pc gamers were so different lol, but on the bright side if steam is able to allow gamers to swap games then so could Microsoft if the DRM side of things backfired?

    MS could take a leaf out of Sony's book on how to share games with friends.

    Gabe wasn't happy with MS ever since MS said they would sell games through the Windows Store. I'm sure he wants the PC gaming market to all go through Steam so Valve can profit. Wouldn't be surprised if Valve was trying to kick MS while it was down (in terms of Xbox One reaction).

    There still would be restrictions on how you can share and for how long so it's not completely open but most people won't read that part. It also depends on which developers would allow this especially if it meant less money for them.

    Steam is loved and I thought they would love the xbox one because it's so much alike, but the internet went crazy for so little (including non-gamers in the mix)

    I've tried to explain how it works on xbox... but people generally answer "i prefer lending my CD directly to my friend then going through this process" which bugs me because going all the way to your friends house is more trouble then entering his gametag in you "circle of ten". I just gave up.... ill wait until release date to say "I told you guys..."

    Edit: yeah it's the correct decision... you can always do a digital download if you want to run games without discs.

    Wow... just noticed... "Region locks have been dropped" <- that should be good for some people!

    Yeah, I had the problem of I have family in Canada, I'm UK. Going round to theirs with the disc or shipping it to them to borrow is kinda out of the question.
