One of the coolest ideas from the debut of the Xbox One just over a year ago is still in the future of the rapidly evolving console, according to Xbox head Phil Spencer. “We looked at the digital features that we had talked about last year and as a gamer, there were a lot of those features that I think really resonated and were smart features for people who really have a lot of games and maybe play on a couple consoles or have a bunch of people in the house,” said Spencer in an interview with Gamertag Radio. “As I look at our monthly update roadmap, those kind of features are in our roadmap. There is a little bit of a challenge now that you’ve got DRM on a disc,” he added.

Microsoft may still introduce Family Sharing, the ability to share a game library among up to 10 family members, to Xbox One consoles in future updates, head of Xbox Phil Spencer told Gamer Tag Radio in a recent interview. “We looked at the digital features that we had talked about last year and as a gamer, there were a lot of those features that I think really resonated and were smart features for people who really have a lot of games and maybe play on a couple consoles or have bunch of people in the house or want to share with friends,” Spencer said. “As I look at our monthly update roadmap, those kind of features are in our roadmap. There is a little bit of a challenge now that you’ve got DRM on a disc.” When Microsoft announced in June last year that it was removing the controversial restrictions from its new Xbox console — internet connection requirements and region-locked software — the company’s policy reversals resulted in some features such as Family Sharing being removed.
