Games At an event earlier today, Microsoft unveiled the next Xbox - the third model, but confusingly named Xbox One. The big focus was TV, integrated Kinect, and all the other stuff we all expected to be forced down our throats. I think it took them 25 minutes to actually come to what should be the core of the story: gaming. Nothing groundbreaking in the gaming department, except for how Microsoft intends to handle the used games market and borrowing games from friends: pay up, buddy!

What's the fee?

What sorta fee are we talking about? A buck? Ten bucks? Full price of game? TFA is a little light on details...

How does this compare to Android, iOS, Windows Phone, and Windows 8/RT which don't allow *any* sort of sharing (and don't have physical install media)?

How does this compare with existing digital downloads on Xbox 360? Is it possible to share those today, or is this actually a lifting of restrictions on them?
