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!

So the stuff that the Xbox One is doing... how is it different exactly than Steam? Can you take a game you bought on Steam and install it on a friend's PC? Can you sell a used copy?

Yes, you sign onto YOUR account and download the game to THEIR computer to play while you are there. No extra money required. The catch is that once you log out YOUR account they cannot access the game.
