Spencer: Digital Sharing and Gifting may come to Xbox One

Phil Spencer has said that Digital Sharing and gifting may one day return to Xbox One.

“We are now fully heads down on thinking about and building out the future of our digital marketplace to enable what people would expect, and hopefully some things that will delight them beyond their expectations,” Spencer told Gamespot.

“I know when I say this I always get beat up, but I think some of what we were trying to say last summer was right.

“We understand what games you own and who you are and how you move around and who you might want to loan rights to your games or gift your games to,” Spencer said.

“We totally believe in that future. And any other marketplace you play in, these kind of mechanisms are out there.”

Gifting is certainly a feature we'd love to see. What about you?

I'd love to see it, I'd love to see Microsoft bring back their original DRM plans. Trouble is, people always ask for change, Microsoft tried to do something different, then loads moaned about it, now a lot of the same people want it to return.

Some of them were really good ideas, where they went wrong was announcing it before they even knew all the details and being god awful at explaining them.

Gifting is a great little feature and one I've already used a few times on the iPhone(App store) to gift games to friends(birthdays/xmas). I don't get why it hasn't been an option on all consoles from the moment digital games have been available? It's a no-brainer and makes total business sense....

Please describe the nature of the abuse:
