Update 2: Our man on the ground Tom Bramwell was able to speak to corporate vice president of Microsoft Phil Harrison about this hot-button issue and was able to confirm that a second user can install a game from a friend's disc for a fee, though it's unclear how much this will be. Harrison also confirmed that several users sharing a console can access the same game at no additional charge, and Microsoft has "a solution" for the resale market, though it's staying mum on those for now.

However, the Twitter outright denys it.

It's one Twitter account versus a lot of journalists now.

On 12/02/12 I said I wouldn't change this until something impossible happened. Now, Earthbound is coming to the US.

Until the source says "Microsoft" nothing is confirmed.

Someone is getting fired over this. That much is certain.

I'm tired of this DRM that only punishes paying customers.

I said this a long time ago and was called a conspiract theorist: The true purpose of DRM was never about pirates-- it was about gaining more and more control over consumers.

Hard to argue with this now. **** this DRM.

Starting to believe the journalists more.
They are also purposely trying to create controversy with misinformation like GTA did back in the day.
