Get a gaming rig with steam, it's pretty much the original XB1 but competently executed.
When I first heard about it, I thought it was a bad idea, mainly because I never owned a gaming rig or used steam. THEN, I thought it would eventually be awesome. Not right away, but after maybe 6 months, it would be close to or as awesome as Steam is. I guess we'll never know now.
Can Titanfall hurry up and get in my life already?!!!
I think both companies should have adopted the idea. It gives money back to developers and the console creators.

You mean... like how the PS2 was a super PS? Or how the PS3 was a super PS2? Or how the XBox360 was a super XBox?
Or how the Super NES was a... Super NES?
It just holds the industry back, as you say.

Yes, it's ironic how you can't differentiate between a mandatory check-in... and a voluntary posting at a gaming forum. Mandatory - Voluntary... whooosh, over your head.

Well, let's look at the differences.
Except you are leaving out a few horrible things that changed in order to make it appear that your argument has merit, which it does not.
MS could still do their great amazing not at all damage control that came about due to the vocal minority backlash family sharing plan on digital games if they wanted to. What is stopping them? The DRM is already there, only thing missing from it is family sharing. They could even include the awesome 24 hour check in option for those interested in using it.

Look at all those modded comments. Them lazy ******* actually moderating today?! My eyes don't believe it.
Family share enabled you to play games for 30 minutes, at which point it asked you to purchase the game yourself, or log on to the account that originally bought the game. It was a glorified demo mode. This has been confirmed by multiple devs since the console launched. Family share did not enable you to just pass games around to everybody on your 'family' list for free. It really wasn't the feature all you lot seem to think it was.
Quoted for truth. Microsoft won't give you a hand without asking you for your whole arm in return.
