The Xbox One news just keeps pouring in nearly 24 hours after Microsoft made its big announcement. So far, we’ve heard contradicting reports on whether or not Xbox One owners will be charged for playing used games as well as a possible release date. Now, we’re hearing some information regarding Xbox Live that we’re sure Xbox One owners are going to want to be aware of.
After the Xbox One global presentation, Microsoft executives spoke with a number of members of the media to answer a number of questions they had. One of the topics discussed was Xbox Live memberships and if they would be any different on the Xbox One. It seems Xbox Live memberships can not only be used across both the Xbox 360 and Xbox One, but memberships can be used across multiple profiles. This means multiple profiles on a single Xbox One console can use a single Xbox Live Gold membership to be able to access Xbox Live Gold exclusive demos, cross-game chat and, of course, play online multiplayer.
We’re not sure how exactly Microsoft plans to implement this, but it certainly is a step in the right direction for those of us who have family members who play on their Xbox 360 infrequently, resulting in them being Xbox Live Silver members for years.
