So they aren't as stubborn as they are stupid. That's good, I guess, though this will seriously fuck over my dream of everyone being on a single platform for multiplayer. Any word on if it will be released in more regions now? Cuz if it's still not coming to Japan right away, I doubt it'll get much Japanese support, and despite most of the games from there being shit they still make some of the best in the industry when they get it right.

that's what I want too. cross platform online would be too good for a company to actually do it.

Family Sharing, after they confirmed that anyone could be in your family, sounded like the greatest thing. Especially considering the fact that I have people that I personally know that have moved to other parts of the country, or even out of country.

I think that ensuring MS doesn't hold the ability to shut off access to all of your games should they ever take the 24 hour validation servers down (temporarily or permanently) is much more important than "sharing games" with other people. For one, it means that the games ("shared" or not) will actually WORK, guaranteed.

game sharing is a slippery slope though. leave it to the ingenious cheapskates of the world to figure out a work-around for whatever safeguards they come up with to prevent people from abusing it. I like the idea of being able to share games with 'family' but it seems like there could be a catastrophe on the horizon of that idea.

That's why it required the check-in. Only one person at a time could play it (and the owner had priority). Without the internet check-in, it literally wouldn't work.
