  1. Xbox Game Renting... A future possibility?


    We already have "Free Play Days" which allows you to play a game for a few days and then takes away the ability to play that game after a set time. The store already has a function to do this with Movies & Tv Shows. So why not take it one step further and allow us the ability to rent any game on the store? Would only require an extra button next to "Buy" in the store and the same functionality of removing the ability to play the game after a set rental period. Just like how "Free Play Days" work. I know the counter to my argument will be "but muh game pass". But there is no reason the two can't exist together. Game Pass is a Flat Rate service. Game Rental would be pay as you go.

    Just like the old days of going to the video store and renting a game (or Sega Megadrive ). It also allows people to try before they buy. I bought many a game back in the day this way. It also helps with buyers remorse and hostility towards game developers.

    It would give people another good reason to play Xbox instead of PlayStation and work towards Microsoft being the Netflix of gaming.

    But hey, if Microsoft hates money. That's cool. Just ignore me .

    Weapons in '**** Kit Shortcut"

    Should of use the money to rent your own server. Or for future dlc.

    I hope it's nothing like Left 4 Dead or AVP. If it is, then I forsee a rent in its future.

    My Movies and Videos won't play on my phone

    Just a note to Shockwave2211, if you rented the video on your Surface, you can only watch it on the Surface. You cannot rent on one device and continue on a different one. Perhaps they will enhance this in the future, but currently that is the way it works.

    Problems with Ultimate bundle download

    Yeah I understand you might of just got the game and late to the party. But still there's plenty of other new low ranks. Why spend money? Game is easy the way it is. Should of kept the money for future dlc or rent a server. IMO
