    Right. i'm curious why the writer referred to PS4's "beefier GPU clocks", and wondering did he mean compared to XB1?

    It's because the PS4 has 50% more clocks

    (12 Units) * (Clock/Unit) < (18 Units) * (Clock/Unit)

    12 Clocks vs 18 Clocks.

    50 Percent More Clocks.

    and are we sure cboat's claim is not that the 60 minutes was just for the online check? and not a cut off?

    This was the question:

    @aarongreenberg Is it true that the
    "family sharing" was only demos for like an hour? You weren't actually sharing the full game?

    here is the answer:

    @STX21 No, that was confusing and not true.

    So Aaron is telling the truth. It is NOT a demo you are sharing the full game.

    Yeah, it was weird phrasing, but I think he just meant that clock for clock, the PS4 GPU is beefier by virtue of having more execution units.

    so is he denying it's only a demo or denying it's only for 60 minutes, or both? once again, too much wiggle room.

    I think he is denying that it's a demo which is true. It's not a demo. Demos can't share DLC demos don't save your progress. The family share plan does. An hourly nag screen ... think of it as shareware :razz:

    Of course. They aren't gonna lie, they just don't need to tell you everything.

    Aegies (polygon) deny the rumor too:

    @aegies: "the xbox one game sharing thing was real. it was not demos. they had arrangements with publishers in place."

    "they had arrangements with publishers in place"
    This is the reason, they scrapped all the system, both physical and Digital.
    Hope they bring digital down the road.

    If pastebin were factual, where is our 4TF Xbox infinity??

    The way I understood the family sharing was that you could give a game only once to one of you 10 friends not to all of them, it then became his and he could not give it to anyone.

    I think you're mixing the gifting with the sharing. Although with the sharing, if it was as open as said, then there's little point for the gifting mechanism. I guess that's only for resale.

    Well, they could just be optimistic and believe in human beings potentially having more than 10 friends. ;)

    Although I guess that doesn't fit with the nerd in the parent's basement image. :D

    Right they weren't demos and they had arrangements with publishers. What are the arrangements ? Restrictions on usage so as to not devalue the game. There is nothing in the rumor that contradicts any public statement made by MS.

    So here is what the Verge has to say :

    http://www.theverge.com/2013/6/21/4451172/xbox-engineer-disappointed-pastebin-note-rumored-features

    Not a demo but a version of shareware.
