The XBox One will allow users to lend games freely among themselves, the same goes for the XBox 360.
"There will be no limitations to using and sharing games" - Don Mattrick, president of Microsoft's Interactive Entertainment Business
This "sharing" applies to disc-based games, even though, there is no convenient way to share downloadable titles.
One potential drawback is that the Xbox One disc-based games will require the disc in order to function, as does the Xbox 360. Users used to be able to install entire games from discs. Microsoft has not told us why this functionality was removed, but it may be to provide downloadable versions of titles with a feature to set them apart from physical copies.
