Microsoft: Xbox One family game share was never time limited

Earlier this week, after Microsoft killed their family Xbox One game share plan due to DRM changes, an alleged Microsoft employee used Pastebin to claim that the games shared through the plan would be limited to 60 minutes of game time. Since that piece of information was 'revealed', Aaron Greenberg of the Xbox team has come out and basically said that the claim on Pastebin was false.

It's not entirely surprisingly to learn that a completely unsourced statement from a "Microsoft employee" turns out to be false, but in the long run it doesn't really matter anyway: the game sharing feature has been killed, and likely won't return any time soon.
