    An expected response, but microsoft store has the best game sharing capability of any service, steams is half arsed in comparison with their kicking the other user off if you want to play a game yourself.

    I'm not really sure what that feature entails exactly.... it sounds like having more than one person playing the same video game at the same time from the same account?

    Different accounts,

    You create a family group with up to 5 people (iirc) and all of those people can play the game at the same time on their own personal computer,

    Where as Steam you do the same thing and the person playing the shared copy gets booted a few moments after the owner starts to play.

    For MSFT crossplatform games, this also means a PC purchase of Forza can be shared to an Xbox user.

    https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/ar...haring-windows-10-store-apps-with-your-family (this took some digging)

    Caveat: The shared user will not see these games in the list of owned titles, they have to navigate the store the purchase page where they will find the Buy Now button is an Install button instead.

    That is just for the launch whales, people who are willing to pay that kind of money at launch, so why should someone not take their money, wish i had a business with such customers. lol

    but just wait as this will no doubt be down to about £30 for the UE before the end of the year, band i personaly got the UE crossbuy from the MS store for the xbox/PC for £20 because MS give me money to play games with MS rewards points, silly fools. lol

    ^^^I must have access to a secret special MS store then becuase i bought this game last year for £24.99, and i bought the ultimate upgrade for £19.99, although that only cost me £9.99 as i claimed £10 of MS reward points towards, it, so i have the UE of this game for £35.....FM7 deluxe was the same, i got that for £25 in 2019 and the all the extra DLC for another £20, never paid full price for any of those games and they are always on sale either on MS store of Xbox.

    I must be getting old. I am completely unable to find anything on the Steam page that explains what the difference is between the three different versions of the game other than they cost more.

    Am I blind?

    The game (ultimate version) can be bought for €50 several times a year during a sale.
