The term ‘videogames as a service’ has been thrown about with wild abandon in recent years, and following the official unveiling of Microsoft Studios’ plans for such advancement – and subsequent backtracking – it’s apparent that the gaming public isn’t yet ready for the switch from format to form. Instead we are set to experience a revision of existing online features for both next-generation consoles, as are highlighted in this new video.
It’s worth noting that since the creation of this video Microsoft Studios has confirmed that the digital sharing initiative that was once set to lead a series of new features on Xbox One has been confirmed as standard for all Xbox LIVE Gold subscribers from day one. However there has not yet been any discussion regarding the possibility of using digital versions of retail purchases as was the initial plan. The video below highlights some of the online features of each the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, with more details likely to be revealed at this month’s Gamescom. Of course, Electronic Theatre will keep you updated with all the latest features.
