Steam to allow game sharing between users
Valve have announced a Steam Family Sharing feature for their popular PC digital distribution platform. Allowing you to share your games library with up to ten friends and relatives, you’ll be able to access games across different accounts and have distinct saves and achievements via the Steam cloud. Access to some games may be restricted by “technical limitations” (like the need for a CD key) but this is certainly an exciting feature - and not entirely unlike that floated by Microsoft for the Xbox One, before it was shot down in flames.
You can sign up for the beta by joining the Family Sharing Group on the Steam community. It’s due to kick off mid-Sept.
