It could soon be all too easy to cave into peer pressure if you're an Xbox One owner. Microsoft is
a Guide update that not only lets you obtain more info about the games your friends are playing, but buy them, install them or play them. It can even take you to the game's official club if you're interested more than just purchasing. You just have to select a friend's profile to glean more details.
We are starting to roll out a new feature for Xbox One: Directly from the Guide you will be able to quickly get more information on a game your friend is playing - with a link to play it (if installed), install (if you own it) or buy it + a link to the official club pic.twitter.com/VpVGqPzI6u— Larry Hryb (@majornelson) November 19, 2019
The company's Larry Hryb (aka Major Nelson) would
that the feature will reach your system "soon," so don't be shocked if it isn't there right away. Yes, this is clearly a bid to spur more game purchases -- it's banking on that fear of missing out when your friends are playing that hot new shooter. It could be genuinely practical if you've been invited to join a game, though, and it might also come in handy if you're unsure of what to play.
Look for it soon when you are in the Guide and you click on a friends profile.— Larry Hryb (@majornelson) November 19, 2019
