Interesting. Sounds pretty much what MS had planned for the XBO before all their users had a collective cow.
Close. I don't think MS was going to be "only one person can touch the library at once" - I thought it was going to be on a per-game basis - but we didn't get far enough to get those kinds of details before Microsoft reversed course.

Also, totally understand why you can't both be playing the same game at the same time, otherwise it could be exploited so co-op and multiplayer games like Borderlands 2, L4D2, Saints Row, CoD etc. need only be purchased by one person then shared out.
It's not that you can't play the same game simultaneously - you can't use the same library simultaneously. If you're playing Borderlands 2, your friend can't be playing your copy of Skyrim.
