Wooohooo yes

No Kris, I will not add you as a friend on Steam

Everyone will want to share with Rash, since he owns the Steam library.

Tbh, this won't change a lot for me. I like the idea (and yes, I liked the idea when Microsoft did a variation on it for the Xbone) but I would still much prefer to own my own games. It would be good if there's a game that you've been wanting to try but not sure whether you'll like it or not but I can't see myself sharing somebodies library for more than a few games, for a few hours.

This really, was thinking of sharing with a buddy of mine. But until the steambox really becomes a thing in the living room I don't see this having wide use other than friends using other friends accounts to find out if a game is shite or not.

I Liked it untill I saw this

Basically, If Jess Uses this to play Assassins Creed II, and I want to Play BioShock, I won't be able to without it Kicking her off. So basically This is giving someone access to your entire library for one game and you can't do anything untill they stop playing that one game.

You're complaining about gaining another method of annoying Jess?!

I think the person borrowing gets a warning that you've logged in and has a couple of minutes to wrap up, save etc.

Sounds good to me on the whole. I'm always getting recommended games by mates and it would be nice to have the chance to try them through their accounts first, rather than take the plunge blind.

The thing that Smile has mentioned will also avoid people buying one copy of the game and just playing that with all their friends.

I can see that they wouldn't want to have multiple people playing the same game from a library but it's a bit lame that my daughter can't play Dead Rising on my account while I play Euro Truck Simulator. It definitely reduces it's usefulness.
