NeoGAF has discovered a few lines of code in Steam’s Beta latest update, which seem to promote game borrowing.
In accordance with the code, it appears that Valve intends to allow players to share their games with at least one friend.
Below is the code:
- “SteamUI_JoinDialog_SharedLicense_Title” “Shared game library”
- “SteamUI_JoinDialog_SharedLicenseLocked_OwnerText” “Just so you know, your games are currently in use by %borrower%. Playing now will send %borrower% a notice that it’s time to quit.”
- “SteamUI_JoinDialog_SharedLicenseLocked_BorrowerText” “This shared game is currently unavailable. Please try again later or buy this game for your own library.”
We’ll keep you updated as more information comes through.
