Xbox One: The Internet shows us how we are all Xbone’d

Microsoft came out yesterday and explained how games “licensing” works on its new Xbox One console. It was another confusing mess that left us with a ton of burning questions. You can lend games to your family but not to strangers? If evolution is real, aren’t we all technically family? I can trade games in but only at GameStop “participating retailers”?

If only someone would come out and explain exactly what I need to do to play games on Xbox One. Well, someone did just that.

Twitter-user Cheesemeister3K created a flowchart that explains how to set up games on Xbox One in any situation. Unfortunately, it looks like all paths lead to Xbox One owners getting Xbone’d.

Check out the full flowchart, which is obviously a joke, by clicking on it below:
