PostSubject: Report: No Used Games on Next Xbox   26.01.12 19:00

A bold move...but is Microsoft willing to compromise its consumer base?

Rumor has it the next-generation Xbox may limit exactly what kind of games you're allowed to play. According to sources speaking to kotaku,
the Xbox 360's successor will have some kind of anti-used-game
enforcement. There's no explanation of what that means, but speculation
surrounding the issue says the console could outright reject used-games

LA Noire used an online pass this generation. Would you buy an Xbox 3 if you couldn't play its sequel used?

Online Passes are a recent staple in staving off used sales. Limiting what used
buyers can access is a protective measure for publishers, much to the
chagrin of parts of the gaming community. Chris Kohler of Wired
argues that the death of used games is inevitable, and passes are the
first step toward something exactly like a native anti-used game something
integrated into consoles. He notes, of course, that digital is the
future of buying games, but in the meantime we may be looking at "an
interim period in which the disc as a delivery method is still around
but...becomes more like a PC game, which are sold with one-time-use keys
that grant one owner a license to play the game on his machine."

For all we know, if this is legitimate, such a theoretical link between a
Gamertag and new game would simply negate the need for online pass
redemption codes in every game. This alleged feature comes alongside
talks that the Xbox 3 will also turn to blu-ray for its primary format.

Until Microsoft officially unveils details about its much-rumored new
device, we're relying on speculation with strong rhetoric to figure out
the future of gaming. Would a console permanently banning of used-games
be a deal-breaker for you?
