'Xbox 720' Might Reject Used Games

Miffed at the possibility that new game consoles could lock out used games? Get used to it.

ďIíve heard from one reliable industry source that Microsoft intends to incorporate some sort of anti-used game system as part of their so-called Xbox 720,Ē Kotakuís Steven Totilo wrote on Wednesday morning. I have no reason to doubt that he heard that. It doesnít necessarily mean itís happening ó at this point, Microsoft is probably considering all sorts of features for its next Xbox console and floating them by game developers to see what the reaction is. But Iím sure itís something thatís being very strongly considered. Also, the death of used games is inevitable.

Yup, means if you buy a game and you don't like it... you're stuck with it. Probably is going to kill the whole market of people who rent games.

I seriously doubt that this is true. First how do they determine what is a used game? Second, I've never heard of any of the major publishers complaining about selling and buying used games. Third, it is legal to sell and buy used games as long as the CD key is open to use by the buyer.

This will never fly in the consumer market. So yeah...smells like FUD to me.

Has anyone done this yet? You can download entire games to your hard drive without having to use the disc. The only problem that I am having is that apparently, even if you already have the game saved to your HD, MS doesn't take that as meaning that you own it. I have Bioshock saved, but I have...
