Re: Xbox 720 may 'block' used games
Really bad idea if it does happen. I'm sure there will be people that'll still buy the console, but a few will probably think twice about buying one if that's the case. I mainly buy games new, or on the day of release, but if I see a game that I was interested in but never bought and it's going cheap on Ebay or Amazon(Used) I'll buy it.
Which is another point, the move is mainly to attack companies from selling Used games at around the same price as new ones. It actually stops the consumer from selling their own stuff, at a higher loss so once you're done with it you can't do anything with it.
Also guessing you'll be unable to borrow them from friends?
