Xbox 720 may 'block' used games

Microsoft might move to block used games with its next Xbox, forcing gamers to shell out for new copies rather than picking up a cheap deal from the Gamestation bargain bin.

Some game designers have come out to support the proposed move, but today's soapbox developer believes it would be very unfair to block the public's right to used games.

Re: Xbox 720 may 'block' used games

I read an article the other day that Sony was thinking about the same thing. I couldn't care less I only buy new games and I rarely sell them.

I thought I posted on here about Sony doing this with Playstation 4. I can see both companies talking to each other:

Sony: "Hi Microsoft. "I know we're rivals, but listen, I have a proposal"
Microsoft: "Is this about us lending you Halo in exchange for Uncharted on X Box?"
Sony: "Nah, cause Halo sucks now, Killzone is better"
Microsoft: "Fuck you it is. What do you want?"
Sony: "I think we should both launch in 2013, and ban used games. We're both losing money from this, right?
Microsoft: "But if you do that and we do not, We'd look like nice guys"
Sony: "And if you did it with us, you'd actually save money. People would just cave and accept it, the sheep won't dare stop buying games. And they'd buy more games new, so while you might look cooler, you'd make less money.
Microsoft: ok you make a good point. Ok, fuck the people, let's do it. We need to make more money anyhoe, we need to sell like 20 million units these days to break even.
Sony: 20 million? We had to sell 35 million!
Microsoft: Rofl @ you - how's that free online gaming working out? XBox Live ftw. By the way, how's that Kevin Butler guy doing? Saw him playing Wii a few months back. lol?
Sony: Fuck off, just block used games, kthx. *click*

Re: Xbox 720 may 'block' used games

I don't have a problem with it myself. It's inevitable. Plus, everything will eventually be going digital anyway. And on another note, I've never bought a used game in my life. So, doesn't really effect me anyway.

Re: Xbox 720 may 'block' used games

This is such a wonderful example of corporate greed. Let's not ignore the fact that 100s of millions of used games would go direct to land-fills as they wouldn't be of any further use. Businesses need to be held accountable to more than just the bottom line.


I love professional-wrestling.

Re: Xbox 720 may 'block' used games

What about used games that you bought for the original xbox and 360? Will it block them?

If so then this is bullshit, suddenly not being able to play a game would suck. In fact it is bullshit anyway.
