If they block used games, they better significantly lower the price of new games. $60 dollars is too much. If the price remains at $60 still, you better be very discriminatory about what new game you buy... make dang sure you don't waste $60 on a mediocre game or game you won't like.

Wow, love my Xbox but if this is true, I doubt I'll be getting Microsoft's next system. Used games are great for when you don't wanna dish out $60 for a game that may not even last you a week or two. No physical copy of games sounds stupid as hell as well. I mean, what happens if you wanna let a friend borrow a game or bring a game over to their house or something like that?


I don't know, I just can't see an internet only game system with no used games and/or no physical game copies succeed.

Silver Lining: Maybe game quality will see an enormous jump and no one will want to trade in games because thry are so amazing.

Doesn't matter, expectations will be raised and people will go back to complaining.

I don't really like the direction the entire industry has been heading recently with it literally trying to milk us for every last penny so if this is true and the PS4 as well, I think I'll just be skipping out on the next generation.

I'd love to say Im just going to skip a gaming generation, but that never happens. When games like Uncharted and Gears come along, I have to play those games.

I'll tell you one thing though, except for the exclusives, Steam will be getting the majority of my cash next generation, if for no other reason, you cant beat their mid week and weekend sale. I got 5 games and only spent maybe $50.

I get what they are trying to do but I think this will hurt Microsoft and if Sony is smart they won't do this with the PS4. Personally I don't care cause I'm going to be switching over to PC gaming soon.

Its not the used games which are killing me. I'm not even a fan of physical media, what is killing me is the online aspect. Due to this snow storm, I spent 4 hours today without the internet. That's 4 hours without my xbox if they force you to be online all the time.

Also, does this mean we'll get lag in our single player games, like in Diablo 3?

Yeah I'm not liking having to be connect to the internet all the time to play my games. I mean this is problem with some of the games on the Xbox360. I couldn't continue playing some of my games because of DLC was requiring me to be connected to the internet while I was playing.

You're comparing apples to oranges.In steam you can play games without using an internet connection. Remember the backlash with Diablo 3? You claimed that its already been happening but console are different from PC's, they're just 2 different worlds
