Games At an event earlier today, Microsoft unveiled the next Xbox - the third model, but confusingly named Xbox One. The big focus was TV, integrated Kinect, and all the other stuff we all expected to be forced down our throats. I think it took them 25 minutes to actually come to what should be the core of the story: gaming. Nothing groundbreaking in the gaming department, except for how Microsoft intends to handle the used games market and borrowing games from friends: pay up, buddy!

It's likely the best way to measure console piracy would be an estimate, taken from the number of online active players at any one time, versus the number of unit sales. Sprinkle a bit of market research on just how many people buy used games, and just how many people play online, and you have yourself some very rough numbers of pirating customers.
