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!

I don't think this is a very good move by Microsoft.

The nice thing about Nintendo that you can always play games from the previous console or your new one. So buy a new generation console and still enjoy your old games.

You can't with the Xbox One. So you need to buy new games and it will be harder to resell them.

If I was a console gamer I'd check out the Nintendo and Sony offerings first or just go PC.
