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 know plenty more people who buy used games, than people who buy used consoles. I can't imagine why Microsoft would want to limit the used game market. This will put off many people from buying their console at all, which means reduced revenue for MS. I believe this situation to be inevitable, but I figure the game publishers would be doing something along these lines, such as limiting content without an online key.
