Games So, the Xbox One disaster continues. Microsoft's policy for dealing with the used games market has reportedly leaked - and it's a clear and direct attack to destroy the used games market. Prices for used games will be set at the retail value of a new game, and retailers have to hook into Microsoft's computer systems and comply with Microsoft's terms and conditions.

So what if I give a game to a friend?

So what if I give a game to a friend? I'm done with it, and I don't want to play it anymore. I'm not lending it to them. I'm giving it to them. Do I now have to go through a licensed used game dealer so that I can 'give' the game to my friend at a discounted price? Seriously, I wouldn't be surprised if GameStop simply refused to sell the new X Box (as it would kill their used game sales if it won).
