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.

Microsoft does not want a repeat of the ipod/iphone/ipad debacle (for them), and they're trying to anticipate Apple's move into the teevee/living room space (if there is any truth to some rumors) by making the xbox ecosystem very attractive to the interests of (large) content providers.

It'd be interesting to see the price points for this generation of consoles.
