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.

The blurry line between fair use and developers and publishers bankruptcy

There's no blurry line.

but developers have the right to protect their profit after all without that there would be no amazing games.

Except that in many countries with decent consumer protection developers, or publishers actually, have no right to dictate what I do with merchandise after I have purchased it. I can give it to a friend, sell it to some guy on the street or tear it to shreds and burn it. It is none of their business.
