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 for every game sold and the buyer must also pay £35 just to active what he/she has bought no one will bother anymore


Wouldn't Finnish consumer protection laws prevent this kind of thing though?
"

No. You can still sell what you've bought and Microsoft has no say on that, but the laws do not state anything about online services having to play the ball, too; the part where the game is associated with a Xbox Live - account is a service and thus falls under different set of laws.
