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.

Didn't really take much googling did it? This was a massive story because Modern Warfare came out short before-hand.

This would be the only reliable source (but because it comes from Microsoft it probably tainted ... so I already know what you are going to day) of data because on PC you are trying to make me prove a negative. It like trying to measure the Desktop Linux install base ... you can't.

Following this ban, a large number of modded Xbox 360 consoles are being put up for sale on sites such as Craigslist. The average price for such a console is now around $90, much under the normal market price of around $200. Precaution when buying such a console is advised, as Microsoft warned that anyone who accidentally purchased a modded Xbox 360 console would not receive any help or compensation from the company


Everyone knows it exists and it happens. Playing dumb like this Thom is quite frankly tiring.
