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.

It's not the same thing when it involves physical media that have been purchased. And for the price I'm expected to pay for a new game I damn well own that copy.

It is the same thing and been like that for a while now. Most games on PC whether they are disk or come from an online store won't want to start unless they get connected to an online account.

Half Life 2 was one of the first games I believed that did this. Except again this is easily forgotten.

]And yet, the industry keeps growing an' growing and is profitable.

And the development costs keep on growing as well. Also it is totally besides the point.
