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.

I bought Borderlands 2 the day it came out because a friend loaned me a copy of Borderlands. I then turned around and bought my own copy so I could return the original copy.

Something that hasn't been touched on is that I've been known to take a chance on a popular new game I'm unsure about because I knew if I didn't like it I could turn around and sell it 'like new' on Amazon. Like I'm ever taking a chance on an XBOX One game while they're pulling this crap. No way.

Microsoft, you're making Sony look good to me, but even more, you're making the idea of skipping the whole next generation sound like a brilliant idea.

You're treating your paying customers like software pirates - and what's more, in your greed, you're actually building a market for competitors! I guess that's one way to avoid a monopoly... Kinda sick though, if you ask me.
