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.

Member since:

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

Nobody, nowhere, has a "right" to profit! Period.

Everyone has the option of going into business and trying to sell things. But nobody has a "right" to actually make money and stay in business.

If you have a product or service that people want to pay for, and that you can sell for more than it costs to produce, great!

But don't go complaining about your "right to profit" if nobody wants your product/service, or you can't sell enough, or you can't sell it for more than it costs to produce.

Adapt, or get out of the business. Simple as that.
