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.

Let's put an example, when you purchase a movie theater ticket, the ticket is not the movie itself, is just a permission to watch the movie


Right but I'm also allowed to give my ticket to anyone else or even sell it.

Developing software specially games is not easy, is really expensive, not every product is successful even if it is technically good.


And that's different from, say, building cars or airplanes or stereos or computers? Sorry, software and games are not uniquely hard and expensive to make.
