Games "Microsoft has sensationally abandoned its controversial plans to restrict the sharing of XBox One games, and has also removed daily online authentication requirements for its forthcoming console", reports The Guardian. They had no choice. Still a good move.

Indeed! Recently an independent used game shop opened up near me, and I was able to trade in a few shitty DS games I never play towards store credit. I got over twice what I would have from Gamestop, if they even would have bought those titles from me in the first place. I then used that credit to buy a few excellent classic GameBoy games that would have cost me three times as much on eBay or even play-asia.com.

I'm all for keeping the used game market alive, even if that means the bad stores like Gamestop still exist.
