Games At an event earlier today, Microsoft unveiled the next Xbox - the third model, but confusingly named Xbox One. The big focus was TV, integrated Kinect, and all the other stuff we all expected to be forced down our throats. I think it took them 25 minutes to actually come to what should be the core of the story: gaming. Nothing groundbreaking in the gaming department, except for how Microsoft intends to handle the used games market and borrowing games from friends: pay up, buddy!

Microsoft will have some sort of special programmer for resellers, they've said as much on the Xbox One's FAQ.

If that is the case then they are breaking the law in several countries. Resale of a used product can not be limited without written consent by the customer and can not be enforced by the seller without consent of the judicial body that approved such an contract.
If one gets to resell, then all have the rights to resell.

This might not be the case in the few EULA countries, but in most others.

On the other hand, the expo on the new device made it very clear that it is aimed at the US/CA markets primarily.
