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!

"We can confirm that the article stating Xbox One will charge fees to play used games is NOT correct. ^PJ"

Wrong.

It is confusing because two different statements have been made -

Plus, this article from this AM clearly states things are in the works and gives details on 'paying' for used games.
