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!

That's the whole point..

Pirates are not willing to spend money, its a waste of effort trying to get them to do so.

Those who buy used games or lend their games to friends *are* willing to spend money, so you expend effort to screw more of it out of them.

They aren't? Most of the recent studies actually say that pirates are among the people who spend the MOST money on the same stuff they pirate. Hell, I belong in that same group myself.

Ah but you see, but those studies aren't sponsored by the entertainment industry and the software giants so they are obviously unreliable.
