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.

We all have done it, is legal, we all have friends but developers have the right to protect their profit after all without that there would be no amazing games.

This is a terrible, terrible wording. Nobody has a right to profit. And nobody has a right to protect anything by trampling on the rights of others. This is another real "old Europe" achievement, look it up.

I totally agree with your sentiment...

Then I looked up "old Europe" as you suggested but couldn't see how it related to what Microsoft are doing.

If anything "old Europe" seemed to a body upholding the rights of others in the face of disingenuous arguments for starting a war.
