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.

I'd rather see people boycott Xbox rather than turn to piracy. Arguments about the moral high ground and peoples livelihoods aside, if people are pirating Xbox games then they're still buying the Xbox and Microsoft are still gaining over their competitors in the race of the highest market share (much like how pirated copies of Windows are still better for Microsoft than people switching to Linux / OS X).
