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.

Internet has change the way we access information, in the past sharing was confined to a small number of people but today sharing means thousands of people, in the past there were limitations that gave them some type of "protection" internet was slow, storage was limited and burnable media was scarce. The other way of protection is actually charging more to those who actually pay.

Video games are not like movies where most of the time you can at least recover your investment in the theaters and after that is all profit, video games have a small window of opportunity to make a profit.
