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.

Video games also work on offer demand principles, if a company has mores costumers prices will fall as simple as that.


Nope. The games cost more-or-less the same as they did during the NES-era, even though the amount of customers is multiple times bigger. Sure, development costs have also gone up, but there is no incentive for the companies to actually lower their prices when they can just pocket the difference and keep the price the same.

Just wait and you'll see.
