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.

Sure cars are also designed and there is research but the teams are a lot smaller, most engines were already developed years ago, chassis are almost the same across the same line, most of the time they just get a facelift


Oh, you mean just like how most games today use existing 3d engines, physics engines, AI systems and scripting languages?
Facelift? I see, quite unlike the gigantic differences between Madden 2011 and Madden 2012 or FIFA 2008 and FIFA 2009 or L4D and L4D2...
Oh yeah, the game industry is never resting on the laurels.

and most importantly the production cost is divided by each assembled car during the production time


And unlike a game, each new car costs a significant amount of money to manufacture while a new DVD costs close to nothing and a new digital copy does cost nothing.
