Games "Microsoft has sensationally abandoned its controversial plans to restrict the sharing of XBox One games, and has also removed daily online authentication requirements for its forthcoming console", reports The Guardian. They had no choice. Still a good move.

You must have no familiarity with the used goods market. It's necessary to have those kinds of markups to make a make enough money to keep the lights on. It's not a matter of getting somebody's worn out disc, marking it up dramatically and getting rich off it. You have to hope to sell this used item you just put cash into, and risk taking a bath on it. Most of them will sit on the shelf for a long time before moving.

Blame new games being over-priced instead.
