Games Fiends writes, "As with anything so highly anticipated, rumors abound lately about both Microsoft’s and Sony’s soon to be announced consoles. As with all rumors, some are more credible than others, and some are simply fiction. However, the idea of locking out used games via codes and required constant connections, whether to combat piracy or simply to increase revenue flow, just keeps popping up. Verge is the latest to site “sources” who say this will be happening, but certainly not the first, and honestly, I think it’s a likely addition – if not now, then soon. PCs have made games single user for a long time, and with such massive budgets, companies are likely looking at every angle to increase profits. Unfortunately, in a scenario like this, the customers are the obvious losers."
