6 Reasons the Xbox 720 Wont block used games.

You might have noticed the recent brouhaha regarding rumours the next Xbox won't allow the use of pre-owned games. While initially that might seem like good business sense, given how often gamers opt for the dog-eared copy over the shrink-wrapped one, there are several reasons why it would be a bad idea. Six of them, in fact. Which we will relate to you now.

Of course this is just our take on the subject, do you have reasons that trump all of ours like Donald Trump playing the Top Trump card in a game of Top Trumps? Man, that word gets sillier the more I write it. Anyway, I digress. Let us know in the comments if you think we're a bunch of wrong idiots.

i hope they dont.. It might really hurt them if they go that route.. Some people dont have internet unfortunately..

Hopefully they won't. But I still say they're the only ones who have the gall to do it.

If the games are connected to a particular console as the rumors suggest, what happens to someone's games if their console breaks?

hellvaguy2037d ago

Not attached to a console, dunno how you came up with that idea. Games would be attached in the same they are with steam, xbl, and psn. To your user name.

Pachter commented on this a while ago, as much as everyone hates his predictions hes right.

Retailers stock MS/Sony products and are the primary method for selling their content. Blocking pre-owned would alienate most of these companies (Gamestop/Game for example) and the last thing you do is slap the companies who sell most of your content.

So by making LESS money by not allowing used games they would be greedy.

Your logic is astonishing

krisq2036d ago

How is it less money? If the rumors are true and every Xbox game will have a pass, you will need to buy it for pre owned games. Just like online pass today. MS earns nothing from used games on 360.
