“Xbox 720 Won’t Block Used Games” Source says

Gaming Capacity - With almost every game journalism site reporting that the Xbox ’720′ will not allow used games to be played on the console, it’s easy to start believing it. These sites however all report the exact same information with just a few of the usual tweaks to make the story seem unique, all while citing the same original source. Finding this report highly unlikely, this journalist did a little digging and asked some questions of an inside source.

In my opinion, i see no benefit at all for a publisher or console maker to block used games. DLC arrived this gen and is here to stay and blocking used games will drastically reduce their revenue from DLC. I believe online passes will become more common because it is a better option for publishers while still keeping retailers happy.

So the word of a Eidos CEO and EDGE vs a unknown website. I would believe the former before the latter.

Welshy1242d ago

I'd believe any other site over EDGE. EDGE is the equivalent to a turd in terms of its journalism and fact checking...

The word of any website vs Microsofts official reveal. Yeah, I will wait for Microsofts official reveal before I listen to any rumour about the console (good or bad).

Funny that the vast majority of people on this website don't think like you, which is a shame.

The problem with this site is there is no quality control on what’s posted, if you haven't heard it from MS or Sony all you’re reading is rumours.

A gamer who spends too much time reading the articles on this site would come away knowing less than if he had read nothing at all.

Wonder if MS is setting up this conference just to dismiss most of the negative rumors currently surrounding them.

No, they will reveal what they want when they want, they cant let rumors force their hand. If you are a journalist and you cant get leaks that are typical when it comes to new consoles, you invent something to get a response. Microsoft has had top security on their next console, I think that bugs a lot of people and making false claims and starting rumors to goad a response is quite normal in the business world.

Microsoft cant react to that, because they never react to rumors or speculation.

Of course it won't.
