HUGG Writes: Unless you have been living under a rock for the last few days, you will have probably heard about the rumoured Microsoft plans that charge customers for the privilege of playing pre-owned games.
The rumoured plans include taking a cut of used games sales at high street retailers as well as charging a fee of £35 to activate a game on your own system if the game had been previously activated else where.
This news has rightfully caused quite a stir and Microsoft have done nothing to stem the flow of criticism, only confirming their intent to "enable our customers to trade in and resell games at retail" but "beyond that, we have not confirmed any specific scenarios."
After getting a bit of a bee in out bonnet about it, something didn't sit quite right with us, so we decided to do a bit of research in the legality of these rumoured plans.
The results may suprise!
