The battle between game companies and used game retailers has been ongoing for years. Game companies claim that used game sales undermine their bottom line, since they don’t receive a portion of the sale of used games. Used game retailers claim that they’re simply providing an in-demand service to consumers.
Well, it looks like Microsoft may be taking a controversial stance against used games — if these rumors are true. According to a “source”, the next Xbox will use some type of anti-used game technology.
If this is true, Microsoft risks alienating a substantial number of consumers who have expressed negative feelings about this rumor.
Would gamers really boycott the next Xbox if it couldn’t play used games?
