With the new machines, pushing a used game from Best Buy, Game Stop or whoever else, cannot be played on the new machine.

I have Xfinity, it is good; but, usually fire it up on the computer online for older movies.

I know some gamers that worship xbox, i.e. that is their play toy.

I have the PS3, XBOX360 and the Wii. I prefer the PS3. My son like the XBOX. But the Wii is still like new. That is becuse no one plays it.

No used games on next Xbox?

A report from Edge Online, citing sources with first hand experience of Microsoft's next generation Xbox console, suggests that the anticipated console will not allow used games. Even though games will be sold in physical form, they will come with activation codes that are useless beyond the initial user.

The report also says that the new Xbox will require a constant Internet connection to function, with a huge Xbox Live overhaul to be a core part of the system.

Games sold in physical form will be on 50GB Blu-ray discs, according to the report.
Dont buy it...

Good lord how do you all have time to play kiddie games? I am too busy with family, work, guns, shooting, hunting, fishing, riding quads, romancing my wife. I hardly have time to sleep. Maybe some of you need to get OUT DOORS more. Just the view from an old fart.

If you take out riding quads and fishing then you would have time!!! Just a view from a middle aged fart.

I like Ninetendo because of the reverse compatibly they build in, Microsoft seems to have no need for it. Won't get my business.

Ever want to rent a game before you buy for $60 and see if you like it? If this is true then you won't be able to do that. Your friend wants to bring over a game to your house and play it, he will have to bring his entire gaming system with him.

Do you ever still play old game systems? I play Super Nintendo sometimes still, if this plan goes through then this gaming system would stop working when Microsoft decides to stop supporting it.

Imagine buying a gun and it only works when you specifically request to use it from the manufacturer and if they ever decide to stop supporting you it stops working forever. That's what this plan would mean.

It is just speculation at this point but it would not be unheard of in the gaming industry. The results usually mean pushing customers elsewhere or high rates of piracy.
