Kotaku: Trusted Source Claims Xbox 720 Won’t Play Used Games

How excited are you for the new Xbox 720? Well unfortunately this news is not the type you want to hear when talking about the next-gen home consoles. That’s for sure.

Kotaku has released a report stating that a “trusted industry source” has told them that Microsoft plans to integrate an anti-used game system… Yes you read that right boys and girls, Microsoft plans to keep gamers from buying and playing used games. However the source says he is unsure of what type of system could be implemented to accomplish is goal. The obvious approach would be to use some sort of pass code linking your live account to the game similar to the online passes developers are currently using.

So let’s just think about this for a moment.

If Microsoft implemented a system like this and you wanted to bring a game you just bought to a friends house you would either have to bring your Xbox, hdd, or use account recovery. Ok well, that’s not too bad, I suppose.

Still getting close to stepping over some ethical boundaries. Is that even legal? What do you think? Sound out in the comments section below!
