    No used games? That way (which by jumping to conclusions I'm assuming means that you'll need to register an IP or something that only one or two systems can use), people won't even leave their houses to play on a friend's system. Instead, they'll just play online. Plus, it'll also nullify the secondary market, which means that you won't even need to leave your houses to buy a used game. Instead, you'll just order a new one online.


    Brilliant.

    They're going for the 720? That sounds so cliched. Have companies ran out of good names for cosoles?

    No way they are going with 720.

    360 at least had a meaning.

    So does 720, at least in terms of quality grading. That's probably what they're going for, I dunno.

    Yeah, because when I want my gaming news, I clearly go for Yahoo. Call me when the console actually gets revealed instead at next year's E3.

    If the used games thing is real, PC gaming will take over for me. I already game on both consoles, and my PC, so it wouldn't be a hassle to not have consoles.

    I'd imagine it won't be "no used gaming" so much as "you buy the game with a limited license to use on X number of systems" and if you want to use it on more than that, you need to purchase an additional license.

    IIRC this is a model some PC games and other software uses, so while it sucks it's within their rights to put into action. We've always got the choice of not getting on board with it of course.

    Go ahead and get your 360. I don't think the Xbox 720 or Durango or whatever it'll be called is something you should worry about.

    If you want to pay 60 bucks a year to play online in a game you paid 20 - 60 bucks for, go ahead.

    I remember back when you could walk into a video store with 5 bucks and a phone number, and walk out with almost any game in the store under the understanding that you'd bring it back in a week without losing the instructions after you and at least one friend played the shit outa it.

    I heard they wont be going with the no used games thing. If either sony or microsoft implemented it, they would immediately lose to the other company, thus neither is going to. So I heard anyway. Guess wont know for sure for a bit

    Or you could wait 12 days until E3. If the 720 is coming out in 2013, it will probably be revealed at E3.
