Sony's next-generation PS4 unveil is just two weeks away, which means leaks
concerning both it and Microsoft's next-generation Xbox Durango (sometimes
referred to as the Xbox 720), are at an all-time high as well. Rumors
continue to swirl that the next iteration of Xbox will lock out used games
entirely and require a constant Internet connection. New games would come
with a one-time activation code to play. Use the code, and the game is
locked to the particular console or Xbox Live account it's loaded on.
Physical games will still be sold (the Durango reportedly supports 50GB
Blu-ray Discs), but the used game market? Kiboshed.
If this is true, it's an ugly move on Microsoft's part. Not only does it
annihilate the right of first sale, it'll eviscerate any game store or
business that depends on video game rentals for revenue.
