So, wait, if you leave your disc at a friend's house, they have to pay full retail price to unlock the game, but if you give your disc to Gamestop, the fee vanishes or is reduced somehow? It sounds to me like you're gonna have to pay the full price twice to buy a used game.

That's how I read it. This is going to destroy the used-game market (for Microsoft) because no one will do that.

Gamestop had already threatened to not sell the Xbone if it had anti-used game stuff (which makes prefect sense when you realize how much of GS' profits are from used games (all of them)). I wonder if they'll still consider this enough of an offense to pull any Xbone stuff from their stores. They probably will eventually anyway, as their used games won't be selling.

I just got an email from Gamestop advertising the XbOne and some next-gen games for it. Maybe they don't know yet.

But still, selling old 360 games and PS3/4 titles should keep GS afloat for a long while.

If Microsoft is doing it, I won't be surprised if Sony is doing it with PS4.

Looks like I'm sticking with Sony. I don't think they intend to do something that drastic.

How would Sony benefit from that? They have almost unanimous support because of the Xbone's vulnerability. Even if it was a hidden spec that they havent revealed to us, I doubt it would still be in their plans after the community response.

It wouldn't be particularly smart of them to, given how much of a backlash the XBox One is receiving overall. They probably could (and I wouldn't be shocked if they do, I guess), but they stand to gain major public relations points without even having to do anything if they just leave this whole thing alone. Probably the last thing I'd imagine they'd want to do is look at this whole mess and going "hey, that thing that's got everyone in an uproar against Microsoft, let's do that too".

Well they didn't say you could still buy used games, but there is a hassle to it still since you have to like unregister it or whatever from your account.

I think Sony should just allow used games to be sole, and played like normal. This would increase people's opinions of Sony. Also if it easier for used games to be sold on Sony, and Gamestop makes good profits from used game sales, then they may allow more space in their stores for Ps4 merchandise than for Xbox One merchandise which is an advantage for Sony as well.
