XBOX 720 May Block Used Games
Here's my issue/complaint*:
Microsoft may be discontinuing the ability to play used games on the XBOX 720.
If this is the case I've decided I'm done buying consoles and I'm sticking to PC gaming.
I am a loyal customer and purchased both the XBOX and XBOX 360 shortly after their release and have been a consistent XBOX LIVE member for 3 years.
I own a plethora of used games because I cannot afford to purchase more than a small amount of the games which are released for XBOX 360.
I also still enjoy some of my XBOX titles.
This statement recently caught my attention:
If a disc is watermarked and won't play on any console but the first one it's entered in.
Even if this isn't true I am stating my dissent toward such a setup for the following reasons:
a) You wouldn't be able to take your game a friend's place and play on two consoles already setup there, you HAVE to tote your XBOX everywhere with you.
b) This has the potential to destroy businesses and jobs formed around used consoles and games.
c) Once I purchase a game, as long as I don't copy it, I should OWN that one copy and be allowed to transfer or sell it, just like a used car.
If this type of restriction is put in place on XBOX consoles I will be forced to stop purchasing these products and gaming titles.
