Now if both do that then I guess I'll have to rethink it.....
I'm just very used to buying used to save money etc... Not to mention trying to recoup some money be trading or selling would be a big hit to me.
$60 for a game isn't cheap, and the industry is in for a shock when they expect the same sales they have now while blocking used games.

I will never purchase a console that blocked used or borrowed games. There would be hell in the media if Sony put out a bluray player that blocks rented movies, but it's somehow okay to do with games.

Just because Sony backed off of it before the ps3 launched in 2006 doesn't mean it's still off the table. The industry would love it and would try it today if they could. They can't wait until the digital distribution future where consumers pay $60 for limited licenses instead of physical discs that can be sold.

Good luck with that.

Also at that no used games rumor. Wtf is that nonsense? I doubt it's true (and I'm sure more than half of these rumors coming out every day won't end up being true), but if it is.....wow.

No rentals? If anything it'll cut into sales.
They're either going to have to stop making 6 hour games or start having Steam like sales.

Re: Xbox 720

It's going to happen eventually. The only reason this new xbox even has a blu ray drive at all is because internet bandwidth is still too low to download games/movies in a reasonable amount of time. Once that happens, say goodbye to rentals and used games. It'll be replaced with downloads, demos, and F2P with in game purchases.

Re: Xbox 720

I cant wait to see a detailed specification and feature list for this thing. As the year moves on we should be getting more details.....E3 should be amazing this year.

Re: Xbox 720

I just found this about the potential grahics card, the radeon 6670....seems kinda week:

http://techreport.com/discussions.x/22366

Granted, a console does not need as powerful a card as a PC but the author brings up a good point about this being old tech already and by the time of release in fall of 2013 it will be ancient.

The tech in current consoles was already old when they were released yet people in this thread think we don't need new consoles.
