"Participating retailers" means Microsoft sets the trade-in prices

If you buy a brand new Xbox One game and dont like it, want to get most your money back by selling it, you have to settle for the price the retailers allow. Meaning no, you cant sell it for $50, if the trade in value is $20 the day of release you are stuck with it

They never said who the authorized resellers would be. Amazon and Ebay might be on the list for all we know.

Meaning we might have to actually hold game reviewers to a standard? Ugh.

Weren't the Xbone fans just screaming their heads for the last two weeks not to make baseless assumptions? Looks like the shoe is on the other foot now.

I think what this means, is that to remove DRM link between account and disk will require some sort of software, that'll cost money, so only certain game specialist chains will choose to buy it.

It is an equally baseless assumption that they won't be.

I could possibly see Amazon, but Ebay, no way. That would be a huge undertaking.

I think that EA, Ubisoft, Activsion and so on will be most likely setting the prices. Those 3 have been been complaining about used games sales this whole previous generation.

Or you could just borrow the game off your friend before you buy it.

Wait...

What's that...?!

Oh yeah. M$ totally screwed us all in that respect too.

I agree. I could see them going off some sort of timing schedule where a game out for 0-6 months is worth this much, 6-12 months is worth this much and so on.
