Would you guys be willing to rebuy your XBLA games on the Next Xbox if Microsoft required you to, like what Nintendo is doing with the Wii U's Virtual Console games? - Results (178 votes)

Could Microsoft get away with doing that? And would you guys be okay with rebuying your XBLA games on the Next Xbox if they did?

i highly doubt Ms would force people to re-buy arcade games if/when you move from one console to the next. and if they did, thats a really great way of losing alot of customers.

Wii U isn't making you rebuy your games, you can still play them on the Wii Dashboard app, they give you the option to upgrade to the Wii U versions, which add in gamepad gameplay.

Bro, when you tack on mass, you sacrifice flexibility. That's just a straight up fact

Nope, I'm just cheap that way I guess.

Then again I only own ONE arcade game and haven't played it in over a year lol

definitely a mistake on Nintendo's part and I think Nintendo is/was a great company...

If this was like what Nintendo is doing, they'd have new functionality, like 3D or Kinect controls.

I'd rebuy a couple that I really really liked, certainly not all of them.

More importantly this is not at all what Nintendo is doing and to say they are is pretty unfair. They're basically charging like a dollar for the ability to play your game on the Wii U w/o having to go into "Wii Mode" first. Really not a big deal at all.
