"Details soon" are the keywords here. There are no details, either you can freely trade in and sell/lend/rent games, or you can't. The fact that they mention details means there is a catch, plain and simple.
If all games are installed and they don't charge a fee, what's to stop someone from simply borrowing their friend's game and installing it on their system for free? Of going to GameStop and buying a used game, installing it and then returning it within their 7-day refund window?
There will be no fee in order to purchase used games.*
*There will be a fee if you wish to actually play the used game.
Kind of like all of the "free download" software on the internet. Yes, the download is free. Want to use the software you downloaded for free? That's $40 for the activation key.
PSN: JetPiIot (the "L" in pilot is actually a capital "i").
I've read the not true stuff which is why I made the topic, curious to see if the hate will drop now that that's come out, seeing as 75% of threads seem to be critisising this feature.
That's actually a very ambiguous response. The "details coming soon" comment might mean it is true, but they're going to characterize the used game fee as else, like an "additional profile" or "second console" fee.
We'll have to wait and see, but I'm not optimistic at this point.
As for the other bad news, I can really only speak for myself but . . .
-Kinect pack-in -Kinect connection required -Not much focus on games -Too much focus on securing things I don't care about, like a "premium" Halo tv show -Mandatory installs on a 500 GB HD . . . I have a PS3 with a 200 or 250 GH HD, I know how fast that's going to fill up.

The install supposedly links to a specific Xbox account / Gamertag OR the Xbox itself, so installing to infinite Xboxes is obviously not an option. Very little information on the whole thing. I was not impressed with the conference very much.
If you're omnipotent and all-powerful...why would you need to REST? On the 7th or ANY day?
