But what if you want to bring a game disc to a friend's house and play there? You'll have to pay a feeóand not just some sort of activation fee, but the actual price of that gameóin order to use a game's code on a friend's account. Think of it like a new game, Harrison says.

"The bits that are on that disc, you can give it to your friend and they can install it on an Xbox One," he said. "They would then have to purchase the right to play that game through Xbox Live."

"They would be paying the same price we paid, or less?" we asked.

"Letís assume itís a new game, so the answer is yes, it will be the same price," Harrison said.

So how does gamestop combat this? You buy a used game from them for $5 less than new and still have to pay the fee of a new priced version?

No way this can work in Gamestops favor.
