New Xbox with "Anti-Used Game"Technology?
To start this off, Kotaku isn't the most reliable source, but it's worth discussing anyway.
The "source" of Kotaku says, that the new Xbox will have a technology, that prevents you from using already "activated" games on your console. This technology isn't really something new though, because we have been using Multiplayer passes for the last months already. I'd hate it though, if we would be forced to have those passes for the whole game, including singleplayer.
On the other hand: Steam has done this for a long time already. You buy your game and can activate it once on your Steam account. It is different though for consoles. People lend their games to their friends, which would be impossible then.
It's all still a rumor and people would still buy the console sadly, if this happens. I certainly wouldn't.
