New XBox 720 to kill off second hand games?

I wont buy one if these rumours are true....and they probably are.




http://www.edge-online.com/news/the-...nd-new-kinect/




Microsoft’s next console will require an Internet connection in order to function, ruling out a second-hand game market for the platform. A new iteration of Xbox Live will be an integral part of Microsoft’s next console, while improved Kinect hardware will also ship alongside the unit.

Sources with first-hand experience of Microsoft’s next generation console have told us that although the next Xbox will be absolutely committed to online functionality, games will still be made available to purchase in physical form. Next Xbox games will be manufactured on 50GB-capacity Blu-ray discs, Microsoft having conceded defeat to Sony following its ill-fated backing of the HD-DVD format. It is believed that games purchased on disc will ship with activation codes, and will have no value beyond the initial user.

Our source has also confirmed that the next Xbox’s recently rumoured specs are entirely accurate. That means an AMD eight-core x64 1.6GHz CPU, a D3D11.x 800MHz graphics solution and 8GB of DDR3 RAM. As of now, the console’s hard drive capacity is said to be undecided, but Microsoft’s extended commitment to online delivery suggests that it will be the largest unit it has put inside a console to date.

Though the architectures of the next-gen Xbox and PlayStation both resemble that of PCs, several development sources have told us that Sony’s solution is preferable when it comes to leveraging power. Studios working with the next-gen Xbox are currently being forced to work with only approved development libraries, while Sony is encouraging coders to get closer to the metal of its box. Furthermore, the operating system overhead of Microsoft’s next console is more oppressive than Sony’s equivalent, giving the PlayStation-badged unit another advantage.

Unlike Nintendo, Microsoft is continuing to invest heavily in motion-control interfaces, and a new, more reliably responsive Kinect will also ship alongside the next Xbox. Sony’s next-generation console camera system is said to have a similar set of features, and is expected to be discussed at the company’s PlayStation event on February 20.

PS+ is a better deal than Live IMO.

I just think it's stupid how you have to pay for the Live service just to use Netflix. It's one thing to pay to play games online, even though PS3 is free and just as good no matter what they say, coming from someone who owns both consoles and plays both equally.

But the way they're going with gaming, paired with me getting older and caring about gaming less and less all the time, I just may not get the new consoles. Especially considering most of the newer games suck complete donkey dick anyway.

I have a 2nd Gen PS3 and highly doubt that i'll upgrade to the new console. The extinction of used games and my new love affair with my PC's (i have 3 at home that have been built in the last year or two) is enough to make me not wanna drop the cash for the new console....well....i shouldn't say that.....I might pick one up years down the road when the price has dropped considerably.

i think also, its easier for parents to buy games for their kids if all they need to know is if their kid has a wii, sony, or xbox. they don't want to have to look at minimum system requirements, and remember what shit their kid has. most people don't know enough about computers to build their own anyways, so consoles appeal to a lot of people.

The thing is, all the game makers are doing the same thing. Your ps3 games will be hard to trade in soon enough. Like I said, its already happening. Both my battlefield 3 and I think COD needed an online pass to work.

It gets even easier when all they have to do is buy "credits" and let the kid download whatever they want.

Yep, that's what I mentioned before.

If you buy an EA Sports title 2nd-hand, you have to pay $10-$15 extra to participate in the online community, which includes downloading custom rosters and sliders.

It's actually EXPLODING, mostly because the casual gaming scene is HUGE money just in sheer numbers alone.

Oh, my bad.

I thought you were talking about the NEXT generation.

I already consider the PS4/XBox 720 to be the CURRENT generation since they're all but guaranteed to ship this Christmas season now...
