Why buy games for the current Xbox 360 - because there's still good new games coming out to play before the Xbox One will arrive. I guess if you plan to quit gaming, then you could just let your junk run out and be done. Otherwise, the same Xbox Live services will continue to exist, so if you do plan to keep gaming then...

Anyway, looking forward to E3 next week and hoping they'll give some more information to clarify used/rental/borrowing games, and other things that people just can't seem to get the facts straight on.

BTW, I can't find any delete account option, you must have hidden it....

More news.

No renting, no loaning. No private sales (unless selling to someone who has been on your friends list for 30 days)

Console Checks in Every 24 hours

Trade-ins are up to the publisher and only at participating retailers

You can give a game to a friend only if they have been on your friends list for 30 days, and then it is stuck with them.

Up to 10 family members can play your games from any console at any time.

Polygon: Xbox One policy "gross, despicable, greedy, pathetic, cowardly"

<blockquote class="ipsBlockquote">

After a month of vague corporate comments from Microsoft executives, we now know the Xbox One's game licensing policy was written from the ground up for companies. It's aggressively anti-consumer and anti-middle class, and it outright ignores underprivileged gamers. It's gross, despicable, greedy, pathetic, cowardly and out of touch with a growing global resentment for corporations.

Wall Street Journal: Xbox One - "You own an object, but you merely access a service"

<blockquote class="ipsBlockquote">

No longer will video games be like books or old-fashioned music CDs, self-contained content that works anywhere, anytime, and can be resold or lent to any of your friends. Xbox One games are part physical disc, part online service, and tightly controlled both my Microsoft and the game publisher.

...

“This new generation of games,” as Microsoft describes it, is worth putting into context: It’s the final stage in the transition of video games from goods, sold as a physical object that you own, to services, delivered online in tandem with a disc you buy in a store.

You own an object, but you merely access a service.

RedBox Going to War With Xbox One

<blockquote class="ipsBlockquote">

Earlier today, Redbox sent out a text message to people subscribed to its "Text Club,” a service that allows Redbox users to receive movie/game information as well as promo codes directly from the rental company on their mobile phone. The text that I got today was neither, however, instead pointing me to a website to share my thoughts about the future of video games, a couple days before E3.

The website that it points to is Gamingfuture.net, a site put up by Redbox. On the page, it allows users to discuss about “the future of video gaming.”

“Have you heard about what’s coming? Reports say that Microsoft’s Xbox One and Sony’s PlayStation 4 might have enhanced graphics, enhanced motion control, cloud-based storage, new games and experiences. But you might not be able to play without an Internet connection, lend games freely, buy used games or rent games.”

It then encourages users to share “what excites you about the future of gaming… and what concerns you.”
