    Default This is how Xbox One game trade-ins will work, apparently



    If you want to trade in an Xbox One game you will need to find a shop that has agreed to Microsoft's terms and is therefore connected to the Xbox One cloud.

    The game will be registered as traded in and will be wiped from your Xbox Live account. The shop can resell it for whatever price it likes but the game's publisher now takes a cut and so does Microsoft, a source-based MCV report revealed.

    Anyone buying that second-hand game will need to pay an activation fee of 35, a separate unconfirmed report on ConsoleDeals.co.uk claimed.

    The same report [did not say a shop's cut from that second-hand sale could be as low as 10 per cent -Bertie] said shops could be forced to sell second-hand games at a maximum discount of 10 per cent.

    Combine that measly 10 per cent discount and the 35 activation fee and you have figures that add up to not much sense at all for the shopper.

    "We have only confirmed that we designed Xbox One to enable our customers to trade in and resell games at retail," said Microsoft on the matter.

    We know that Xbox One games will be tied to both a gamer's account and their Xbox One. Everyone who has an account on that Xbox One can play the game linked to it. If the game is played elsewhere on another Xbox One, however, only the owner's Xbox Live account can play it.

    Rumours of an activation fee are what we believe has been holding Microsoft back from explaining second-hand Xbox One sales so far. Whether that's because the fee is high, as claimed here, or because there are specific retailer partnerships to announce, as also suggested here, isn't clear. Both, perhaps? E3 should clear the matter up, unless Microsoft's forced to respond sooner.

    This seems to me kind of outrageous. Like. Maybe I'm not understanding fully, but this seems like it will cause a lot of confusion for returning a game. And does the original buyer get anything in return for the games? Like credits or something.

    He gets the joy of knowing he's helping a greedy company make more money for no reason and making the user have less to no freedom.

    That cancels out any type of Craigslist sales for games then. However, I don't think this a confirmed story. I'll wait until E3 comes around.
