Thread: Xbox 720 not able to play used games .

  1. #1

    Default Xbox 720 not able to play used games .

    An unnamed source is telling video game news site Kotaku that the next version of Microsoft's Xbox will not play used games.The person, identified as a "reliable industry source" also told Kotaku that Xbox 720 will be able to play Blu-Ray discs, an option not offered on current versions of the Xbox. The next generation of Xbox is expected to be released later this year or early in 2013.


    If this is true , then i'm not buying the new Xbox . It might be better to buy steam's new console : The Steam Box .
    More on the Steam Box can be found here : Could This Be Valve’s New Console “SteamBox”? | Daily Gaming Network

    This is ball if this happens. Its means you cant play 360 games on it cos you need a code to activate the disk to play.

    I dont see this happening to be honest, unless you get a dongle with the game disc that has to be put in the console to play the game. It would be hard to enforce a system like this without making Xbox Live mandatory, which would not happen.
    XB1: Launch console - 500gb internal drive
    360: Jasper - 1tb drive - jtag hacked running the 16547 dashboard
    360: Falcon - 500gb drive hacked with hddhackr, not flashed

    I found a couple of errors in this quote of theirs and...

    1) That's very unlikely for Microsoft to do such thing, it's ridiculous and they know they'd lose people for an idiot reason.
    2) I hate that shitty name "Xbox 720" just stop it already.
    3) It's called Blu-ray Disc.

    I personally don't believe Microsoft would risk releasing a new console next year, everyone loves Xbox 360, the online gaming is awesome and a new one is bad timing. Give it 5-7 or 10 years, no need for a new console (except Nintendo which Wii was a PS2 better-ish).

    And.. rumours suck. That's all.

    I personally doubt it. The market for used game is too big to be ignored. And in addition it is one of the sources of success that could bring more turn over for a console and/or a game disc.

    "Xbox 720" is ridiculously stupid as "Dragon Ball Hoshi". Don't believe neither, it's fake bullshit.

    Microsoft's smarter than the fools who've put out these idiotic rumours out.
