The Wii U has a better long life than the Xbox One, so does the PS4. Even the SNES of 20 years ago will show to have a better long life than the Xbox One. What does this mean in terms of long life? When the Xbox One was revealed the news was revealed by media sources that secondhand games will require a fee to actually play the game. This is a greedy and terrible business move by Microsoft. Stores like Gamespot and EB Games in Australia will hate the idea of Microsoft putting a stop to pre-owned games. It’s the bread and butter of their business.
One of the directors at Microsoft Larry Hryb said “We know there is some confusion around used games on Xbox One and wanted to provide a bit of clarification on exactly what we’ve confirmed today,” Hryb said. “While there have been many potential scenarios discussed, today we have only confirmed that we designed Xbox One to enable our customers to trade in and resell games at retail.”
