Pre-Owned Xbox One Games Policy U-Turn

Posted 22 June 2013 - By Mike Green

Microsoft Xbox One Game U-Turn

Microsoft has reversed their previous decision to restrict the trade of pre-owned games for the upcoming Xbox One console.

This move, together with the requirement of the console having to connect to the internet at least every 24 hours to play games, caused a backlash amongst the gaming community with many avid Xbox fans vowing to defect to the new PlayStation 4. In contrast Sony announced with pleasure that the PS4 would have no such restrictions and with a cheaper price tag.

Together this has contributed to Microsoft's dramatic U-turn which applies to physical discs only (not downloaded games).

Previously the policy was that games could only be traded once and to people who have been on your friends list for 30 days or more or officially approved participating retailers.
