Microsoft to block second hand games, always online requirement for Xbox 720 – Report
Microsoft will block second hand games, it has been revealed by the way of an Edge rumour–which to say, could be really accurate. They say that the console will also be always online and it is required to function.
Now this is the dumbest move ever by Microsoft, and they’re basically thinking the Xbox brand is strong enough to make people buy the console irrespective of that.
Edge have also mentioned that the next Xbox will have a new Kinect sensor, and will also contain a 50GB Blu Ray drive.
They have also confirmed the specs: They say it will be an AMD eight-core x64 1.6GHz CPU, a D3D11.x 800MHz graphics solution and 8GB of DDR3 RAM.
” A new iteration of Xbox Live will be an integral part of Microsoft’s next console, while improved Kinect hardware will also ship alongside the unit,” Edge reports.
