Retailers explain how pre-owned Titles will work on Xbox One

And the confusion continues.

Posted By | On 25th, May. 2013

Ever since the announcement of Xbox One the consumers have been going wild due to the confusion of how pre-owned titles would work on the Xbox One. Several Microsoft employees tried to explain but have failed multiple times and caused nothing but more frustration and anger for the fans.

The first few updates suggest that Xbox One would require a fee to be paid when playing a used game after the game disc has been de-authorized on a previous system.

However, several Retail sources have told MCVUK the following regarding how it pre-owned games would work between the company and retail stores.

1) The game would have to be checked in every 24 hours via online while your Xbox One is connected to the internet

2) It’s possible to sell an owned game to a retailer only to those who have agreed to Microsoft’s T&C

3) Publisher of the title will receive a certain % cut of the sale

The latest update to this story was posted by Larry Hyrb on his Major Nelson Blog and this what he has stated regarding the Xbox One used-games topic.

“The ability to trade in and resell games is important to gamers and to Xbox. Xbox One is designed to support the trade in and resale of games. Reports about our policies for trade in and resale are inaccurate and incomplete. We will disclose more information in the near future.”
