On the Xbox One, Microsoft most likely gets a portion of every sale. On the sale of used Xbox 360 games, not Microsoft nor the publisher received any compensation. Microsoft has stated that they are not getting any kickback from the trade in/used games with Xbox One either. So where does MS stand to gain income from this bizarre change of DRM?
    I have no idea how they could be getting something out if it. It just seems logical that they are because they probably would have scrapped it immediately from the backlash but they are sticking to their guns. If they didn't benefit from it why would they be willing to tarnish their name with many consumers.

    Right....I know. So I want to know WHAT it is, because I am curious. It clearly must be possibly netting them millions and millions for a change like this.

    They could easily just have a deal with the publishers...there are numerous ways to work something out. They can deny involvement by saying that they don't get a direct cut but that doesn't mean they don't have some sort of a benefit.

    As MS would know exactly what's going on, publishers can't hide anything.

    That is one scenario I am taking into consideration that is for sure. I imagine the used game sales serial keys have to pass through the Xbox One/Xbox Live authentication system. Maybe Microsoft will get X dollars from every used key that is redeemed.

    Not unless they have a deal in place with these participating retailers. You know giving them an ultimatum, you can pay us or you are going to be screwed because you can't sell our used games at all. Only thing I can think of. Or advertising, by requiring the connection therefore requiring you to check in you will see revolving ads. Last one is just a serious reaching guess. I honestly don't know.

    I'm guessing they put in place a way for "participating" retailers to de-register games that are traded in so that they will work for other customers. Otherwise, if the game is tied to a Xbox One account, you'll get a message saying someone else owns this game. Just a guess, but they would have to have some far reaching system of tracking these games so the DRM will work.

    What really sucks is that this could differ from one publisher to the next. The publisher's create their own policy.
