    Xbox One May Not Be Able To Be Sold Used

    Even more bad news for the Xbox One. Microsoft isnít commenting on whether the system can be sold used right now. This is an odd thing because if it was able to be sold into the second hand market then they would come out and say it.

    Xbox Support responded to a fan tweet about reselling an Xbox One like this:



    Wow. Things keep getting worse for this console. Hopefully Microsoft stops this discussion and confirms that the console can be re-sold to different people. Iím not sure why a major retailer like GameStop would even stock this console if it makes so many hoops for gamers looking for second hand content to jump through.

    Yeah, but they can tie it to one account so no one else can use it. I don't see this happening. It would be beyond stupid.

    Well they already said you can play games on another console by signing in with your tag. Kinda like you can do in the 360 with all your digital games now.

    Truth be told, I am guessing the "no comment" stuff is coming because they are revamping their policies. The XBox One site even said that the policies and such are not final and subject to change.

    They can remove the 24 hr check, drm, etc... or change its form before launch.

    On our forums, no comment means "no, you cannot sell your system 2nd hand, we want to $#@! you over..." On the outside, it could mean that they are shifting, or reworking policies and they can't comment on it.

    I refuse to believe a company as successful as MS are going to make consoles one off purchases.
    LMAO

    Yeah, good point. So the question is now why can't MS give a simple definitive answer to a simple question to minimize reckless speculation? The morons running Xbox One's PR should be fired.

    I don't see why not. Can they really afford to stick to their guns with this huge cloud of suspicion and negativity building up before launch? Maybe I'm being too hopeful.

    They won't call it backtracking. Microsoft will spin it to look like they just hadn't given all the info.

    Stupid decisions are made daily by successful corporations.

    They really need to squash this and release all info related to all their choices and decisions, because to be frankly honest

    Not one person will by into the no comment rule

    I think they need to bite the bullet and admit they were wrong. Apparently these decisions were made after focus group testing (all Microsoft employees?! Would make sense!). At first I was defending some of their policies, but now... now I can't.

    Honestly though, the info from the OP, from that support answer, is generic and useless; except to generate a rumor/hype, etc.

    I mean, you can go on there and ask them, "Does kinect work if I'm wearing two different colored socks?" or "How hot will the Xbox One get?" Either way you'll get the same answer "We do not have any information on that"

    No answer and that means the worst. You can't wear different color socks if you're using Kinect, and there isn't any way for the Xbox One to stay cool enough to use for more than x amount of time.

    That's the gaming industry for you, always trying to leave the difficulty even harder to achieve
