As reported in our previous article, it seems that Microsoft will be eliminating the used game market with the introduction of the Xbox 720. It has been sourced that this system will implement an anti-used game functionality that will render titles useless after their first activation.
In response to this, GameStop's stock prices have already fallen 6.1% today, via Google. As many of you know, GameStop brings in large amounts of revenue through the used game market. From the actions taken by Microsoft to eliminate the used game market, GameStop, as well as other retailers that operate in this market, will take a huge financial hit.
Clearly, GameStop investors have realized this, which have created this massive downfall in the stock price for this company. Although it has not been officially confirmed that Microsoft will be eliminating the use of used games with the Xbox 720, it seems that this action is very likely to take place.
