Xbox 720 has been talked about being the system that will ban used-gaming, but a new source has claimed it will not be featuring such tech.
According to a report from GamingCapacity on Monday, a new source has been quoted and this one says the Xbox 720 will not be blocking used-games.
This has been highly talked about over the past few months, and really, it's hard to think Microsoft would do this because it would nearly crush any chances of competing with Sony's PS4.
Sony's system, as far as we know, will not be blocking used-games. That feature has been talked about, but it is good it doesn't seem to be happening.
The source said the feature has never been planned or considered to be placed in the Xbox 720, so gamers can stop worrying about that.
While the elimination of used-gaming would adversely impact a lot of businesses and lives, it is still something that developers do not like, even though gamers do.
Microsoft and Sony are caught in between developers and gamers on this topic, and they don't seem to be the ones who want to make that choice.
Used-gaming is such a great part of the industry, from a consumer perspective, because it affordably allows gamers to try out games they would never normally purchase for $60, and eventually discover new franchises.
While developers may not like used-gaming it is just another avenue people can take to discover new content and games. Why would they want to shut that off? Money is the answer, so it'll be interesting to see what ultimately happens.
