Neogaffer CBOAT, widely believed to be a Microsoft insider (and whose information is usually later confirmed), has posted that plans for the Xbox One’s digital sales features, though still undergoing finalization, will likely include the ability to resell used digital games online. Translation here.
According to the post, Microsoft is collecting information, survey-style, to assist it in determining how the Xbox One’s digital market will work. Among the suggestions in the survey is a discussion of an online used game market that may incorporate some of the following:
- You will have the ability to purchase and sell pre-owned digital video games.
- You will have the ability to sell back/trade in your versions of digital games you have purchased.
- You will have the ability to buy pre-owned digital versions of games through the online marketplace.
- You will have a variety of prices and features available to purchase for pre-owned digital versions of games.
Whether any or all of these features ultimately wind up being part of the Xbox One, it’s encouraging that Microsoft is apparently considering them and taking feedback into consideration.
