It's a good business decision for MSFT but they are still leaving it up to game manufacturers.

The folks that buy used games are the ones that buy used & refurbished consoles even though it made a big splash in the headlines, that demographic isn't who MSFT is targeting especially since they don't make $$$ in the used market.

There was an article somewhere that stated that MSFT encouraged users to use both, a 360 connected to an XB1.

It's true, the Xbox 360 games, including the Arcade games on the 360 are not compatible with the XBONE. (Yeah, I've adopted XBONE as it's name.) Microsoft instead rolled out a new look for the Xbox 360 and will still sell that along with XBONE. Their reason for this is because the hardware is such a leap in advancement that it won't support the Xbox 360 programs. Which really doesn't wash with me that well.

Is it true that they are making people buy new games for this system? It's not compatible with the current 360?

I think if they keep the 2 two system close in sales the consumer always win. I know that they will bring back the family share to upshow Sony.

It's all a part of this next generation war. I hope they keep trying to out-do each other until the real winners are us - the gamers! Viva la video games!

I'm glad they reversed their decision. We weren't going to get one before, but we probably will now.

So I think the decision was made at the top of microsoft after E3 to drop its polices on used games and always online pinging. What do you think of the decision? Now that this has happend do you think Microsoft has not focus on the future since people were not ready to embrace the model?
