The ONLY information we have from Microsoft clearly indicates that used games WILL need to be re-purchased at full price, and not just for each account but for EVERY XB1 that you wish to play on. Please stop propagating disinformation.

There is no clear information, but they have denied that it will be the full amount. And I believe that only 1 account needs the full game to work on the x1 being used, the "every account" sounds nuts... even for MS.

This just goes to prove if you can latch on to any idea that's either pointless, inane, or flat out stupid, then do it to its ultimate extreme, you too can join the "elite" in the "Guiness Book of World Records". At close to 50,000 pounds, a real one could probably be built to weigh less.

Although, its weight and massively underpowered problems notwithstanding, I suppose you could roll the 'ol Imperial Star destroyer over to ninety degrees, and just let it fall out of the launch tube.*nerd*

This just in:
Having solved all of the state's other problems, the Ohio legislature has passed a bill outlawing that most foul of societal ills: the internet café.
Of course there was dissent:
"Today it is my privilege to give the eulogy for the 6,000 to 8,000 people that will be put out of work by the adoption of this measure," Seitz said upon House Bill 7's passage.
What I'm even more concerned about, is the number of FBI agents posing a 13 year old girls in internet chat rooms, that this bill will put out of work...:D
