    Isn&1quo;t it kind of ironic that the only companies that have made statements like this are GameStop & GameFly. The companies who revenue ru1 off Used Games. If they really cared about co1ume1 don&1quo;t you think they would give you more for your trade. Or not try to rip you off with a $60 game you bought from them 1hr ago you didn&1quo;t like and now they will only give you $30. I see a lot of caring for your co1ume1 in that practice. The world needs to embrace the digital age. You might not like it but you will be forced to accept it. You did it with FaceBook, Gmail, I1tagram, Flikr, Google+, Skype etc. Time to move forward people. Microsoft was trying to be ahead of the pack and scared game1 ruined it. Great job!
