Phil Harrison:

Here's how the system works: when you buy an Xbox One game, you'll get a unique code that you enter when you install that game. You'll have to connect to the Internet in order to authorize that code, and the code can only be used once. Once you use it, that game will then be linked to your Xbox Live account. "It sits on your harddrive and you have permission to play that game as long as you’d like," Harrison said.

Can't even streamline the damn process and read the code off the disc? Though I guess it'd be easier to fix a bad paper code than a bad disc code.

It'd be funny if that extra step is what actually kills the Xbox for mainstream though.

Well, you presumably/hopefully get one (the ability to freely redownload your game), but none of the rest, and even then that set up was because the PC was absurdly easy to crack software on so SOMETHING had to be done, here it's just plain old greed on a system that should be secure.

He'll at least have to connect it when he gets a new game, it seems.

If you're not going to make up with your DRM to me by at least offering me convenience and great prices like Steam, you can fuck right off with it.

Nice knowing you, Xbox Brand. Enjoy your irrelevance.

"Let’s assume it’s a new game, so the answer is yes, it will be the same price," Harrison said.

But that doesn't mean used games are dead. In fact, Harrison told us, you'll be able to sell your Xbox One games online.

"We will have a solution—we’re not talking about it today—for you to be able to trade your previously-played games online," Harrison said
.

still can get used games, they are just making their own market
