    Yet Major Nelson as well as Phil Harrison (President of Microsoft) said that you will have to pay a fee if you borrow a game from a friend.

    I've seen both on-line so far. It looks like there is still a little confusion going on.

    Maybe the heat that they got after the fee crap was said. All I know if they do charge I'll have to pass on the system. I love gaming butI hate the idea that the consumer is punished for buying used.

The aforementioned 'fee' to play games on a second account? Full MSRP. So if you want to play your game on another system, you'll be dishing out an extra $40, $50, $60 - unless you're logged into your main account. (Parental controls will allow you to grant access to other accounts on the same hardware.) Harrison did tell Kotaku that his company plans to allow gamers to 'trade' their used games online somehow - though declined to get into further details.</span>

    So much for always online rumours. May be i will consider buying it if there is a package not involving kinect 2.0 , which needs a lot of development and good game titles.

    there will not be a bundle "not involving kinect 2.0" as the machine needs kinect to be plugged in otherwise you cant use it.

    well from what I have heard you will be issued with a activation code for your game, when you have finished and want to trade it in you will have to unlink that code from your account !!!! now what is unsure is if you will be charged a fee for doing this maybe £1- £2.

    As major nelson said " no policies have been finalised as of yet"

    heres a little funny and reactions from the revealing <a href="http://i.minus.com/iBzvb2JSpQNRM.gif">http://i.minus.com/iBzvb2JSpQNRM.gif</a>

    <p style="color:rgb(207,207,207);font-family:'Trebuchet MS';font-size:11px;"><a href="http://www.wired.com/gamelife/2013/05/xbox-one-analysis/">ED</a><span style="color:rgb(34,34,34);font-family:'Helvetica Neue', Arial, Verdana, sans-serif;font-size:14px;">Microsoft has confirmed that all Xbox One games will require mandatory installation onto the system's hard drive and, to install the same disc onto another user's drive, a fee must be paid.</span>
    <div></div>
    <div>Individual games will be tied to Xbox Live accounts, Microsoft said, meaning that the software giant can detect whether a game has been sold to a retailer and repurchased, or handed from one friend to another. In such instances, the second user must pay a fee.</div>
    <div></div>
    <div>"On the new Xbox, all game discs are installed to the HDD to play," a Microsoft representative told Wired.</div>
    <div></div>
    <div>The company added that, once discs are installed on the hard drive, games can be played without a disc being in the tray.</div>
    <div></div>
    <div>The Wired article then elaborates: "What follows naturally from this is that each disc would have to be tied to a unique Xbox Live account, else you could take a single disc and pass it between everyone you know and copy the game over and over. Since this is clearly not going to happen, each disc must then only install for a single owner."</div>
    <div></div>
    <div>It added: "Microsoft did say that if a disc was used with a second account, that owner would be given the option to pay a fee and install the game from the disc, which would then mean that the new account would also own the game and could play it without the disc."</div>
    <div></div>
    <div>Microsoft did not disclose what the second-user fee would amount too, and did not clarify further on the matter.</div>
    <div></div>
    <div>The article claims that there is no sweeping 'always-online' requirement for future Xbox One games.</div>
