    poorly worded on my part...I meant how soon (if ever) do we expect to see a system like this for all Xbox titles...for example, you buy Fallout 4 and you're required to associate it with an Xbox Live account, you can then de-associate it and sell it, but the used copy has a similar activiation fee attached to it for the new owner...

    while I personally think this would be extremely unlikely, remember that publishers view the secondary market with almost as much vitriol as they view those who pirate/steal the games...

    and remember, MS is no stranger to tying OSs/games/whatever to accounts and/or actual hardware setups.

    Here's a better question, why wouldn't Microsoft implement a system like this?

    The real kicker is if they START doing that on titles you've previously bought... like several years ago. Some update comes down the pipe and you're suddenly required to associate all your games in order to play.

    BC2 is going to have free DLC for the original owner. But it will have to be bought by anyone that buys the game used. Kind of an interesting way to get money from the used market.

    i call it a cheap shot. since the one who sells it isnt going to be using the game anymore so do you neeed to buy the online ability agiant if the original owner cant?

    Sony maintains the servers to play on, and it is a service that they offer. They don't have to offer it at all. I don't see it as a problem recharging people for buying used games.
