Used Games on “Xbox 720” a good thing says developer

by | @AttackFanboy | on February 8, 2012

A hot topic surrounding the next generation of console is used games. When a rumor suggested that Microsoft would eliminate them completely in their next console, gamers and developers alike have been airing out there thought. The latest to vent is CD Projeckt Red’s Adam Badowski. Badowski believes that if Microsoft were to eliminate used games from their next generation console, it would be “a bad thing”.

“It can be a bad thing,” Badowski told Eurogamer. “We are losing money not because of pirates; we are losing money because people decided not to buy our game. We should invest more power to upgrade and polish our products and convince players to keep our products, to be with us, to understand our needs – because we are an independent developer, we have to prevent lay-offs, we need to grow up and have the power to create new games,” Badowski told the site.

CD Projekt Red’s Michał Platkow-Gilewski also stressed the importance of relationships, claiming a feature like this would be damaging.

“We want to do as much as possible for our players, our gamers. We don’t want to force anyone. It’s like we did with DRM-free: we give them freedom and we believe they will stay with us.”

Where do you stand on used games? Good thing? Bad thing? How would your habits change if this happened next generation? Let us know in the comments section below.
