Microsoft says used games will work on Xbox One

Posted:
NEW YORK (AP) -

Microsoft says its upcoming Xbox One gaming console will be able to play used games, clearing up a worry among gamers and video game retailers such as GameStop, which trade in used games.

That means video games discs users buy will not be limited to one Xbox One device, and players can share or trade in the games they have bought for other used games, just as they have been able to do in the past.

Microsoft Corp. said in a blog post Thursday it will not charge a fee to retailers, publishers or gamers for transferring their old games.

Separately, Microsoft says the Xbox One, which goes on sale later this year ahead, will need to be connected online at least once every 24 hours to work.
