Edge Reports on New Xbox: No Used Games, Internet Required

Edge is reporting new details on the next Xbox system. The biggest news about the new console: internet is required to play with the system and used games will be blocked.

Games will be purchased with one-time-use activation codes, meaning the sole person who uses the code first is the only person who can play the game on their console. 

While the console’s experience now fully lies with internet compatibility, physical games will still be available. Games will now be on blu-ray format for the next Microsoft console, meaning 50 gigs of space for games now.

The console holds AMD eight-core x64 1.6GHz CPU, a D3D11.x 800MHz graphics solution and 8GB of DDR3 RAM. The console will also ship with a newer version of the Kinect.
