What's up with the XBox One restrictions?

Episode 987 (1:35:51)

Wyatt from Kings Mountain, NC

Wyatt is a gamer, a huge XBox fan, and he's pretty upset with the new draconian used game policy that the XBox One will have. He believes it'll cause faithful fans like him go to Playstation which has no such restrictions. Leo says it's ridiculous and amounts to Microsoft and game publishers trying to get as much money as possible out of their fans. Microsoft is gambling it won't matter with the majority of those who buy it, and they may be right. Especially when the Playstation 4 is $100 less (of course, it doesn't come with a Kinect-like feature either). Also, optical media is going away. There's really no need to place this restriction on gamers when the market is moving towards online purchasing and downloading of games.
