    Publishers Remain Quit On Xbox One Pre-Owned Fees.

    The global publishing network that drives the majority of revenues for the games industry has kept quiet on whether it will implement pre-owned fees on the Xbox One.

    Microsoft clarified on Thursday that it would not impose a mandatory fee on those who swap, share or trade their Xbox One games. However, it clarified that third-party publishers were free to implement policies that could discourage people from trading their games.

    On Friday, CVG contacted public relations bosses at the biggest games publishers in the world, to ask what plans they might have. The response, at the time of going to press, has been;



    Bethesda: ""We haven't had time to fully understand and evaluate their policy" (via GameSpot)
    Activision: Declined to comment
    Ubisoft: Declined to comment
    Capcom: Declined to comment
    Take-Two: Declined to comment
    Namco Bandai: Declined to comment (via MCV)
    Electronic Arts: Seeking response
    Sega: Seeking response
    Square Enix: No reply yet
    Konami: No reply yet

    The lack of clarification may not necessarily suggest that publishers will favour pre-owned fees, but it does imply that no publisher is currently willing to outright oppose the policy.

    There is still a possibility that pre-owned charges are opposed by certain publishing firms, but this has yet to be communicated. The difficulties in balancing workloads in the run-up to E3 also means that comment may arrive slower than usual.

    Microsoft triggered public outrage in May when it said it would charge people who installed pre-owned games on the Xbox One.



    The move comes after several years of debate on whether pre-owned games harm or help the business. Impassioned views from both developers and gamers have often led to vehement disputes between both sides.

    Sony has yet to clarify whether it will allow publishers to implement pre-owned fees on the PS4.

    It benefits them if we are forced to buy new video games and/or forced to pay for used games. But it could also hurt them just like its gonna hurt M$ if they keep on this policy.

    Xbox One Pre-Owned Fees is not the only problem.

    No matter what M$ will do, we (gamers) have to help them realize they (M$) are all a bunch of idiots.

    Re: Publishers Remain Quit On Xbox One Pre-Owned Fees.

    I've seen more complexity in a couch from IKEA than in the Xbox One.

    Seriously though, Microsoft have been shooting themselves in the foot way too often lately and it's probably going to get worse.

    Victory costs. Every time, you pay a little more.
