As if one wasn't all still a little sore from the OS catastrophe that was Windows Vista, and now Microsoft could be plunging the consumer knife in once more by essentially rendering the secondhand console games market useless.

The information to hand indicates the new generation of Xbox gaming could require users to be permanently connected to the internet, using online verification to log on and access games each time they play. Edge magazine published gaming industry chatter that points to the new Microsoft gaming experience "will be absolutely committed to online functionality"

According to our little Money4Machines spies, gamers will probably buy new games online and be required to activate them via their own Xbox console and Xbox Live account. In layman's terms, the game would be tied to the console and render the secondhand gaming market mute.

Gadget Company Money4Machines are not big fans of things that stomp all over the secondhand gadgets and games markets. Heaps of their customers sell consoles to upgrade to the newest console. But a potentially pleasant upside, as pointed out by one of their office gamers, could be that games fall significantly in price. When the game is cheap to buy new in online-only form, developers could make their money from advertising and in-game purchases instead.

It is true that the gaming consoles are changing their authentication processes and it is most likely that the console should be connected to the internet all the time to play the games without hindrance. PlayStation has already implemented this system.
