The Xbox One will not be backwards compatible and will not play used games according to reports circulating the internet.
Wired was the first place to spot this, although others soon followed. It seems like this circulates around the fact that the Xbox One requires all games to be installed onto the system's hard disc before playing. It's also reported that the game is tied to the Xbox Live account that installed it, so the only way to play a used game would be to pay a fee to unlock it.
Mandatory installs, paywall blocked pre-owned and always connected Kinect. What do you think of this news?
