Xbox rumors

More rumors are flying around about the next-generation Xbox game console from Microsoft. A couple of these rumors are pretty cool, but one of them really sucks. The bad news first, the rumors claims that Microsoft will implement some sort of tech that will block the play of used games.

Not only will that hurt the stores like Gamestop that sell used games, but gamers on a budget that want to save some money and buy used will be foiled too. I wonder if the system would allow you to play games that you borrow from a friend or rent. The rumors also point to Microsoft finally going Blu-ray, which is no surprise.

The final rumor is that the console will also launched with a new Kinect 2 sensor. That is also no big surprise. Kinect has been huge for Microsoft and the next generation is certainly in the worlds already. We still don't know when the next Xbox might go official, previous rumors have claimed that we won't hear more this year.
