Microsoft has finally shed some light with regards to the controversial Xbox One game reselling topic. According to the software giant, as far as games published by Microsoft are concerned, Xbox One players will be able to resell their games through the authorized resellers at no additional charge. However, that apparently won’t apply to other publishers, who will be able to opt-out of the game-reselling program, or choose to participate, but with their own set of terms with the resellers (read: with an additional transfer fee).

In other words, you’ll be able to “freely” resell certain games (if through “participating retailers” can be called “freely”), but others – you may not. It seems things will vary depending on the publisher. If you allow us a small comment here, we’d say that this situation would be pure madness, and customers will probably the only ones who’ll suffer from these new Microsoftish policies. Thank you.
