Gamestop, GameFly applaud Xbox One changes
Fans aren’t the only ones happy with Microsoft’s changes with used games and DRM for the Xbox One.
Gamestop, one of the biggest used game dealers out there, told Joystiq that they “applaud” Microsoft in listening to the fans after E3.
“Gamestop welcomes today’s announcement from Microsoft about changes in functionality for its next-generation console, the Xbox One,” Gamestop stated. “This is great news for gamers and we applaud Microsoft for understanding consumers and the importance of the pre-owned market.”
Meanwhile, GameFly co-founder and SVP of business development and content Sean Spector stated that the reversal is a win for both the company and gamers.
“I always felt good about the future of GameFly, but I feel better today,” Spector said. “Today is a win/win for consumers, as well as GameFly. I think choice is always important and now consumers have more choice. And I give [Microsoft] credit for listening to their consumers.”
