Microsoft and Sony?s used game policies for the Xbox One and PlayStation 4 remain unclear. Both companies have confirmed that their respective consoles can play used games, however they would not go into further detail. An earlier rumor suggested that Sony would incorporate some form of digital rights management (DRM) for pre-owned games, while a second report claimed that Microsoft would only allow select retailers to resell games. Gamers are becoming increasingly frustrated with both companies for not addressing the issue at hand. PlayStation enthusiasts recently set up a social media campaign to voice their concerns, and while the movement received widespread media coverage and attention from Sony executives, no questions were answered. The gamers, who originated from popular gaming

NEW YORK (AP) ? Microsoft and Sony offered new details this week on the game consoles they will start selling before the holiday shopping season.

Nintendo (NTDOY) now faces the very real prospect of having an absolute flop on its hands. As Microsoft (MSFT) moved an estimated 281,000 Xbox 360 consoles in the U.S. in January to take the top spot for the 25th consecutive month, Gamasutra reports that Nintendo sold ?well under? 100,000 Wii U consoles last month. The site estimates that sales may have fallen between 45,000 and 59,000 units in January, which could mark the worst month for a Nintendo console since before the original Wii launched. This is not the first sign of trouble for Nintendo?s Wii U. The new console has not been well received in the U.S., U.K. or even in Japan, and Nintendo recently lowered its first-quarter outlook as

Not to be outdone by Sony, Xbox Corporate Vice President Marc Whitten confirmed on Friday that the Xbox One will be able to remotely download games purchased through smartphones and other devices on the Xbox mobile companion app, just like the PlayStation 4. Earlier this month Microsoft also made moves to allow indie developers more freedom to develop for their home console, something Sony has been touting since announcement the PS4. As we approach the launch dates for the new consoles, their feature lists are closer than ever, especially after Microsoft was pressured to backtrack on some initial announcements that the gaming community found objectionable. Microsoft?s Xbox One will cost $499.99 and its release date is still unknown.

In the next few days, Microsoft is expected to announce their next generation console, dubbed the ?XBOX 720? at this year?s GDC (Game Developer Conference). This is right on the heels of Sony?s recent PS4 announcement and lackluster sales announcements for Nintendo?s Wii U. These new game consoles will sell, but just not as well as they once did. Gaming and the gaming industry has changed since 2005 when the PS3 and the XBOX 360 were first announced, and those changes will impact how well the new consoles sell in the future. I want to delve into a few of these variables, starting with mobility. Mobile Gaming Impact

The Xbox 360 topped the charts again in April, marking the 28th consecutive month Microsoft?s gaming console has outsold Sony?s PlayStation 3 and Nintendo?s Wii consoles. According to research from NPD Group, the Xbox 360 accounted for 42% of current-generation sales with 130,000 units sold last month. It wasn?t all good news, however, as sales plummeted 50% from 261,000 units in March. As a whole, the industry continued to struggle in April with total gaming sales down 25% year-over-year from $657.5 million to $495.2 million. Microsoft and Sony?s next-generation consoles are expected to help sales pick up when they launch ahead of the holidays this year.

The long-running distinction between dedicated game consoles and gaming PCs is disappearing with Valve's announcement of its own operating system, SteamOS. The hardware is changing too, with next-gen consoles from Microsoft and Sony offering much more than the ability to play disc-based games, not to mention both being built on PC architecture (x86). And PC gaming has never been more friendly in the living room, between Steam's Big Picture Mode and solid gamepad support for many games.
