Microsoft (MSFT) won't charge a fee for Xbox One used game sales to "retailers, publishers, or consumers," the company states in a blog post. GameStop (GME) investors are relieved, shares +5% AH. Other details: 1) With games/data stored in the cloud, users will be able to access owned games on friends' consoles by logging in. 2) Users are required to be online once every 24 hours on their home console, and once an hour on a friend's console, to verify usage rights. 3) Games can be shared with up to 10 family members, who can play them on any console (though only one can play from a shared library at a given time).
