Screenshot leaks for the next-gen Xbox's (MSFT) development kit indicate games will have to be installed onto the console's hard drive, and that the console will constantly be connected to the Web. This backs up a prior report indicating the next Xbox will prevent used games from being played. The Verge points out the screenshots are from 2012, and that Microsoft may have decided to support used games in the interim - with the PlayStation 4 supporting them, that's arguably the safe move. GameStop (GME +0.9%) shares don't seem affected by the report.
