Report: Microsoft Won't Charge A Used Game Fee On The Xbox One

There's been some fuss about how used games work on the Xbox One — do we have to pay a fee to Microsoft to play them? Is Microsoft killing used games dead? Supposedly, no. Polygon is reporting that the Xbox One will NOT require gamers to pay a fee to reactivate an Xbox One used game.

However, Polygon notes, there will still be "a regular online spot check" to verify the authenticity of the used game being played. Which is like basically requiring users to always have their Xbox One connected to the Internet (another big issue with gamers).

Apparently things are still in flux at Microsoft about used games and an always on Internet connection, but Polygon says Microsoft plans to address user's concerns before E3 this year. They should, cause it's only getting more confusing. [Polygon]
