If you going to transfer the right to a different account is will probably be somewhere between $5-15 most likely.
MS stated there would be two different methods for used games. We already know that Gamestop and others will lose out on their profit margins, but we have vary little detail about user to user what MS stated has different rules.
According to a lot of what I have been reading, it can be anywhere from 1 cent to 53 dollars.
Lets do 15 dollars. Microsoft charges 15 dollars, the game company has to turn profit or get out of market, so they charge 20 dollars, and 35 dollars, for a 50 dollar game? Then you have to pay the customer what? 10 dollars? That is 45 dollars for a 50 dollar game. Who wants that mess?
If Microsoft charges 5 dollars, which is extremely unlikely, it will cost more the 5 dollars a game for tech support. Then we have 5 dollars for microsoft, 20 dollars for retail, 10 dollars for customer? That is still 35 dollars for a 50 dollar game.
And that is assuming that everyone is making profit out of it. For me? 10 dollars is not worth the 5 dollars in gas to go to local game store.
The retail store will not want to part with that profit. At some point, the retail store will simply not sell the used game. Which is the WHOLE POINT. Right now, looking online, I see bioshock game for 37.99 used 39.99 new. There is simply not enough room in that margin for microsoft to lay claim to any more profit.
I am assuming that the bioshock was bought from the customer at 25ish dollars.
Sorry, I never own a console, never bought a used game, and never will. But it seems to me, you can not claim you where not destroying something by parking a bulldozer on top of it.
