11:08 EDTSNE, MSFT, GMEGameStop falls after report says next Xbox may block used games
Shares of video game retailer GameStop (GME) are lower following a report that suggests the next version of Microsoft's (MSFT) Xbox video game system may include technology that will prohibit the resale of used game discs. The upcoming iteration of the Xbox will use activation codes in conjunction with physical discs, "ruling out a second-hand game market for the platform," according to a report from the video game blog Edge-Online. Note that on January 3 tech blogs reported that Sony (SNE) patents suggest the company may eliminate the ability to play pre-owned games on its upcoming PS4 system and weakness in GameStop shares, which were down about 5% that day, was attributed to those reports. In morning trading today, GameStop is down $2.08, or 7.76%, to $24.73.
