If Sony says they won't, then Microsoft can't block used games. It would be an insta-loss, Sony wins, the end. I wouldn't worry about it.

Sony hasn't said they won't either. That answer they gave a few days ago was evasive as hell. They may not, but it doesn't mean they won't allow the publishers to do it. And it doesn't mean they won't watermark games in some manner either.

If MS is dumb enough to do this than it's over before it began. And it probably is for a lot of people anyway given the online and Kinect being required. I know that alone would prohibit a purchase from me automatically.

I'm sure it will be a joint decsions. MS and Sony will collude on this, b/c there aren't any other players in the console market. It's a duopoly essentially, and that's why you get this kind of anticompetitive practice.
