The other day an Xbox survey was discovered that made reference to the idea of selling back digital copies of games for 10% in store credit, sparking many discussions about whether or not such a feature was coming to Microsoft’s consoles. But it looks like that’s not the case at all. In response to a tweet by Michael Pachter about Microsoft “playing with fire” by even suggesting such an idea, Head of Xbox Marketing Aaron Greenberg tweeted that they “not actively planning such a thing,” and that he was “surprised it was even asked in a survey.” Sorry folks, but it sounds like digital resale is still just a pipe dream.
@michaelpachter Yeah we are not actively planning such a thing, surprised it was even asked in a survey. Not fire being played with 🙂
