ETC So, What Does Reggie Think About The Whole Used Games Debate?

One thing which seperated the XBox One from the PS4 this E3 is how the consoles will deal with pre-owned discs, Not wishing to be letf out Nintendo's own Reggie Fils-Aime spoke to website Polygon and acknowledged the importance of supporting used games and you can see what he thoughtinside.

Reggie also said:

"We have been very clear, we understand that used games are a way for some consumers to monetize their games. They will buy a game, play it, bring it back to their retailer to get credit for their next purchase. Certainly, that impacts games that are annualized and candidly also impacts games that are maybe undifferentiated much more than [it] impacts Nintendo content. Why is that? Because the replayability of our content is super strong. The consumer wants to keep playing Mario Kart. The consumer want to keep playing New Super Mario Bros. They want to keep playing Pikmin. So we see that the trade-in frequency on Nintendo content is much less than the industry average - much, much less. So for us, we have been able to step back and say that we are not taking any technological means to impact trade-in and we are confident that if we build great content, then the consumer will not want to trade in our games."
