If you have been following the rumors on the next-generation consoles, you should know both Sony and Microsoft are (supposedly) going to block used games from playing. While the technology is still unknown as to how exactly the used games will be blocked, both companies could include it. Crytek's director of creative development Rasmus Hoejengard would love to see an anti-used game implentation in the next-gen consoles and calls the idea "awesome" from a business perspective. He says no other software industry has used sales and would be happy if Sony and Microsoft block it. However, despite his desire to see used games blocked, Hoejengard hopes the next consoles offer easy design options for games. He would not like something overly complex, but rather something that allows for prototypes to be up and running swiftly. Good scalability available for everyone would also be nice, since then all games could acheive a desired graphical quality.
