Report: Next Xbox Requires Internet, Blocks Used Games

A new Edge report suggests that Microsoft’s next Xbox gaming console, code-named Durango, will require an internet connection to use. It also won’t be able to play used games, Edge says.

We have not been able to confirm the veracity of this new report, which claims that Durango will ship with a new Kinect and hold an AMD eight-core CPU that runs at 1.6GHz and 8GB of DDR3 RAM. Edge also says Durango discs will come with one-time-use activation codes that render them useless to anyone but the person who first uses them.

Early last year, Kotaku reported that the next Xbox will use Blu-ray discs, ship with Kinect 2.0, and contain some sort of anti-used game protection.
