Well, one of the biggest in the world, Ubisoft, has no idea. Or at least isn't publicly talking.

Speaking with GameSpot, Ubisoft CEO Yves Guillemot was asked whether his company would be allowing the sale of used games on the Xbox One, to which he replied "We haven't decided yet."

The Xbox One is out in November. It's already the middle of June. Guys like Guillemot must have known about this for months. Anything short of a definitive "no" is a pretty strange answer.

The population that buys the Xbox One is making a clear statement that they've come to grips with the new paradigm. Ubisoft won't lose much business by following that pattern and restricting used games on that console.
