Microsoft may soon allow you to “sell back” digital Xbox One games

A recent online survey by Microsoft is asking players whether they would like to “sell-back” digital games for store credit.

First spotted on NeoGAF, the survey asks Xbox One owners if they would be willing to sell back games for a fraction of the retail price.

Microsoft will potentially offer just 10 percent of the original price, so for a £50 title, you would receive £5 store credit to spend online.

It’s not much, but better than nothing if the game sits unplayed in your library for months.

Physical trade-ins would still pay significantly more, with retailers such as GAME and CEX specialising in the sale of pre-owned titles.

Keep in mind that this is just a survey, and the “sell-back” programme may never be introduced.
