"GameStop welcomes today's announcement from Microsoft about changes in functionality for its next-generation console, the Xbox One. This is great news for gamers and we applaud Microsoft for understanding consumers and the importance of the pre-owned market," spoke the chain in a statement.
Videogame rental services which would have been more affected by the Xbox One were even more ecstatic. Gamefly's co-founder Sean Spector pronounced, "Today is a win/win for consumers, as well as GameFly. I think choice is always important and now consumers have more choice. And I give (Microsoft) credit for listening to their consumers."
The Xbox One is expected to launch late 2013.
