So I have been thinking about Jeffs idea of a "physical object" being included in games to help with resale and piracy. This is what I've been thinking. What if the new consoles had some kind of NFC built into the box itself and games came simply with a small card. Each console would come with a folder of sorts with slots for the cards so that they would be easy to store without loss. Upon opening the game you would simply pull out the card and place it in the folder which is kept on top of the console. When you started the game it would link your user name to the card which in turn would grant you the license for the game. The cards would be single user so that if the game disc was sold it would require the new owner to purchase a new card to play the full game (the disc itself would allow a trial version of the game to be played), which would allow publishers to make money on used games. Cards could be customized for each game and save game data could be held on them as well so that if I wanted to take my save game to another xbox I would just place my folder near my buddies XBox and my save game would become available. With no save game data held on the hard disk itself it would free up more memory on the console. Not to mention you wouldn't need a display case to hold a bunch figures, just a simple folder.
