Microsoft's forthcoming Xbox One gaming console will be able to play used games, clearing up a worry among gamers and video game retailers.

That means video game discs users buy will not be limited to one Xbox One device, and players can share or trade in the games they have bought for other used games, just as they have been able to do in the past.

The Xbox One, which goes on sale later this year, will need to be connected online at least once every 24 hours to work. Some players had been concerned that the console was going to require a constant internet connection.
