Xbox survey hints at digital trade-in plans

Microsoft is flirting with the idea of a digital trade-in scheme that would let Xbox owners "sell back" their digital purchases for a slice of store credit. 

Microsoft is flirting with the idea of a digital trade-in scheme that would let Xbox owners "sell back" their digital purchases for a slice of store credit. 

As spotted on NeoGAF, a recent Xbox customer survey asked if console owners would be interested in trading in digital games for 10 percent of the purchase price. 

So, if you picked up a digital release for $60, you'd get $6 back in store credit to put towards another purchase. 

Although users on NeoGAF seem receptive to the idea in general, most admit they're put off by that 10 percent figure.

Other questions in the same survey asked participants what they dislike most about digital titles, and how often they share their games with others, further implying Microsoft is interested in making its online store a more appealing proposition.
