Microsoft asks if you'd be happy with selling back digital Xbox One games for 10%

Imagine if Microsoft were able to provide the means to sell back those digital copies you have installed on your Xbox One, just like you would a physical disc down at GameStop. That's what a recent survey has asked the community; if they'd be happy if such a feature were made available. Unfortunately, the trade-in price for said digital content is 10% of what you paid at the point of purchase in store credit.

The thought of Microsoft offering the means for consumers to trade-in or sell back digital copies is an interesting idea. There's definitely room for a service to be available for digital games, be it peer-to-peer trading or something of the sorts. It's worth noting that this is just a survey, and does not mean in any way that this is in the pipeline for the Xbox platform. (Especially if the majority of consumers see the sell-back fee as too insignificant.)

What are your thoughts on this? Let us know in the comments if you'd be happy with selling back your digital games back to Microsoft.
