Sony (SNE) on Watch as Microsoft (MSFT) Revamps Xbox One Reselling, Sharing Rules

Sony (NYSE: SNE) shares are on watch Wednesday as Microsoft (Nasdaq: MSFT) announced changes to its policy for the Xbox One used game policy.

Microsoft was largely criticized following the launch of Xbox One at E3 for not allowing users to share, lend, resell, or even look at their games the wrong way. However, consumer outcry has finally hit the video game giant, causing a change in sentiment.

In late trading, Sony is up modestly.
