Larry Hryb, Xbox Live's director of programming (who goes by the Xbox Live gamertag Major Nelson), may have made a statement on Wednesday that could inspire hope for a gamer-friendly outcome to the Xbox One's Internet connectivity requirement and the supposed fee that gamers would need to pay to play used games. Here's what Hryb said on Twitter:

Hyrb Tweet Larry Hryb, known by his Xbox Live gamer tag Major Nelson and the director of programming for Microsoft gaming network Xbox Live, vaguely addressed the issues facing the Xbox One.  twitter.com/majornelson

Hryb's tweet wasn't exactly informative, but considering that many crucial details like the ones mentioned above remain unresolved, we find this comment somewhat reassuring. At the very least, the discussion isn't over, so there's hope that gamers won't need to shell out extra money to play used games.

What do you think of Hryb's tweet? Do you think Microsoft will reverse course and allow gamers to play used games for free? What issues do you want to see addressed and resolved? Sound off in the comments below.
