The retailer's share price reached a low of $23.83 per share today, dropping from a $26.81 closing price the day before.
Copyright: Warner Bros. LucasArtsThe drop seems to have turned around, with the share price rising back up to $25.20 at the time of writing. However, that is still a 6.01% decrease from yesterday.
Earlier today, rumours began circulating that Xbox Live will become an integral part of the next Xbox's functionality, and that games, which will ship on 50GB-capacity Blu-ray discs, will come with a one-time activation code.
Such a system would not necessarily lock out used game sales entirely, with the possibility that Microsoft could work out a deal with retailers to sell additional activation codes similar to how retailers currently sell season pass DLC codes that are included in many new games.
However, selling an activation code with a game would mean a higher price for the used games, and could make second-hand sales an unattractive business plan.
Of course, since this is all still unconfirmed, the entire scenario is hypothetical at this point.
The new Xbox has reportedly entered beta, with a shipment of brand new prototype kits having made their way to developers.
It has been claimed that the Xbox 720 will launch during the 2013 holiday season and feature Kinect 2.0. It will reportedly launch alongside Project Gotham Racing 5, which is said to be in development at Liverpool studio Lucid Games.
