Does this mean they now have the full game at a cheaper price and if so whats to stop people from splitting the cost of the game and then loading it onto two Xboxes. They did say that once it is installed you wouldn't need the disc anymore to play.
Which says to me that the "fee" could very well be the full cost of the game, or near enough that they make roughly the same profit.

Why would they make the "fee" substantially less than the full cost? They WANT to kill all reselling of games. This obviously will kill rentals, since rentals are made functionally the same as purchasing the game.
