Finally, someone explains why the used games ecosystem is bad all-around for the industry, and why companies like Sony and Microsoft are trying to abolish it NOT because they are anti-consumer, but because they want to protect their only avenue of income (from direct sales).
As TotalBiscuit mentioned, used games don’t really affect the PC platform. But I have been a PS3 gamer since 2009, and I always buy my console games brand new. It’s a very simple principle that I have supported for years, but couldn’t quite find the words to explain it at length in writing. TotalBiscuit explains it all in 28 minutes. For anyone who has ever complained that videogames are too expensive, or supports the used games market, please watch this video.
