I understand where they're coming from.

A game can get re-sold many times.....and they don't profit from that at all.

But on the other hand, if consoles really want me to buy digitally they should have the common decency to not charge me the same as a retail copy.

I was excited about Wii U's "Deluxe Digital Promotion" thing....till I quickly realized all the games are $60.

When I can just wait for a sale @ Target, Amazon, Best Buy, TRU and get the same retail copy for $10-15 cheaper???

The nerve of these ppl. They're cutting out the middle man (manufacturers, cost of plastic, cost of inserts, distributors). Yet we are still paying full price? The profits on digital games must be enormous

I was about to post a topic concerning this.

Won't that kill Gamestop, especially Gamefly?

If this goes through, I can see a lot of gamers upset with Sony and Microsoft.

Nintendo first party games get about $35-40 profit for retail sales (taking out costs to stamp and ship each disk) For online sales they get the full price tag.

I can see MS doing it because they got sick of people pirating their PC software they already have a similar system in place for PC activations with keys. There was a lot of pirating on 360 since hackers actually took the time to hack the firmware to play burned games.

It needs to be done for the sake of the industry

So many places offer used games, Amazon, Best Buy, GameStop, Blockbuster, Gamefly, Red Box rentals, etc.

Dat backlash.
