One way to cut down used game sales for Publishers

Is of course to make your games have enough replay value that people don't trade it in. Guess they never thought of that one. I don't see a giant outrage from new car makers that require me to pay a fee to use the air conditioner on my preowned car.

Fine. Books, textbooks, movies. Any kind of intellectual property that you can buy used with no fee from the original maker.

So what you're saying is you're unfamiliar with license agreements.

What he's saying is license agreements have always been a way for greedy companies to remove the rule of first sale for a long time and they're pushing it way too far now.

I am not an early adopter. If your system is as awesome as you say it is, it will still be in stores when the games I want are out.

Get rid of license agreements. Make them illegal. Companies had their shot not to abuse them. They failed.
