I probably won't purchase it on principle alone. Always on, no used games bothers me especially since the games will still cost $60 a pop. --- Systems Owned - 2600, 5200, NES, NES2, Gameboy, SNES, Virtual Boy, Gameboy Color, N64, Dreamcast, Gamecube, GBA, DS, DSLite, GBM, Wii, 360, 3DS, Wii U

If those two things were to pan out, no used games and online only, there's no f***ing way in hell I'd buy it based on principal alone. Neither of those restrictions would honestly play a part in my ability to game but I would not support it.

No used games sucks and I'm "against it". However, we're going digital, that's inevitable, and along with that will go used games. Steam has some interesting things they're working on and may expand on in the future (like trading gifted games) so I'm hopeful for the future of digital.
The online-only thing though would probably mean no purchase for me. That's just 100% totally unacceptable IMO. --- "You shouldn't be asking HOW things are, given that we already know there is something..but rather WHY things are, as opposed to there being nothing."

If all the rumors are true then no, but they're just rumors I suppose, its sort of hard to believe them lol --- Intell 8088 @ 7.14Mhz | 640K RAM | TCGA 16 Color graphics | TWO 5.25" 640K Floppy drives | 10MB Hard disk 3DS FC: 0903-4184-6816

I wouldn't purchase it, but not only on principle. A system requiring an online connection at all times has little value to me. The inability to buy or sell used games would only decrease its value. --- www.bewaretherobotsquad.com Do you want to read awesomely rad reviews and articles? No? ****.
I have a constant internet connection and I rarely buy used games but I wouldnt be able to support a console that blocks that. I will stick with my 360 and Wii U for gaming. --- Systems Owned - 2600, 5200, NES, NES2, Gameboy, SNES, Virtual Boy, Gameboy Color, N64, Dreamcast, Gamecube, GBA, DS, DSLite, GBM, Wii, 360, 3DS, Wii U
