For all of you that think getting rid of used games will help developers/publish

i am here to tell you that you are 100% wrong because even the most popular games that are made and sell millions of copies do INFACT get old and boring after so many playthroughs and people want to sell it on ebay or trade it in to gamestop

all that will happen is if used games are gone and games remain their same price of $60 or god forbid even higher next gen game developers will not make better money because A: customers will see it as less of a value since once they buy it it is theirs and cannot be resold

so they will wait for the game to drop in price in the following months to $39 or even $29 for those that have extra dlc and the really crappy games wont move at all till they $19.99 all because we cant trade in our games anymore .......... publishers will sell less copies of new games becase we know they will not sell them at more reasonable prices and they will be worth far less to us since once we buy them they are stuck with them

the end of used games will hurt game makers because customers are stubborn and if we cant get a return on our investment ...... that investment loses value so we wait for it to get cheap or not get it
