Personally I've never understood people who buy used to save a measly $5 in the first place. Saving $5 is that important that you'd rather have a potentially scratched up version of the game?


ITP: We assume everyone buys from Gamestop.


I don't assume that EVERYONE does. But lots of people do, and I don't understand those people.

It's bending over to companies for no good reason. No one with a working brain should say, "Please sir, take away more rights from me"


So the devs don't deserve money for making the game?


You're going to argue with someone who thinks rights play a part in this?

for all I care, if that warrants that the game prices drop, I'm fine with it, but they don't so it's annoying.

what makes games so special that they are entitled to a fee for used games? I can sell books, movies, CDs etc without dealing with that crap.
Heck, movies even come for free to TV eventually and you can hear songs for free on the radio and internet and yet they don't have to urge to cheat you out of your money.

It's annoying having to redeem them when I buy a game new. The only used game I have bought in forever is Saints Row 3, and somehow that still had a valid online code...lucky.

lol. Rights? What rights? What country do you live in whose constitution outlines "Thou shalt not require a 16-digit code to be input in order for consumers to access online content."?


^^This is why most TC aren't taking seriously, they want to ask a question, than laugh at peoples responses they disagree with. Learn about respecting peoples Opinions, or don't make Stupid topics that been do over a billion times.

It eliminates people's ability to buy used games. It's not rocket science.

No it doesn't. You can still buy used.
