Microplay sells all their used games 10$ off of new price.
Your telling me to give them 10$ more money for a shinier box? Or maybe some unused codes for a weapon skin or some crap like that? I will keep my 10$ thank you. Unless i buy 1st week, i will always at least save 10$ on games buying it used.
If I were to pick up some second hand games, the people who made the game will not see one cent from me. Same for anyone else who buys used.
This is the same as "oh, I watched Skyfall on my computer" like it's some kind of a feat in this day and age. Good job, you ripped everyone off who were involved.
Back to games... if you like a game used, rebuy it again brand new, or wait for a sequel (if there is one) and buy THAT new. This is to ensure you're supporting the right people.
Do you realise more people buy from retail than that companys online store. There is a reason for that and developers an publishers should cry, but rather give a motive or incentive to buy from there store over gamespot instead of punishing consumers.

without the used market the game industry would sell vastly less. people fail to understand that a very high portion of the money flows directly back into the game market for other (often new) games. same goes for "trade in". it also ensures that certain people have jobs - e.g. game stop and whatnot.
also, games are nothing special. you give up the privilege to play the game, just as you give up the privilege to listen to a cd or watch a dvd movie when you sell it.
