Now that Sony has patented new tech to stop used games on consoles everyone seems to be complaining. But the thing is that its been that way for PC games for ages. You can't resell or trade in a PC game. Nobody really complains about this.

I see people say some dumb stuff like how they are going to buy a Steam Box or go PC only next gen. instead of PS4 Well guess what if you bought a Steam Box or go PC only you won't have your used games either.

The reason why you can't sell back used PC games is because you can install them and that's it. stupid topic.
A big time Samus fan and Metroid fan |I'm probably the biggest Samus fan you'll ever meet.

I'm going to PC-only because it's much, much cheaper than console gaming, and I won't be tethered down to a single distributor. Don't like how Steam operates? Go to Origin, GreenManGaming, or some of the other services. Don't like PSN? Shut your damn mouth or get a brand new console.

I refuse to buy used games or resell the ones that I have and actually side with the publishers over the online passes, for the PS3 at leasst, so those points are nonexistent with me.

PC games are cheaper, and will be forward compatible as well. Not a fair comparison.

Hopefully a joke. There is no entitlement here. Gamers are erring on the side of truth when they say that nixxing used games will not do any good to anyone.

Calling the PC "proof" that no-used is fine if you want to ignore the moonwalking bear.
