anyone remember the PSP GO? lol it was sonys try at download only to try and lockout resells.

We see how well that worked out for them.


As far as steam and pc games go, PC gaming is a shell of what it once was because of nasty DRMs pirates and not having a used market or abilty to sell of what you dont like.


If sony was to block resells, think of this, how many buying used would run out and buy new? or how many who buy new knowing they can sell it if they dont like it will still buy?

Or people on a tight budget that can piggyback on trade ins for new stuff they otherwise might not be able to afford >.>
