That'd be stupid, second hand games aren't even half price. The game's price wouldn't increase but the RRP would so shops could sell at an affordable rate with the loss of the second hand market. --- If your shop is getting shot by an arrow trap, sometimes you are going to get an arrow in the knee.

That's how they sold everyone on No Fault Auto Insurance being required by Law. Everyone would have it so prices would go down. Didn't happen.The prices went up. --- World Record Holder Best Score Dynasty Tactics 2,16 Gold 99,999's Vs 10.
That would never happen. Launch prices would actually be increased on purpose, as now they have your metaphorical balls gripped inside a metaphorical vice.
but the argument for that would be that since they no longer have to compete against piracy or used games because of the intrusive DRM they could afford to lower the price.
edit: not to mention most games wholesale for $30
This is as naive as when people believed the government that taxes would disappear after they were instated due to the war at the time. HA!
Have you not noticed that DD games prices do not go down generally, except on very rare occasions? They won't lower a damn thing if they can get away with it. --- PSN ID: RyuuHou24 "I never said that....and even if I said it, I never said it" - Dr Peter Venkman RGB
Well, sony seems to be testing launching games at $40.
If by some reason that did come true (not saying it will), I'd be all for it. But yeah, not gonna happen. They will most likely increase the price by like $5 or $10 to squeeze the paying customers as much as they can, and prices would stay high for as long as possible.
The used game market forces them to lower the price faster. --- PSN: SYRAPH , GT: TheRealSyraph Backlog on hold. Currently playing: Halo 4
