Its like people calling the Vita over priced. There pathetic.


It is over priced. Just because you have money, doesn't mean you should just buy anything at any price without thinking about it.

Also, *they're


No it's not, at all. It's memory cards on the other hand, are overpriced.

"Hey I am just saying it's pretty silly to stand by your "principle" when it's already being violated"


No, it's not, and that's a stupid argument to make.

I buy games the way I've been buying them since 1977. I go to the store. I buy a game. I put it in my system. I enjoy it, and if I hate it I sell it off. Or, if a game is released that's ridiculously stupid priced, I'll buy a used copy. And I can do that because it's my damned system, and if you don't like it then screw you. I couldn't give a rat's tail about what businesses shenanigan with each other. What I do know is that if I buy a game, a legitimate, legal game, then I've got the damned right to jam it a console and play, "licenses" be damned. And if some idiot company tries to take that away, then they won't ever get any of my cash.

And I know I'm not the only one.


Used copy of a game just released is like $4 cheaper. What makes you think that they would ever prevent you from playing a game you bought? Obviously nobody would be selling used games as they are worthless so you wouldn't have to worry about that. As for licensing issues Sony has been doing it right. Even if they ban your account you can still play the games you downloaded so long as you didn't delete them.

I would get where you are coming from if Sony was like amazon with the kindle. That is fu**ed up. If they ban your amazon account not only will you not be able to re-download your books they will also wipe your kindle too. But Sony hasn't and never will do that.

Did you not read my next sentence? Obviously no used games would be for sale as they are worthless.

And thus a company that implements it won't ever get any of my cash.

You want to keep on facilitating anti consumer power grabs, that's your business. You hold neither the ethical high ground, nor the intellectual one.

There is nothing unethical about blocking used games. It's unethical that a company like gamestop makes billions of dollars every year by trading and reselling games and the people who made those games don't see a penny of it. It's thanks to DD that $1 games on iphone and smartphone games are able to thrive. If gamestop could get in the middle of that somehow it would leave those companies out of business because people will pay for the used version for 30 cents less leaving the creators without a cent.

Movies and music have already smashed the used sections of there markets. Blockbuster is on the verge of going out of business. I haven't seen an FYE in years. I have never seen a used record shop. DVD and CD sales are plummeting.

Itunes lets you pay $1 for a song. It's cheaper and more convenient than having to drive to a walmart and pick up a cd. It ensures the people who made that song get there fair share for there work.

Netflix and Hulu have changed the way people watch movies and shows with there streaming model. Now any person who makes a show or movie can put it up on one of those sites and get paid the money they earned for making the show.

Games are the only medium that still have a multi billion dollar company devoted to the used market. It's time that changed and creators of those games get paid for there work.

Entertainment media is actually the exception rather than the rule.

Cars? Household appliances? Clothes? Just about everything beyond food can be resold, really.

Blah, blah blah, kingofall214.

Justify it all you want.

You're still wrong.

You're still falling for their unethical crap.

I don't give a rip about you, your misguided opinion, or anything else that comes from your keyboard. I'll be putting you on ignore as soon as I finish this post, because it's obvious to me that you don't have the brainpower to see when you're being manipulated. From the outset, big corporations edge out consumer rights piece by piece with unethical tactics- region locking, blocking used games, ridiculous DRM schemes, myraid account requirements.

Go right ahead and have them shove their crap up your ass. I won't.

Screw off.

*IGNORE*.

Entertainment media is the only thing it applies to. Once you play a game or watch a movie you are done with it. You are paying for the experience more than the actual content. It's the reason why you can't sell used tickets. You pay for one ride and it's up.

With everything you listed it isn't a one time use object.
