I would be kind of bummed. Although I do buy games I really want on Day 1, I do pick up games used after they become cheaper.

It's hard to say what I would do personally, Hopefully the price of new games becomes cheaper, but I think there will be so much opposition that it won't happen.

But Steam offers very good deals on PC games, and that looks like it will become a good option.

Wouldn't be any different than what I'm doing with the Vita; buying everything I'm even remotely interested in new. Maybe that's a crap way to go about it but used games have burned me a lot through this gen. So many return trips...

Its not just about used games. It will also prevent you from loaning or borrowing games....

I'll probably avoid them altogether. Either that, or I'll just buy the next Playstation. I haven't touched my Xbox for a year, so I doubt I'd really care about the next Xbox.
