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.

I never bought a used game this entire gen. All new.
Born August 22nd 1989. Gaming since August 22nd 1989. Favorite Console this gen: Playstation 3. Now playing Hitman HD Collection.

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...

Il keep gaming on current gen consoles

Then maybe consider next gen late into it's life when most games are very cheap

I won't buy the consoles if they do....I'll just make my Wii-U my main....the Wind Waker Remake will help a lot.

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.
