If Sony and Microsoft both block used games next gen what will you do?

I have a wii u, a pc, snes, nes, n64, GameCube, ps3, ps2, x360, original xbox, dreamcast, saturn, 3ds, Gba sp, genesis/cd/32x, and game gear. And all those generations with many, many games I have yet to play and enjoy. I'm good for years to come and have no concern and can wait until they realize its a bad idea and fix it.....that is of course if this actually comes to fruition.

One obviously. Only way I actually buy used games is when it's a very old game and you can't find it anymore. But when that happens, Amazon usually still has them for new. And usually around 50% cheaper than the used version.

I doubt they can legally block used games. At least not in Europe. After all, they ruled used digital sales legal. Sony and Microsoft could get sued for not playing by the rules.

PC gaming is the only answer. I already have a gaming PC, but it's not the only thing I game on...unless they decide to do that.

Steam deals>a console I can't by used games for/Wii U(lol)

Keep in mind. This does not affect used game buyer only, it affects used game sellers too.

Well first off I never buy used games so this doesn't effect me. I would still get a PS4. Sony's way of blocking used games is better then MS's. They just write something on the disc (like a tag they put on the disc) that links it do your system and you can play offline. MS however you have to enter a cd key and always be connected to the internet to play the game, this kind of DRM sucks even more. I have no problem with the Sony DRM.

I don't buy used games so I'm safe, I'm still getting a PS4.
It would suck for those that do buy them though. :/
