You just totally posted what I've never cared enough to type out myself. Greatest post on GameFAQs.
It won't happen but I would get along just fine if it somehow did. I pre-order a lot and if I don't get games a t launch, I just wait for a price drop or sale and buy them new then.

I will do nothing, not a big deal too me. Switching to PC does not make since to me, where do you get used PC games?
Trolls and ignorant people gets added to my ignore list.
wii U and retro all the way baby !!! that includes 360 and ps3
Thalia, Guardian of Thraben sometimes she hits me first!!!!
I don't understand those who say they would swap to PC - PC blocked used game sales a decade ago.
Correction: they tried to, hence the explosion in piracy rates (and justifiably so). Although most people just go for the completely free form of piracy rather than the "pay your friend for his copy, then crack it so you can use it" form. The business majors running these companies aren't exactly the brightest bunch; any fool off the street could have seen that coming.

If the next playstation and xbox block used games, I will only own a Wii U this generation. I still buy and collect games from generation 2 and up, and blocking used games will make me unable to do this for this generation. Imagine when the generation after hits, there will be no way to play all these old games, and the discs will just end up as garbage. Also, I buy a lot of games used because I simply can't afford to spend $100 per game (with the dlc). In this economy a lot of people can't afford the extremely high prices of games. Blocking used games is not the answer. What they should do is lower the prices of games, and stop holding back content for dlc. So I will never buy a console that blocks used games. Unless there was a mod that gave it the ability to play them.
I wouldn't buy the consoles! I own a decent retro game collection and enjoy 'game hunting'. If these systems lock out used video games i'd never be able to obtain all the games i want for the system.
Of course i have a good amount of faith that some hackers will set this whole situation straight.
I hope people don't support their 1984 agenda.
i laugh at all you fanboys who defended DLC and all the dumbing-down of games in the current generation, you are the ones who made this happen. when you bend over and take it in the ass from these companies, they are gonna keep going and push their limits.
As long as the WiiU gets good 3rd party support I'll buy it.
