Last I've checked, car & gun manufacturers don't treat you like a criminal for buying & selling a used game. LOL!
Damn typo, I mean "selling used."
Like the mobile market has ever had use games and its Growing the fastest. Truth is these whiners will Complain but when the next gen hits and they have nothing to play They will buy the games anyway. Just not used.
Mobile games don't have anywhere near the budget of a console game nor are they even remotely as expensive. I usually buy the games that I want at day 1 for full price. (Mostly fighting games or established franchises.) The problem is that there's hardly any games I want.
I'll simply stop gaming all together because videogames honestly aren't worth the default price anymore. The market of entertainment venues are decided by the consumers. A market only exists so long as there is a demand. I guess gaming exec. don't have to worry because there seems to be many shills like you who think that you're doing the gaming market a service by buying these crappy games that only last a hour, only for the rest of the game life to be spent on mediocre multiplayer.
honestly i don't care if they do, i only really buy games i know i'm going to play for a long time, if anything it'll save me buying countless games i don't like and sticking to a few i enjoy, which in the long run will save money.
it'll also mean devs won't rush games, they'll want to sell it, so they'll make it as good as it can possibly be on release, so people buy it, rather than a mediocre game that gets good with DLC and patches
I'll just stick with my PC, and probably buy a Wii U as well. If they block used games, they might as well just go digital only. I like to think that I'll be able to share my games with my kids eventually, like my parents shared their games with me. I'd hate to think that if my console broke and I had to replace it, all of my games would be useless. Yes, that will happen. 15-20 years from now, Microsoft and Sony won't be supporting license transfers for 720/PS4 games, when those system's successors are not even supported any more.

It's not just used games. If they have something like Steam, what happens when you run out of space, or when the console breaks down? Even assuming they keep records online, so you don't have to rebuy everything in case something goes wrong, what happens when someone goes for another PSN fiasco you end up losing that information? With consoles always connected online there's a ton more stuff that can go wrong. They will end up having control of almost everything.
