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

It would suck to not be able to buy Hidden Gems when at the end of the Gen. Those games that don't have enough money to afford space on MS or PSN servers...

As long as they didn't go full digital it wouldn't affect me one bit. They go full digital and I walk.

I'd switch to pc gaming exclusively. Although I think the chances of next gen consoles blocking used games is about 0. There are only so many copies of a game one can make.
I came here to chew bubblegum and kick ass. And I'm all out of ass. I'm out of gum too. I guess I'll just sit here.

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.

Yeah and then your console stops working, then you have to buy a new console, then your games won't work because they're tied to your first console so you have to buy them all over again.

Just because you don't buy used games, doesn't mean next gen consoles blocking them won't affect you.

While I think this rumor is just that at this point, I'll probably stick with my current consoles, and get a Wii U.

how about not buying the new consoles and enjoying playing your old console

I guess I will buy fewer games, which means in turn I will buy less DLC, which means that they'll in the long run probably get LESS money from me.
Try again tomorrow, I'll gladly take you on.
