For practical purposes I don't really care since I don't really buy any, and yet I still hate the idea and think it's absolutely ridiculous. It would only affect me by stopping me from lending/borrowing anything, but still, it's incredibly dumb.
Also I can't see how it could work without completely destroying the rental industry.
Sony and Microsoft would be stupid to release systems that always need to be online and/or can't play used games. System sales would tank (and rightfully so), they would effectively give the generation to Nintendo (again), and Kaz Hirai and Steve Ballmer would both be fired.

Simple, I won't support any console that does anything like this. I don't care if it's a game console, PC, handheld, or otherwise, I will NOT support it! I don't play PC games in the first place because of this!
