Why should Sony/Microsoft care about consumers complaining about used games?

#1PangLaPosted 2/6/2013 9:12:16 PM
They don't get any money from you, they could careless if you buy their next gen consoles or not because of used games. They make money from software sales not hardware. Why would they want to please the people that haven't make them a cent?
#2TomoEK9Posted 2/6/2013 9:15:37 PM
Because they need those initial sales of their console to begin with. If enough people say they don't want to buy a console without the ability to play used games, their profits will show what a difference it makes.

Thats why they should care.

Because the situation isn't so black and white like you make it out to be. I buy a mix of new and used games from a variety of retailers. While I know MS isn't going to implement this, trying to simplify the argument as 100% or 100% against completely misses what I would bet is the majority of consumers.

You can lie to yourself but you wanted to see if anyone is complaining, and people are. It wouldn't take long for enough people in the US (the most sue happy place in the world) to follow suit.

So kiddo, it seems that used PC games are an issue, and people are complaining.

Because the people they would piss off with such a policy are the ones they expect to buy their goddamn consoles!

Is this really that difficult to understand?

Issue? This has been going on for years in the US. Way to show your age. Also in the mobile market and no lawsuits so nice try
