Topic for people who 100% support the ban on used games for future consoles

#1Still__RippinPosted 2/9/2013 4:20:58 AM
Supporting the ban on used games is not going to make the industry tank. It will empower the devs and give them the hard earned money they deserve. If games go this route l suspect a DD method will make out of print games still able to be bought and played. Perhaps lower initial prices and good sales like Steam will be there to compensate for no used games. Seems like a great idea to me.

I agree. People stupid enough to think it will tank need to remember one simple thing. When NPD list game sales they only count NEW sales. Meaning that games like CoD will still have the same amount of millions of people willing to buy it new if not more since there would be no used option.

This means they reach their break even point on the game faster and can afford to drop the price quicker. Especially if this is Digital.

Also look at the PC market, phones and digital downloads that sell like crazy. There is no used market for them but they aren't suffering. If anything you see better sales on markets like steam and ios then you do for full retail titles which you can trade in.

Besides at the end o the day you have to ask yourself this, is it worth the price or not, if you don't think it is then wait for a price drop or stop gaming. When the next game comes out that you're a fan of i bet your warped morals would be pushed aside to play the game, if not, then you're not a gamer to begin with.

to quote myself in the last topic, I just think it'd be awesome to never again see the words:

"i'm not supporting this dev, i'm buying used"

that alone, is worth the change.

People who object to digital distribution are cheapskate nickel nursers who squeeze their quarters so tight the eagle screams. Gaming is a hobby, hobbies cost money... pay up or take up stamp collecting.

I hope all used games are blocked... and I hope DD becomes common place standard. Sophisticated gamers with sophisticated taste certainly would agree the perks far out weigh the downs.

Yeah i don't get that. I don't support devs who make games i do not enjoy by simply not buying their game. Otherwise I buy it and support them.

Correct. To buy their game, means they made something you actually want........so why piss and moan about "not supporting" them?

It's borderline stupid, if not confirmed.

Anyone who agrees with this automatically gets their right to have an opinion on the subject revoked, you sir, now have no right to an opinion.

Lol, digital games drop price? Did you even read my post child? There are games that are quite a few years old on the PSN store that are still $60 when they're in store for half that, sometimes less than half, going all digital doesn't mean dick when it comes to price drops.

Phones, ipods, ipads and iphone games are irrelevant, they're not really games, they're just little two dollar hunks of trash people call games, oh, by the way, why aren't the people on the PC market complaining? Because if they can't buy it used, it's not that hard to pirate it.

Oh look, another tool who thinks "Either buy every game brand new or stop gaming." well lets see here...how about "Either buy that car new or stop driving." and "Either buy every book new or stop reading." There's absolutely no logic in that argument kid.
