Online Passes are a good thing. It stops people from buying used copies.

Posting again. And I'm going to keep posting this every time this ridiculousness pops up.

Used games don't hurt a thing. They never have and they never will.

70% of credit goes towards buying new products (there goes the idea that used games don't spur new game sales).

http://finance.yahoo.com/blogs/the-exchange/gamestop-shares-fall-224923306.html

Average price of new games is $40, average for used is under $20 (shoots down the "$5 less" crowd. Also wrecks the people that say used sales hurt new sales early on).

Also has a revenue breakdown chart that flat out DESTROYS that ridiculous "gamestop makes all of their money from pre-owned products" garbage (Spoilers: Their revenue from new products is double that of pre-owned).
Why used games don't hurt the industry and why content passes are bull****: http://umthumbs.gametrailers.com/users/noobiablos/gamepad/?

Something that is cheap if you can't afford online passes or buying new copies


Go outside or do something productive if you're that bored. Making stupid comments on a message board to try to annoy random strangers shouldn't entertain you.

If someone wants to buy a game when it drops to $20, then they're a smart shopper. Some people actually have other expenses than video games. I'm sure you already know that.

Also, online passes don't stop people from buying used games. If a new copy of a game is $40 and a used copy is $20, and the online pass costs $10, you're still saving $10 (unless you have to buy a $20 psn card because you don't use your cc on your ps3/360 or don't have any leftover $ in your ps store wallet).
