Kind of off topic, but here are my thoughts towards today's GFAQs poll

#1ShibiscuitPosted 2/8/2013 12:54:03 PM(edited)
It's about people not wanting to buy a new console if it doesn't have a playback feature.
The majority of GFAQs voted "No, I will NOT buy a new console if it blocks old games", which I think is incredibly stupid.
...Why would you own, let's say, PS3 games, if you don't own a PS3 console? You get what I mean? And, besides, if you really wanted to play an old console's game, then just play it on the old console. People need to stop complaining about every single inconvenience in their life.

But hey, I guess that's what PC games are for yaaay

edit:

OKAY JK I MISUNDERSTOOD carry along

Its not the playback. Its the fact that if you dont buy the game new, you couldn't play it. Which is stupid.

Used games and old generation games are different things.

It means you would be unable to buy a pre-owned copy of CoD, for example, and play it on your console.

You misunderstood. They're talking about re-selling used games. I buy game A. I finish game A. I sell game A to my friend. PC games typically do not allow you to do this.

It has nothing to do with playback.

It's about if you couldn't buy games that are used. Which is quite silly, I don't understand why any console developer would implement a block against used games.

You're just jealous because the voices are only talking to me.

Lets say you bought a PS3.
You bought PS3 games.
You now want to sell your PS3 for a PS4 but not your games that you still play.
SOL son.

No, I don't get what you mean. Today's poll isn't talking about backwards compatibility so your complaining about people complaining makes no sense.
