I'm thinking if they did this, people would actually deal with it effectively and not be that pissed off. I bought Sly 4 for $40 yesterday and even though it won't be a long game, I already feel I am getting my money's worth.

Maybe we should judge a game by it's content an match price? There is no reason DmC should be $60 if it's about 10 hours long with nothing to do afterwards besides selling!

I am thinking about this method:

$60 - 5-10 hour campaign with lots of multiplayer or any game 20+ without multiplayer

$40 - 20 and under hour game with no multiplayer

After a year, every "new" game must be sold digitally and at half price.

After two years every game sold physically must be $20

After three years and beyond: every game $10 or $15.
I think everyone in the gaming world weather you are a Nintendrone, Sony Pony, Xbot or part of the Master Race can agree that Patcher should be fired.

You put too much value on the time a game lasts rather than the enjoyment it provides.

It's hard to judge games by content length though. I always take longer to play games than whatever people here on GameFAQs claim the length of a game is. If they say it's 20, it takes me about 30 hours. And multiplayer is a whole other can of worms - some people ignore the multiplayer side. Some people play multiplayer for hundreds and hundreds of hours.

So while that's an interesting idea, I don't think it'll happen. Especially because those devs with the shorter length games will start arguing that their game is so good, they think it's worth paying the higher price for the less content. Or maybe they'll add in terrible content that no one likes just to extent the "play time".

Nex gen i'm going to have a big laugh at all you people who doubt whether used games will be allowed. Last gen I clearly saw that Blu Ray was going to win, and those are the ones that I am laughing at now.

It would have to be much cheaper. If every new game was $20, then I'd accept a "no used games" policy.

No used games means I can't sell my game or loan it to a friend. It also means I can't buy games that are out of print unless they're downloadable. It's just not worth it.

I'm fine with Steam's model, but that's because content on Steam is so damn cheap.

Sure, but since no game can ever be re-sold, what's to say games wont stay $60 forever? Or heck they could jack the price up, it'll be $70 or you don't play the new game...ever

Yeah I know its JUST a rumor. Just like the rumor 14 years ago about Microsoft making a gaming console.

Length means absolutely nothing. There is no regulation in place for time a game takes to beat for its price. COD will still be 4 hour campaigns with 90% of it being multiplayer, if not more. On top of that they will charge the full 60$ because they can and people would buy it.

They would be stupid to not allow used games on their system especially if Sony does. I don't think they're that stupid. And this is quite a bit different than a rumor they're going to make a console...
