Didn't Jack Tretton already say this wouldn't be the case with PS4?

He said that he didn't like the idea of blocking used games, but the decision wasn't up to him.

i dont buy used games anyway! cheap ass people!

Sorry, we just don't like being taken advantage of. Honestly, buying all games new instead of just supporting your favorite devs with that gift only opens the door for what is happening now: everyone getting raped.

I don't think it's fair to bar me from playing a game just because the publisher doesn't like how and where I bought it.

Some older values are values for a reason.

If they want to compete with used games, simply give me more value for buying it new. Like Nintendo does with Club Nintendo points.

Me neither. I want my games brand-new hot off the press in mint condition.

Then they fail. Simple.

Next gen doesn't play used games. It's called PC gaming.

It would be worse on console because that crowd doesn't complain much. PC gamers are more vocal more savvy crowd who know when they are getting screwed over.
Less Casuals in PC gaming.

Even if the keep used games they will find a way to further squeeze money out of console games.

Plus Consoles are dominated by greedy corporations like Activision.

Who dominates pc?

People are forgetting that if the consoles don't play used games... then they certainly won't play rented games either.
