I feel people have the right to chose rather to buy new or used software..It's sad that publishers wanna kill of something that has been part of the gaming culture since forever.

It all depends on the price of the used game...if the difference between the new and used game is only $15 then you might as well buy the new game.

Has anyone ever went to Game Stop and asked for a new game and the guy behind the counter pulls out a game in a white paper slip on case and then looks for the original box and puts it in?

This happened to me the other day when I was buying Sleeping Dogs at GS and I told that guy to dont bother again as I felt kind of cheated paying $60 since the game was already opened and not in the case.

dude, $15 is a huge difference! Maybe you're rich or something but $15 is a lot of money.

And I really have no idea where you have seen used games costing $15 less than the new one. Not even on ebay. Used games these days only cost 2-3 dollars less than the new one. And then when you add the online pass the used games end up being more expensive than buying them new. XD

If it is a $15 difference, than yeah I'm buying used. A $5 difference is another story...

When you can pick up Uncharted 2 for $6 then yeah, I'd say.

It's really not sad, it's just greed on the publishers part. So if you like having the option to buy a game used then stay away from cloud gaming and complete digital distribution because those two things will kill used games off.

Depends, I usually purchase a used game when it is:

-When it is extremely hard to find, especially with Amazon's ridiculous pricing on some titles.....

-If I am shaky on a new company. I look at is as foreplay before jumping in bed for the whole 9 yards. If I like what I see, Ill support their next installment full price.

-I look at Used Game outlets as a voting booth sometimes especially when it comes to companies that implement poor practices. If it's a main entry of a series I loved but I don't like the direction it went, I usually buy it used if it grows enough curiosity in me and to have an opinion of the game.

If I find games like Forza 3 and O.D.S.T. in one package for twenty bucks I will buy it every time. I will usually not buy used if it's only gonna save me a couple of dollars unless it's part of a buy two get one free deal.
