Skewed and Reviewed Posts TheirThoughts on The Next Gen Console Anti-Used Game Issue

Gareth at Skewed and Reviewed has posted an audio file on his thoughts on the anti used game software issue. He points out that the same battle happened in the 90s over the sale of used music cds and how the pending legal battles could tarnish the launch of new systems using this tech. (Sony, Tech)

Except that Gareth is not aware that SONY and Microsoft and Nintendo are not doing this.

Can you provide an official MS or Sony response confirming this?

Right now we can only assume that it wont be or will implemented onto next gen consoles.

Not to be rude but this was 2nd on the list when I searched. Of course, the opposite is true as well: Can you provide an official MS or SONY statement confirming that they WILL block used games. SONY and MS both have patents that they never intend to bring to fruition. Owning a patent doesn't precipitate its implementation.

I also did not say they were my focus was on if they did and how this battle played out prior in the music industry, and as a result it shut down shops, destroyed some music artists, and caused certain companies to fail.
