My mate made a good point the other day actually. If me and my mates want to play splitscreen games that not all of us own, we won't be able to play other's copies on our consoles. Very inconvenient.

Sure we could just play on the console of the guy who owns the game, but that's not always possible.

I mean, I don't buy used games coz I just don't trust them, but if it's one thing I love about console gaming, it's splitscreen multiplayer, and this whole thing, if implemented, will really hurt that.

Plus it's handy to borrow a game off of someone every now and then. I usually borrow games I'm not sure about just in case there's a risk of wasting money.

No console should ever ban used games. That would be anti consumer.
