Good vs Evil: Xbox 720, PlayStation 4 Could Make Used Games Extinct

JI writes: "In this original piece I takes a look at what it means for used games to exist in the gaming community versus the appeal of eliminating them industry-wide.

In the old days, everybody shared video games. Gaming was a rare thing typically, but when you met people that played video games many around them found their way to becoming gamers themselves as well....." (PS4, Xbox One)

I think it's fair. If you make something you should get all the profit for taking the risk and investing. If you can't afford a game go without it until you can. Anyone that says different has lost touch with reality and has been too spoiled. I buy all my CDs new even though I could easily download them for free. Plus I like the feeling of having to wait and work to get a new game or CD. If I like something why would I want to cut out the people that made it happen. You gotta remember that as a consumer you don't really have rights but you do have choices.

@ME_MY: like I said above "if you can't afford a game go without it until you can". We're talking video games not health care. If you're really low income then you can buy an older system or wait until the the games get cheaper. $60 isn't a joke that's an investment. I don't have a whole lot of money to put towards games and that's why if I do get a game I read the reviews, watch gameplay videos and try a demo if I can before buying. The biggest thing about used games is you're most of the time only saving $5! That's $55 that the people that Made the game will never see because you want to save $5.

Well what about the families with low income? They deserve to game as much as you do. Used gaming is a great budget for those who don't have the money buy games at full price. Take that away from the consumer then you're bound to let them choose a pirate means. I don't endorse or agree with that but I feel that is what is going to happen.

that may be so but less games will be bought so i kind of dont see how that helps the developers either way

another reason anyone would buy used is to buy more then one game under 60 dollars

i personally dont buy used these days unless under extreme circumstances like its not being sold new anymore etc etc other wise i wait till it gets cheaper brand new

example i can get dragon age 2 for ten bucks new, sly cooper trilogy and others etc etc

for those that like to save money or dont want to spend out the bottom for one game a month but more then that then this is a great way to do it

unless it was a title i must play immediatly then thats a different case other wise for other titles i want i'll just wait and pay half the price
