‘Online passes could devalue games’ Braben warns

Frontier Developments founder calls action on the pre-owned issue.

Second-user charges on pre-owned titles may have an adverse affect on the value of games, industry veteran David Braben has warned.

The publishing world’s latest assault on the so-far indomitable pre-owned sector is to splice online pay-walls into games, in a way that would penalise customers for buying games second-hand. (David Braben, Industry)

It only hurts the Devs more. I was going to go in with a few friends for games, cause we all work different shifts thus we(3) buy 1 game and just take turns playing it. But with online passes coming around we don't buy those games cause only 1 gets online access. So the Devs are only cutting themselves out of the profit.

For those who say "well get your own" Remember some profit is better then NO PROFIT.
