If corporations really want to kill second-hand market...they'd make games work only on 1 console.

I dont see how they could kill the used market. What, do publishers honestly think we keep every game we buy? Heck no, we arent millionaires, and the only way we can afford new games is to sell our old ones.

And in order to further save money, we buy pre-owned titles so that we may be able to afford newer and more expensive games.

That's a good argument for pre-owned games actually; that games we own are sold on towards funding the cost of newer titles. Games are getting more expensive these days, but that can't really be helped too much in this economic climate.
