Michael Futter Writes: As the war against used game sales heats up, it seems that gamers are the ones caught in the crossfire. When EA announced their “Project $10″ initiative to get a slice of the secondary market, gamers were in an uproar. (Some of you may know “Project $10″ better as a now common feature in new games: Online Passes.)
The most recent escalation by Capcom makes EA look like a knight in shining armor by comparison. Capcom confirmed today that copies of Resident Evil: Mercenaries for the 3DS will have a single save file for the life of the game card. That save file cannot be erased or altered in any way. Not only does this mean that anyone buying a used copy will have some or all of the game already completed, but you cannot even loan the game to a friend or share with a sibling.
