The whole concept and subsequent argument regarding secondhand video game sales seems like a moot point.

Same here. At the same time though I can understand companies like Capcom wanting to stop their games being resold.

Game stores make the profit from initial sale of new games, then people trade them in and get a low trade in price for it, then it goes back on the shelf for twice the price it was traded in at.

The real winners these days appear to be store like Gamestation in the UK and Gamestop in the US not the developers.

No Capcom are fools they overcharge for DLC this entire generation and this save data thing for Resi if it continues with more titles it will only bring more problems.
