Quite frankly I just don't give a shit. There is a used market. Developers need to just fucking deal with it.


I don't know, I agree with you on one hand but on the other you have the people who do the retarded rental flipping stuff that really needs the hammer dropped on it. I don't think there being a used market is necessarily a reality going forward either, the industry is going to kill it in a generation or two at the most.

Embrace the used market. Works for the auto industry, works for books, works for plenty of things. Sony could make a killing doing videogame rentals over PSN like they do with movie rentals. They could still provide revenue to developers with per rental royalties in this case, where they do not generate that type of revenue from physical disc rentals. By doing it in this manner they could also control the property, so that it is harder to copy.
