Oh, and as an addition... I thought it was awesome that he said:
"But in theory, you could see it the other way, because a lot of companies making games today are struggling based on second-hand sales," Bach said. "So on the positive side, you could see more games being created because of this, and also more new IPs, because there'd be a bigger market for games that don't have, for instance, multiplayer. There could be awesome single-player-only games, which you can't really do these days because people just pirate them, which is sad.

Yup, a producer who thinks that second-hand sales are piracy.

No he says second-hand sales of SINGLE PLAYER GAMES are pirated more, which is true. If you have a game that has a multiplayer component, and they have to log into a server to play then you will have less piracy of a game that they can just download and requires no online authentication.
