i don't understand why people getting high and mighty about rental or second hand games,it 's not crime to do that or is it? i don't know.

The industry is just mad because they don't get a slice of that pie. You get to sell it once, sorry. Most of us don't like Gamestop because, well, they rip people off. Used games are supposed to save you money. Charging $5 less for a used game than for a new game is ridiculous.

IMO that's a fallacy. The gamer who wants to resell the game would probably not buy it in the first place if he couldn't resell it. It seems to me they are chasing their own tail if they want to get rid of the second hand games market. The consequence of destroying the second hand market will certainly have a negative impact on firsthand sales. I guess they've done research on this perspective but I still think that the second hand market helps in an important way and not everyone will pay full price.

What's a fallacy? It wasn't clear what you were referring to.
