What's fun is that this isn't unique to video games.

Want to buy a machine for a factory or even a doctor's office? There's a click fee involved, so every time you use that machine you send some cash to the company that made that machine.

I'm getting laser eye surgery and when I was in for my consultation the doctor was telling me all about the scheme for his laser as you describe. He was showing me these cards that are one time use that cost him some ridiculous amount of money. My mind immediately jumped to DRM/DLC and I had to stop myself from chuckling as I listened to his rage which was along the lines of "These greedy fucking assholes already charged me $5 million for the laser and now they want another $500 every time I use it!"


When I got laser eye surgery, they didn't tell me that... awww...

Granted when they were describing what would happen and they mentioned that I won't be able to blink and they will having something to hold my eye open I immediately said "So it'll be like in Clockwork Orange?" Needless to say they quickly told me no, but was a new one they would have to tell the surgeons.
