PC gaming has already been doing this for years now. Pretty much every new PC game requires you to activate it through some online service (battlenet, steam, origin), locking that copy to you and making it have no resell value. So if this is the death knell of console gaming and there is no alternative then where are people going to migrate to for their gaming fix?
I've really got no problem with not being able to sell back a game; in fact I know that going into each Steam purchase I make. I think the big difference is that with Steam, I've gotten most games for between $2 and $10 - a price I can live with and don't feel the need to sell back to not feel ape raped by new game prices. If they go down that road, they'd better be ready to drop the price of titles considerably to make up for the value lost to trade-ins.
