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.
That's the problem though. They have already taken quite a few consumer unfriendly actions in the name of reducing piracy or used game sales, but not once has that resulted in lower prices for purchasers of those games. Although few in number, the console games I do buy are almost always new, but I purchase them with the foreknowledge that I can resell them for at least 30% of my original cost, making the game really only cost me $40 or less. There's NO WAY in hell, I'm paying a "real" $60 for a console game, so I'll end up buying far fewer, if any console games. I don't actually think the publishers are as stupid as we think, so surely then know that what I've described here is true for some users. I can only guess that they feel the percentage of their customer base that will behave in this manner, i.e. buy fewer or no games, is much smaller than what I think it is.
