I find it sad that gaming and the industry are at a point that "it plays used games" is a point people get excited about.....it is like announcing that you are able to adjust brightness and FOV....they took a page from the airlines, and now everything is ala carte.
It is sad, but I think this goes a lot deeper than that. It really coming down to people being told what to do and what they canít do.
And thatís where many are drawing the line. This situation always reminds me of what it would be like if you were trying to sell your car and now all the sudden the manufacture says oh no, we get a cut out of this too. Same principle. For the life of me I canít understand why the publishers feel that they have a right to make more profit off a game they already made money from in the first place.
To me this is just morally wrong and should not be allowed to happen ever.
