Op Ed

GameFront - Why Every Defense of Online Passes Has Been Bullsh**.
I am not going to go into the many better ways that publishers could be coping with used sales, nor am I going to reiterate exactly how bad the online pass scam truly is. Iíve done that many times, all over the Internet. However, I want to make it clear that the situation affects many, many more people than have been represented lately. Itís not just about people getting mad that they canít buy games used anymore. As a reviewer, I get most games free, so this affects me less than most, and IíM still pissed off by online passes. I am pissed off because theyíre a bad idea, with many negative implications, and it sickens me how gleefully the white knights have glossed over those implications to focus on the ONE issue that theyíre vaguely correct about.

So would you be less annoyed by Gamestop if they were selling the used game for less? Or should they be making more on new copies, to give them more incentive to push those?
