NowGamer - The Games Industry Hates Gamers And It Needs To Change.
With rumours flying of Xbox 720 and PS4 blocking out second-hand games entirely (no more lending FIFA to your mates) or requiring a constant net connection (sorry, non-fibreoptic users – upgrade your modems already), it seems the games industry is perfectly placed for this same struggle between what publishers want and what gamers – the games buyers – are prepared to accept. We spoke to Sony’s Fergal Gara, who seemed to suggest Sony might well do it.

Even this week, EA revealed it plans to introduce more micro-transactions because gamers ‘enjoy and demand’ them.

We don’t.
