Gonna have to go with general consensus here - I'm not buying a game that's sold under this kind of racket. If I buy a used cd, movie, car, fridge, whatever, I'm paying the guy who bought it, not the guy who made it. You know, maybe GM should get a cut of every used GM car sold. And hell, why don't we give each assembly line worker a cut as well? No, not for me. If a game isn't truly mine, I sure won't buy it, just as I wouldn't buy a fridge if the Maytag guy came and wanted his cut if I resold it.
The video game industry has just somehow gotten the idea in their heads that they're entitled to make money without making a product to earn it. They think that every time their product changes hands they should be paid. Well, time for them to wake up. I paid for that game, it's mine.
When I go to resell it, it's my product
and my money.
And if they think otherwise, my business is going elsewhere. I need a new hobby...
Edit: After a little more thinking, I would be ok with game companies "renting" me their titles as they want to, but only if they gave me a full refund of every cent I paid for it when I want to resell it. I don't care if I paid $50 for it then and it's a $20 bin title now, I want my $50 back. If they're gonna run a racket, I want a piece of the action. This comment was edited on Sep 28, 10:03.
Huh? I'm sorry, I was thinking about cake.
