I don't really care so much about playing used games. What hurts me is not being able to unload old games. That's what sucks.

That's why a lot of companies make you pay to play online and stuff now, so if you get a used copy you have to profit someway.

I can see it happening...it will shut companies down on gaming though and hurt the economy. Gamestop, GameXchange, Hastings and others would hate it bad.
Do companies make money off rentals? IE, places like gamefly; do developers still see a kickback from those situations?

I always thought it was only the used games that they hated. But a console only playing NEW games would even kill the RENTAL market, which seems like a terrible idea.

I'm already planning on probably sticking with just PS4/Vita next gen (possibly WiiU), but if this happens, then my decision just got a whole lot easier.

They don't profit outside of anything but new purchases...that's why companies rent and sell used..they can profit off 1 title thousands of times over.

And the developers just have new ones on the shelf collecting dust until they are either sent back or placed in the used section, because they couldn't sell new.

In the case they don't make a dime there either.

Re: Xbox 720

Don't see it coming true. I expect the 'online pass' model that a number of companies have started to use the last couple years to stick and used game buyers paying an optional surcharge for full functionality will continue.

Re: Xbox 720

The only reason I don't see it happening:

Microsoft will likely have their system released before Sony.

There's no way Microsoft takes a chance at making a decision like that, leaving Sony open to allow used games on their new console.

I just don't see any sort of mutual agreement happening. There's too much competition.

edit: A few seconds after I posted, I got to thinking..

Are the consoles at the mercy of the game developers or is it the other way around ?

Re: Xbox 720

How is microsoft going to enforce this? If they tie the game to an Xbox, then you wouldn't even be able to play the game on another Xbox. If you have 2 Xboxs in your house, you better pick which one you will be playing on or buy 2 copies.

If they do that it kills Gamefly. Gamefly purchases thousands of games each month and that hurts their bottom line. It would be foolish of them to think that if people cant rent games, they wont buy them.

Re: Xbox 720

Wasn't this the same rumor with the PS3 that never transpired? Don't see it happening.
