*yawn* Another developer parroting the usual talking points of why the free market ought to do away with the first-sale doctrine. More power to the corporations always translates to less choices for the consumers.

Unless you're using that theory for the PC market and it proves wrong.

If you have no choice but to buy a $60 game, your collection will be much smaller. There are gamers typically with good taste on this forum, but the average gamer just buys Madden and COD. Most of the smaller developers will just die and the rest of us who like good games one day will have a choice between Madden or Call of Duty.

Smaller developers should say fuck you to consoles and just make on the PC. It's much more affordable, easier and with steam, they get free advertisement since steam always updates with PREORDER THIS GAME and others such as the recommending games to your friend list.

I would not miss console gaming if it disappeared. PC gaming gets pretty much the same games, if not better games now and if consoles are gone, almost all of those games that normally would come out on it would be on the PC now

I don't either, but if it goes that way, I rather have the only one to get it right get all the business for it!

I haven't read this entire thread, but I pose a query:

The gaming industry has been around for a long time now and gets more and more popular as time goes on. More and more companies seem ever eager to get their paws in the biz. So why hasn't used games destroyed the industry yet? Is this idiot from Silicon Knights so tremendously stupid that he thinks that only computer games make a profit? Why not get rid of used cars, too? Does he actually think every used game sale is a lost new game sale? Kind of like the MPAA and RIAA think that every downloaded copy of something is a legitimate lost sale. He's just a greedy fuck, and I wish nothing but the worst for him. He does not deserve to be in his position with his tremendous amount of stupidity and greed.

To the OP: It is not "all true", it is "all idiotic".

The good thing about used cars is they arent just 10% cheaper then a brand new car, unlike games. Sometimes only 5% cheaper.
