You mean with ebooks and all the various formats they come in, including DRM laced adobe epubs?Kahunaburger said:Fingers crossed that the book industry never figures out a way to do this.
OT:I think back in the day used games sales were a lot different than they are now. Game never used to have budgets as large as they do now, some game budgets are higher than some Hollywood blockbuster films. Everytime a used game is purchased whether it be a AAA title or an Indie title the publishers lose the money. Why should they support a game in an industry where they can't risk it flopping? Publishers aren't in the industry to make revolutionary games they are in it to make money. That is why Call of Duty gets a new game every year, because it makes money. As soon as it stops, they will stop making them. Forget this whole part about "make a game that people don't want to sell", that is complete and total bullshit. There is always going to be people that just play the game for the story, complete the game and move on to the next. They have no care or want to go back and replay it to find any Easter Eggs or whatnot, they achieved their goal, and they want a new story.
Just like piracy, used games nothing to help the market they are in, they just pretend they are important. If you want bigger, better, revolutionary games. Start buying the fucking things new. Think of that extra $5 an investment in the future of gaming,
