Well, I can see it from Sony's point of view: They need to make money. This helps them do that. They do deserve to get some cash from second hand sales.
No they don't. And how the hell did they convince you that they do? Used games are just like anything else used. You should be able to sell it. They need to make more money? What, they don't have enough? What the hell is wrong with you to side with the corporations that are constantly finding new ways to fuck you over? Seriously, what the fuck is wrong with you? Used games exist because not everyone has the money to buy new games, and because people want to sell shitty games they don't need anymore. Also, when you sell a game, then you have the money to buy another one. Which in a long run makes them more money than this shitty practice. For fuck sake it's not hard to understand how illogical and just plain greedy this practice is.
Well considering that I trade in games all the damn time, and I also buy used games for the most part, but I can still see it isn't illogical. COMPANIES HAVE TO MAKE MONEY
they don't have to please me or you. They have to tread a fine line. Piss off too many people like you, they start losing money, they piss off just few enough people, and they make more money.
Sony are NOT a fucking charity. They don't owe you or me any fucking favours. Personally I wouldn't buy a game pre-owned that had a one use online pass. I refuse to pay £10 for online DLC because they don't want me buying second hand. So yes, I get why it's kind of a dick move, but at the same time: SO FUCKING WHAT? It doesn't matter. It's a business. They earn money. It's their jobs. Games cost hundreds of millions of dollars to create. They need to sell enough of them to not only recoup the investment, but then to make a profit, too.
So nothings wrong with me, you indignant, self entitled arse. I'm just clever enough to realise that EA don't owe me anything, and that used games sales hurt their income.
