Default Pay $20 to see your video game ending.

Basically, they want to eliminate the second hand market in the US by making it where if you buy used or rent, they'll charge you $20 for it. As usual, they claim they won't affect new buyers, but that's a crock of **** since some people end up with gutted copies; and it wouldn't surprise me if they get away with this, that they'll start doing it normally.

That sucks for gamestop, but i buy my games used only because it's cheaper and my allowance isn't that good o.o

I'm sure the pirating community will find ways around that. Be it good or not. But it seems like whenever companies try to do something it ends up hurting normal people more often than whoever they were trying to originally target. (lol at spore)

I haven't gotten a game used before, though, so I hope that doesn't hurt me any.

We'll just BORROW them from friends who bought it retail then. That's even worse, we play the game AND no money was spent, doing nothing for the economy. Your choice developers.

QFT lol. That's just stupid, you take a second-hand game because it's cheaper, not to waste more money

What if they make it so that the game requires a satellite to pinpoint the exact location, and it can only be SET up once so you have to buy a license in order to move the game console, or otherwise the game..wait nvm your friend can come over to your house..

*cough*
agreed, devs are not smart at all

Wow, what greedy bastards. That's like buying a movie that's missing the last 15 minutes, or a record that only plays the first two minutes of each song. If anything, this move gives pirates more market share.

lol... yeah at gamestop most of our money is from used games. but a lot of people still prefer to buy new... and buying new you do get some extra perks. so if ppl have money to spend like that then let them...

besides big name games like Gears, Resistance, Fallout, the Madden games etc will always have buyers on first day.

If this happened five or more years ago I'm sure there would be cries of outrage from gamers everywhere. However, all this will do now is create more pirates; it must have been intentional, they can't really be that dumb.

So now lets eliminate any hope for the lower class to get stuff throwing us further into an economy crisis.

Next step for them is no more Used Car sales. Then no more Garage Sales. Then Thrift stores. Then....

Dumb idea.
