Ever wanted to inform the community about a piece of gaming news, but didn't want to create a new thread just for it? Thats why I created this thread. Talk about PS3, Wii, 360, PS Vita, PSP, 3DS, DS, etc. etc. etc.
I don't see what's wrong with giving bonuses to people who buy the game brand-new; after all, those are the biggest fans and in the end they keep the videogame industry alive (so that all of us can profit from it). I think it's similar to giving someone a poster or a strategy guide with their buy.
But yeah the idea of not allowing used games altogether is a bit disturbing, sounds a lot like that DRM fiasco to me.
To me personally, this would only affect me in years time: I might buy a PS4 or 720 in a few years, what if they don't sell the game I want in stores anymore? It's happened with Gamecube, I don't see why it wouldn't happen again.
Great point Thomas, never though of that! EA has slightly started kind of the same thing. If you buy a used copy of Madden 12, you have to buy a $10 "online" pass to play online, since you bought the game used. If you buy it new, it already comes with a code you can redeem for free online. It's like a lowblow basically.
