Bring back your amazing previous titles, WITHOUT taking a $hit on them like all of the other major companies (and FF13... puke), and I'm sold for the next two PS consoles. I.E. Final Fantasy VII, Legend of Dragoon, Final Fantasy Tactics, Chrono Cross, Front Mission 3, Xenogears, Breath of Fire, etc.

@KokutenNagaki I agree. Also, Golden Sun for GBA was an AMAZING pair of games, but the DS version (Dark Dawn?) fell FAR short of my expectations of awesomeness.

@cjburnfist : Sorry, but the Beta was an absolute joke in terms of representing the entire game. I was very hesitant at first as well, but once I got to about level 15+, things REALLY started to become very enjoyable.

The gamers get several things, theoretically. These are: 1) Less need to purchase DLC as companies will receive a higher % of income. 2) Better and more thorough review systems to filter out the terrible games. 3) More innovation in games -- assuming companies use their higher profits correctly. Of course, this is all assuming we don't have to deal with corporate greed... but then again, that's unlikely.

In all honesty, buying a used game is no different than buying a used car or used anything for that matter; in the end, the producer doesn't see a dime of the re-sale, and that's fine I guess. I will always personally buy new games though, simply because I feel like I am doing my part and supporting the industry, and I don't like throwing my money at GameStop if I can help it. What it boils down to is whether or not you feel like you're getting a good deal, both as the buyer and the seller of new and/or used games. If you're going to buy a game, new or used, you should always do some research on it, much to the same as anything else, before you buy it. Your chances of disappointment will be greatly reduced and you will value your games a lot more.

I agree 100% with the game companies, and I avoid buying used games at all costs for this exact reason. Seeing as GameStop makes millions upon millions by buying ridiculously low from consumers and usually selling for only $5-$10 under the price, the game industry doesn't see a dime of this, and thus hinders future game production. Having gamed for over 22 years of my life, games have been an important entertainment venue for me, and I do what I can by buying their games new so that I can continue to enjoy them. To be completely honest, it's only a matter of time until retail game stores are done, much the same as video rental stores. With more and more people obtaining high-speed internet, it's only matter of time until these stores are phased out, and to be honest... I won't miss them. There is almost no reason to go to these stores anymore, as they offer little extra incentive to buy from them when you can just buy anything you want on the internet and/or download it, or just go to a department store and pay the same, if not cheaper, price. I'm all about saving money, but not at the expense of the video game industry. I personally feel as if more and more games now-a-days are about quantity over quality, just so they can stay ahead.
