@Megavideogamer a used car sells once or twice in its life time. A used game can sell 100x that in its life time.

@RavenXavier ... so people who own a store should make money from the people who MAKE THE GAME? I do not think so. I only want the people who ACTUALLY has something to do with the game to make money so they can make MORE AND BETTER GAMES!

@mike300zxt This is a great Idea. Only problem is that with Digital download they do not really need to set up a resale, it would be more like a rental. Well, they could market either way.

Still they could all chip in for a store that buys and sells used games. with all the money going to the developers involved. Just think if Gamestop was owned by the developers. every game sold the money would go to the developer that made the game minus a cut to keep the stores running.

@Hillsy_ IF used game sales eat away at money made FOR developers and publishers then the cost of games will grow and the number of games will shrink. Target, Best Buy, Gamespot, are a few local places to buy and sell used games. They make BILLIONS and the developers/Publishers get NOTHING. Online there is Amazon, Craigslist, and others to buy and sell Games which the Developer?publisher gets NOTHING. Renting games has grown as Redbox has joined and Gamefly grows, and Developers/Publishers get little out of it. Game Piracy has increased over the years and Developers/Publishers get NOTHING from it. All together the games industry should be HUGE but game sales have fallen moth over moth and year over year game sales have not increased from their peak in quite a few years, with only a few games selling Millions upon Millions.

WE ARE obliviously clamoring for our own demise.

@SomePlayaDude Nothing can be resold like games. Cars are NOT resold every month or two. Houses are not resold every moth or two. Computers are not resold every 2 months when they are done with.

@LuciusJose It depends if the developers make the games for whichever console blocks used games and the games are cheap enough compared to the console without the lock out then the IMPORTANT people who buy NEW games will flock to the console that locks out used games. What will it matter if the console that allows used games have few games sales because PEOPLE are waiting to buy used games.

IT is dependent on the Publishers and Developers. IF they back a console with exclusive games then I think both MS and Sony would easily Go with making the consoles games lockable. IF the consoles are not locked, then Many games will then come with locked codes to access Online content like there is no but it will be more widespread

.

USED games can NOW be gotten ONLINE easily, and from Target, Best Buy and other places. Renting games form Red Box is easy and cheap, then there is Gamefly. The cost of games will be going up next Gen because the COST of making games is going up. Thus, more people will be getting their games used, rented or Pirated. Which means less money for developers.

@wd40z WOW... Microsoft been ripping people off since the beginning. Over charged for windows, and then called Windows 7 which is actually windows Vita system pact 3.0 a new system because Vita was not selling well, and charged a huge price for it. Microsoft makes many Billions by in large ripping people off. LIVE charging just to play P2P games when Microsoft makes money with advertising on Live to begin with. Then raising the price from $50 dollars to $60 dollars a year. SURE you can get a discount but if it should be FREE then its NOT a discount, but its Microsoft.

@buying1999 LOL. yet even IF they got some money from people that left money in their wallet it is STILL a LOT less than what Microsoft got out of its Gold Live accounts.!!! And its sad that people got screwed by hackers but again Microsoft does this to its own customers, and they thank MS to boot. O.o XD
