These trailers are really driving up my pants budget.

In other words, they actually listen to consumers, care about what they have to say, and use basic reason. Start taking notes, MS.

@MrMan2000 Like someone else said, the idea of ownership is changing in the minds of these companies, not in the minds of everyday people. That Apple and Amazon are doing this does not constitute a justification.

People should be sacred when they hear things like this, they should be really ****ing scared. Microsoft is trying to make it so that they own the things that you the consumer pay for, so they're making money from you all the while never really giving you anything of your own in return. The fact that people can be so passive about this scares the hell out of me.

@Zevvion @theone86 @mike300zxt And so what? Just because they see it as an issue doesn't mean it should be. Tell my WHY they SHOULD get a portion of the profits.

@Zevvion @theone86 It's going to kill the used games market, and as I said it's been proven that used games boost new games sales. I'm glad MS is going ahead with this, it is going to kill their system.

@Zevvion @theone86 @mike300zxt And are games on Steam sixty bucks? No, they're priced like all other PC games, in other words reasonably. E-books sell for less, digital music sells for less, and you also have to consider there are regular sales, free products, and items get discounted when they're no longer new. If MS wants to start selling lesser-known games for thirty bucks then fine, but I don't see that happening any time soon.

The disc DOES change things as you are getting a physical product which you can sell to other people. That physical product is part of the cost you pay. Like I said, why isn't the same standard applied to movies? It's a digital product according to you, so the studios should receive a cut of the profit. You are simply wrong on this, pack it in.

@Zevvion The current used games market is not causing any company to go under. If anything, it has been concretely shown that used games boost new games sales.

"It's not an issue for me anyway, I never buy used games."

I think this explains a lot.

@Zevvion @mike300zxt Because it's a physical product and you're talking digital products. For most of those the price is far lower because you're not paying for manufacturing, shipping, storage, and retail costs.

@Zevvion @mike300zxt Why isn't it the same? It's the same for movies, I can buy those second-hand and the production studio doesn't get an extra cut, why is it different for video games?
