[Eurogamer] DiRT 3 gets Online Pass - Page 4

post #31 of 36
To be honest, all of you people that were going to buy it used and are now claiming that you're not, it doesn't hurt the developer one bit. They were never going to see any of your money anyway... You're the one restricting yourself by not purchasing the game at all.

Frankly, I don't mind this online pass system. It unlocks some content and gives you access to play online. While I do agree that it's kind of a pain in the ass for everyone that buys their games used, a developer can't afford to support used purchases whenever it is costing them such a loss of profit.

I personally dislike second hand games. I want an unopened box. Or if I get it digital... I can always wait for a sale or general price drop. I mean come on... ARMA 2: Combined Operations is like what... $30 new in a box? You just have to wait for the big rush of buying to end. Then BAM! Price drops.

Just to spite them I won't buy a new copy. I'm tired of devs and publishers whining and QQing about used game sales. They got their chance when the game sold new, there's no reason to screw over the rest of their customer base in this manner.

Why should they care about the rest of the "customer base" whenever that section of customers does not give any support to the company? Sure, you're buying the game... But not from them, and they don't see any profit from your second hand purchase. I remember recently reading an article that stated used game sales are hurting developers more than piracy.
