[CVG] Xbox 720 pre-owned games block 'would be fantastic,' says dev - Page 6

post #51 of 61
how about this. game devs do get money from second hand games. i bought lost planet on the xbox second hand. i liked it so much i bought lost planet 2 on release day. i would not have bought it had i not got the first game second hand. this is also true for gta games, forza and fable. so to claim that that they get no money from second hand games it rubbish. i know they don't get any money from the sale but they get buyers of there follow up games which they other wise wouldn't have. andi am sure i am not the only one who has done this.

i hope that makes sense

actually when you "buy" games movies or even music, you are buying the privilege to enjoy it for yourself, you dont actually "own" anything, just the permission from the publisher to enjoy it, something along those lines

Which a load of bull in my opinion.

I can understand why they would want to do this, and it would only really be like steam.. BUT the general public will HATE the idea. What will happen if you want to rent a game? It will kill off small shops etc as big companies like Blockbuster (UK) could organise temp codes etc but the smaller ones would be dead.

What if you dont like the game? Your stuck with it? What if you want to take Fifa to a mates house? Oh you can't unless the whole console comes with it. They are our games we should be able to do with them as we please!

At least with steam I can have my games saved to an external hard drive and play them on any PC with an internet connection.
What Console?

i always thought that when i buy a game, i am buying a copy of it, i "own" a copy of it. just like buying dvd's and blurays

This in my opinion is dishonest business that limits personal consumer freedom and should not be tolerated.

Friends don't let friends play yearly rehashed sports games.

All jokes aside though, to my understanding the games will just be tied to your account, not your hardware. So if you want to play it at someone's house who doesn't have the game (though there are really only two types of people who when it comes those games: those who buy them regardless, and those who won't play them period), you'll just have to use your account on their console to play it. Very much like the way Steam handles things in that respect.

I wouldn't buy the next system if they blocked used games or anything of the sort.

I see people whining but its the same as steam at the moment. you pay 60 for a game you can not resell or trade. If the PC community accepts it the console community should as well.

We accept it because were just grateful to be getting to play on our expensive hardware!
