[MCV] More hints at next gen consoles blocking used games - Page 4

post #31 of 37

Read that article. If it was as simple as everyone makes it out to be, he would not have had to check with his PR specialist. The games won't be blocked, but I am guessing that there is something else that they are not sharing. They would have been better keeping their mouth shut like Microsoft has than to handle it like that. Aslo the way he said it in the article, if that is a direct quote, is very rude.

Edit : Oh and 5entinel, I think you are a ninja! Just quietly pop in and edit. I am on to you ph34r2.gif lol.

I hardly see why someone who doesn't like the fact that hey can't re-sell their games would jump to an entirely new platform altogether that was already operating under no re-sell conditions, just for mods.

It may be the case with those you've talked to, but I highly doubt the rest are the same.

I explain to them that these things are done by regular people and that it is hit and miss as far as what games get mods and how many, I forgot to add [...in my sleepily typed, error ridden post] that I also showed them Nerhim and Andoran, I showed them a few of the better free games that frickfrock filled us in on here at OCN. [I'm able to do all this because I bring my laptop to work]. And it is not just mods, it is price too. People like the prices I show them on Steam sales, ...everyday sales, weekend sale, midweek madness sales, pre-order sales, summer sales, Halloween sales, Autumn sales, Holiday sales. [...did I miss any?]

I really think a crash of the game industry, or at least a significant contraction of the console market can come from this move. Parents are going to pass on the PS4 and 720 a lot. Parents with kids 13-14 and under are going to move to the Wii U or just keep their 360s/PS3s and tablets for the kid games. If 15-17 year olds want the PS4/720 and the games for them, they'll be getting a part time job. Fewer games are going to be bought by those [..or for those] that possess the systems as the overall budget for games is not going to magically increase, in fact purchasers are going to be more selective when every purchase is forever. Then factor in an additional PC influx [whatever it will be] and you see the market for the PS4 and 720 and the games on them will be facing pressure from all sides at a time when they are taking a very unpopular move. Sony and Msoft, wanting 100% of the pie, will find they have a much smaller pie. For one, maybe even both, this may be their last console.

God bless Steam (salutes)

I'd imagine this will hurt game stores like Game Stop rolleyes.gif

If M$ really blocks used game sales. then it's Game Over for them! Sony's PS4 is on the right track to become insanely popular just like PS2, as long as the launch price is not more the $399-449!

Microsoft won't do this... since Sony has already announced they will not be doing this.... MS would be making a huge mistake. they arn't that dumb.
