Comment: Used games market supports high game prices (Score 2, Insightful) 664

Games that you can't resell are worth less. How could anyone think this will lead to more revenue for publishers? People won't be willing to pay as high of prices for new games as they do today if there is no resale value. For example, the market for used cars supports high new car prices. You're less hesitant to spend $30k on a new car if you can sell the car after a few years and recoup some of your investment.

The decision doesn't have to be logical; it was unanimous.
