That's a good point, although the fact that console online distribution is very limited kind of illustrates my point. Console have hard drives and they'll need internet connections to get this "extra" content. So why rework the disc format when online distribution is (probably) the future -and just so happens to limit second hand sales anyway. The advantage is to the publishers in that they can effectively, if only partially, sell the game as a service (and charge per use) rather than as a product --but it's hardly a plan with longevity.
