Comment What about person to person sales? (Score 1) 379

I see Gamestop and other retailers will have access to the MS database for authorization of keys for games but what about person to person? What happens if I purchased it second hand off of Ebay/Amazon/Craigslist and they didn't deauthorize the game from their account before selling. Am I to pay a small fee on top of the purchase of the game to be legit, file a dispute with Ebay/Amazon? This will just add more cost on to them and I hope they push back. If the publishers want more money how about you quit spending $10+ million on making a game and charging $60 for the privilege to sit and wait for patches to be downloaded and installed before we can play because you rushed it out to market to fast. How about you actually make a complete game that doesn't require spending $X more for DLC that should've included in the first place. Its stunts like this that make me long for the days of cartridges.

We seen how well rolling releases worked for gentoo. Sounds to me you want service pack updates similar to windows and OSX. Which I'm fine with but where do you draw the line on which applications get updated to their newer versions? Are just talking about applications like Firefox, Open Office? What about applications like RhythmBox that are tied to their DE. Hell do we push the latest DE(GNOME/KDE) updates out like you want for Firefox?

The trouble with a lot of self-made men is that they worship their creator.
