:lol: Right. Because when publishers eliminate the only legitimate source of price competition for their titles, they will become benevolent toward their customers and cut the price out of... good-naturedness? Rather than, you know, jacking up the rates for Halo XVIII through the roof, because they know that customers would sell a kidney to play Master Chef again?
What I see happening is that very few people actually buy new games and most only buy the 'gold edition' or one or two year old version of games.
After all, I already do this with Steam and on my PS2 for digital only games.
