Maybe the game publishers should start including a netflix style envelope with their games. When you're done with the game, send the disc back for a $15-20 discount on a new title. The discount would need to be more than the gamestops are willing to pay to compensate for the lack of instant gratification you get from trading games in at gamestop and for the fact that you'd be limited to selecting a game from the publisher's catalog. However, I do think that the company would win in the long run by getting used copies of their games off the shelves.

You're exactly right. Programming for the N64 was nearly impossible. No independent developers could match Super Mario 64 and they quickly fell away from Nintendo and turned to Sony's Playstation. If you look at the history, the Super Nintendo's main competition was the Sega Genesis. With the introduction of the N64, Nintendo should have owned that generation with no new Sega on the market. Instead, Nintendo made an impossible to program for system and Sony pounced. As a nintendo turned xbox 360 fanboy, I'm loving the PS3's failure.

I thought the Little Big Planet people said that little big planet would be impossible on the Xbox 360 because it was technologically inferior? And the PSP isn't? At this point, Sony deserves the whooping they're getting from Nintendo and to a lesser extent Microsoft. Innovate or die, Sony.
