Would you play games if you couldn't play used games?
There is a rumor going around that the next Xbox will have hardware or software that will keep it from playing any kind of used game.
Would you still invest in a new console if you where forced to play only new games?
I know PC gamers are going to say they have been doing this forever on PC. While that may be true PC also has tens of thousands of free or flash based games to play where as console gamers do not.
I am a console collector with well over 22 gaming systems not counting duplicates for some systems. I don't think that I would invest in any new system that required me to purchase only new games. I think that it would keep the prices of games much higher and wouldn't give Developers/Publishers a reason to lower the prices as much as they currently do.
