Re: Offiical XBox (3) Launch Thread
When you're fighting to establish marketshare, I don't know if that's wise. If I'm EA or Activision or a small developer, is prefer the platform that would protect my software from piracy and second hand markets as a rule. I might even offer extras on that platform to encourage adoption. That's why I say it's more than likely that both are doing similar things to protect developers. If one is doing it, it's likely the other will too.
When people trade in their old games to Gamestop they put that money towards new games. This means that gamers will end up purchasing further games. The big boys like EA will benefit from this because those are the games that people buy first, but the smaller developers will be hurt badly.
