The other thing in all this, of course, is that game prices will increase with the release of a new system. If prices went down on the understanding that secondhand games would no longer be available then there might be something worthwhile in this idea. But they won't do that.
More than anything else, this is the information I'm waiting on.
IF PS4/XBone game prices decrease as a result of eliminating the second-hand games market and putting a big dent in piracy and games go on sale a lot more than they do now (like Steam), then this is cool with me. If Microsoft and Sony are planning on having more or less the same game pricing as the 360/PS3 did with all these additional restrictions in place, they can go fuck themselves and I'm proceeding to beef up my PC.
