i'm sorry if i offend anyone but i don't think i will change in my heart on how i view ppl that buy 2nd hand...because i attribute these ppl that caused the current DLC/season pass scourge that plagued the gaming industry now........you buy 2nd hand, you are not giving the developers/publisher money (but the 2nd hand shop/dealer) and the devs/publishers had to come up with sh!tty method to earn their profit. And then the ones that paid full price to the devs because they wanted to support them like me becomes a carrothead.
And then the same group of ppl that don't buy games full price/1st hand complained about DLC/free to play...when they are the ones that caused it. The worst are those that did the 'gamesharing' thing in the PS3 days....and that forced sony to restrict digital games to only playable on 2 systems at any time now. Thanks, guys for that!
That aside, in another news...Sony just announced that the PS4 has sold through 30.2 million units worldwide. #ps4masterrace
discount coupon is different from 2nd hand. The developer/publisher will still earn their keep if you are using discount coupon as the difference are subsidized by whatever store/discount coupon is from...
2nd hand though..is different. One copy of a game bought, re-sold, bought re-sold, bough re-sold........3 people played the game. But the developer only get paid for 1 copy only.
if all you want is cheap and good and totally don't care about the developers' survival at all...then i rest my case. But then don't complain if AAA full games extinct in the future and all replaced by Free-to-play games....which seems to be where we are heading, Thanks for that!
