Yup I agree, and now they want to ruin the used game market. I think it's BS IMO.

I guess it's just a matter of opinion. They have good reason to attack the used game market.

I still have a perfectly good NES on standby. I'm already so far behind on PS3 games anyways. Between work and my personal life I don't have time for games any more. A friend of mine let me barrow Skyrum a few weeks ago I have yet to stick it in the PS3.

Video games as a whole have declined greatly in recent years. It's really a lot like other media forms out there (music, video, etc.). A lot of over hyped crap coming from a few huge corporations that isn't good, and is filled with limiting features keeping you from enjoying your product after a short while...at least music seems to be slowly coming back, in that you don't see a whole lot of DRM filled CD's and downloads any more...but it's still very much there in many cases.

PC gaming is going down as well. Still similar restrictions on how many times you can install a game and blah blah blah. Obviously not as bad as consoles, but the real issue is game quality anyways. Not a whole lot of original ideas coming out, and the larger names in the industry are swallowing up studios fast. Electronic Arts has done just about everything it can to ruin gaming...from releasing awful games to mandating you use their stupid downloader to ruining once good studios that made good games.

I just don't see the light at the other end of the tunnel in this case. I think things will get worse before they get better, much like with the music industry. It'll take some big moves by little people to get things to change, like how many bands are now releasing albums sans big name record deal (and telling the RIAA where to stick it). I'm hoping some independent studios will keep releasing quality games, I'll gladly support them as long as they don't convert to the dark side.

Case in point for me -> I REALLY want to play Mass Effect 3...looks like a truly awesome game, but freakin' EA mandates you have Origin installed to play it...and Origin is a joke that will never see the light of day on any of my machines...NOT buying that game as long as EA wants to pull shenanigans like that.

Looks like it's really going to happen, Sony Japan filed a patent that allows the system to read an ID on the game disc that tracks its usage. Even if the system isn't connected to the internet.

Patent info here

Once the new tomb raider comes out, and I can buy a 360. So I can for once play fornza ill be happy for years to come. It took me almost 10 years to buy my first ps3. I'm in no hurry to get the 4 I'm sure the games will be more than 60 as well.

Forbes disagrees with you. It's a $67 Billion a year business that will grow to $82 Billion by 2017.
