Instead these companies would rather screw over the customers with online codes so that when my Xbox or PS3 craps out, I cant play the game I paid full price for online, unless of course I pay the developer more cash.
I cant tell you the amount of games I've passed on because of codes. I'd gladly have paid for the new game, but the codes are just horrible. (Every EA published game, except Mass Effect 3. Which I wish I skipped.)
Not just first party, second and third too.
But trust me, most of the used Wii/DS/3DS games I've bought still had the Club Nintendo codes. Most people don't use it or know about it.
Also, you're making incorrect statements regarding online codes and profile transferring.
