Re: General Gaming Discussion
Well technically, selling used videogames is illegal since the law considers the purchase of a video game as purchasing a license from the publisher. It is therefore illegal to sell that license. This is why there was some fear that used game sales could be banned and stores like Gamestop would be screwed.
But then again, publishers have gone a different route to combat used sales. All PS3 games going forward will have online passes and most games have on-disc locked features that can be unlocked by a one time code.
