Games The rumour mill for the next generation of video game consoles has been churning out some juicy stuff these past few months. While Nintendo has laid most of its cards out on the table, Microsoft and Sony have remained tight-lipped, probably because their consoles are still seeing increased sales. So, we have to rely on rumours, and those rumours have one thing in common: Microsoft and Sony want to eliminate the used games market.

Any attempts to kill second hand gaming are going to meet fierce resistance, and mass piracy.


LOL, you're kidding right? One thing about gamers is that they will scream, bitch, cry, and moan, but then they'll be there on launch day for the latest military shooter of the month, to take it up the ass, just like they always do. Why? Because gamers are lamers. You guys should carry a jar of Vaseline when you go to pick up your pre-ordered copy of Call of Duty 27. Then, maybe the pounding won't hurt so bad.

You mention $60 for new games, but more like $90 when you factor in all the DLC involved. Hell, some of these publishers aren't even hiding it anymore and just putting the DLC right on the disc (locked, of course). And why shouldn't they? I mean, if you're gonna f**k somebody, might as well be honest about it, right?

As for me, between Sony removing features of the PS3 and MS charging $60 to play online while showing ads on the dashboard, I sold all of my consoles, so I'm out. This generation was my last. The games are pretty horrible anyway now days.
