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.

PC games too!

The last two PC games I bought (FIFA 12 and F1 2011) would not even install without signing up to, downloading and installing some Steam like service even though I bought them in DVD format and not trying to circumvent any anti-piracy measures.

Fairly sure this would not only (at best) hinder a used sale of these copies but potentially stop me installing or playing these in years to come when support for these titles is finished.

To be honest these games are't classics but I'm seriously concerned that unlike all the games I've bought during my life, I won't be able to return to games like these when I'm really old and even more nostalgic.
