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.

The new game market became an (almost entirely) rich kid phenomena a long time ago. I find it rather depressing to witness the stratification of young people today by socio-economic class b/c of the games they can afford to play. This turn of events will serve to make that stratification substantially more severe.
