Tell GR: How Should Next-Gen Consoles Handle Used Games?

Posted on Tuesday, May 28 @ 16:00:00 Eastern by Alex_Osborn


The next generation of gaming is right around the corner, and with it comes all sorts of nasty changes, the nastiest of which being new forms of digital rights management.

PC gamers have had to deal with this for quite some time now, but anti-used game policies haven't affected consoles gamers all that much. Sure we've had to deal with online passes and the like, but nothing on the order of what Microsoft plans to do with the Xbox One

The question now is whether or not Sony will follow suit. The company has said that the console will support a used game market, but offered little details beyond that. Is it wise for the PlayStation manufacturer to adopt a similar strategy with the PS4? I'm sure gamers won't like it, but is it worth the sacrifice to please publishers?

Isn't all of this just inevitable as we move forward, drawing ever closer to a digital-only future? So many questions, so few answers. Hopefully we'll get some clarity come E3, and hopefully it's not all disappointment.
