Question No more used games?

I keep hearing rumors that used video games are about to be a thing of the past. I heard they're going to make it so you have to purchase games through the console so there's physically no way used games would be possible.
This is the only article I really found about it and it's not very helpful.

This is just dumb if it is true. Games are so fucking expensive, a lot of people I know only buy them used because of it.

They are definitely moving in that direction, yeah. Thing is older games will still get cheaper. I don't think it's as big a deal.

I doubt it'll be very much. I mean older games now that are new aren't really that much cheaper.

I buy old games at Wal-mart for like 20 bucks all the time.

Maybe I'm wrong. I know sometimes they don't go down very much because I hear friends bitch about buying a game several years old and it's still over $40

they are already doing some games that you cannot enjoy online content with out the game, like ME3 and Saints Row 3 both came with online codes when I bought them that they needed to access online capable

I used to be pretty upset about the industry moving in this direction. But since I started exclusively using steam for my games. I almost never pay more than $10 for a game, and often my games are $5 or less.

Steam really revolutionised game distribution and unless the consoles fully embrace it or something similar, they will be left behind.

Sure, it means I don't get games the day they get out, but they are almost always cheaper than I would have ever found them used at gamestop or something comparable.

You can already get steam on the PS3, and rumor has it that valve and apple are teaming up for a console box that uses steam.

If Steam worked with more consoles that would be pretty awesome. I don't think I knew it existed. If they go in that direction I don't think it's as big of a deal if the prices are kept low like that.

Yea, what's killing me is that game companies are charging the same $60 through their own digital stores & steam, as well as amazon, as they are for a physical copy -- even though it's dramatically more expensive (and they get less of a %) by going with a physical copy.

Honestly, unless the game companies wake the hell up and realize that $60 for a game that will most likely garner 12-25 hours of gameplay (with the rare exception of course) is just not worth it, especially in this economy. Even moreso, as we move even closer to a digital only distribution system - daily.
