PS4 Used Game Fees?

44 replies 844 views Edited May 22, 2013

Given how sony refuses to give a straight answer regarding the current state of playing used games, I can't shake the feeling that we are going to be charged to play used games, like the other console is doing.  It seems like its going to be an industry standard.

 

The only thing that has been said is "It CAN play used games, but we will have more info regarding this later in the year"  IF IT CAN PLAY USED GAMES, THEN WHAT ELSE IS THERE FOR YOU TO ADD?   THE ONLY POSSIBLE THING YOU CAN ADD TO THIS IS "It can play used games, BUT you must pay a fee, as the new industry standard."  CONSOLE GAMING WILL BE DEAD TO ME, CONSOLES, IN GENERAL, ARE **bleep** OVER EVERYONE.  GAMES ARE TOO **bleep** EXPENSIVE.

 

SONY, IF YOU FORCE IS TO PAY FEES FOR USED GAMES, I WILL ABANDON CONSOLE GAMING FOR PC GAMING. 

 

Also, all I wanted to do was simply view what posts I had made, or at the very least, view my own topics I created.  My profile stats indicate all the threads I had made, all the posts I had made, BUT GIVES ME TO WAY TO ACTUALLY LOOK AT ANYTHING, LIKE A NORMAL **bleep** FORUM WOULD.

 

RAGE.

Here is a thread that will explain how to access all your old threads on the forums, until they fix the forums here. (The forums have only been broken for 2 weeks):smileysad:

Im not even going to read the OP. Here is my view omn this topic. Once you buy an original copy of a game you activate it and you would berewarded with a free online pass. Then you want to return it. The next person to buy that copy would have to pay for a new pass to activate it. Either way the cheap who buys a pre-owned will save atleast $10 - $20 .

^ Something like that.

I was just looking at the PS4 release titles over at Amazon, and the price points for new releases are all $99! That would be a nightmare-you could buy a whole console for the price of a few games. I hope it doesn't become like printers and printer ink, the biggest tech rip off in the universe, lol.

If the PS4 games are all $99 from the get-go, we'd better be able to buy used ones without getting gouged.

They won't be, that's a 'holding price' until Sony announces the actual price-point, which will likely be somewhat similar to today's PS3 games, I'd expect them to be the same as now at $59.99 or possibly $69.99, but they won't be $99.99, trust me!

Omg, thank you! I just about died when I saw that! :smileyvery-happy:

New games have been fifty bucks or so since I started playing computer games back in the 90s, (Sierra, et al.) I was prepared to be outraged, hee hee.

I can honestly say ms will be sued by rental companies for putting them out of business.. i'm sure sony will follow ms with thier stupidity.

All they will do is hurt the industry that is on shaky ground as it is now....

I bet rental companies make up half if not more in game sales, because they buy thousands for each state...

Those companies are like Dollar General to WallMart, even if they did sue, they wouldnt stand a chance.
