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.
OH MAN, better **bleep** BOOKMARK this thread so I can have access to it, because THIS STUPID **bleep** FORUM GIVES ME NO WAY TO VIEW IT FROM MY OWN PROFILE.
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)
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!
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...
