PS4 not playing Used Games, and I am OK' with it.

4 replies 124 views Edited Feb 24, 2013

So far it has yet to be OFFICIALLY announced that the PS4 will not play Used Games.  If that is the case and it comes down to the PS4 not playing used PS4 games I am OK with it.  Here is why, and what factors would make it OK with me.

 

Reason Why:

 

1.  Developers will start earning more money for there games.  When you buy a game second hand (friend to friend, or eBay) the developers don't see another dime for that game.

 

2.  With Developers getting more sales (people having to buy new games, even old new games), then maybe just maybe the cost of games might drop.  Hoping a price tag of $49.99 (but won't hold my breath)

 

Factors that is a must:

 

1.  Every PS4 game must have a 1hr Time Trial to be able to download free from PSN (aside from the normal demos we see).

 

2.  Online Rentals: EVERY PS4 Game must be able to be rented from the PSN.  1Day Rental $2.00, 2Day Rental $4, 5Day Rental $7.00

 

The rental feature would be a BIG must for me.  No one wants to shell out $59.99 for a game that you can't even try out.  Due to Game Rentals won't be available.  Being able to rent games online would be cool in every aspect.  No more calling up the video store seeing if they have a game in (when mine only has 1 copy per game).  The rentals would have to be priced fair, I think the price I listed above is fair enough.

 

If for some feakish reason PS4 Games start out at $69.99 ($10 more than what we are paying for new games now) I won't be buying a PS4 anytime soon.

It would be nice if everyone stopped buying used. Maybe then developers could take more risks with their games instead of making sequal after sequal after sequal.

Oh:smileysurprised: , well that is good news.  I don't really read IGN news.  My opinion they are Sony haters and Xbox lovers.

I only go to IGN for news. I don't read their reviews or watch any of their shows. I can't stand them most of the times. They love other consoles and that's completely fine, but stop posting other consoles news on the PS3 section of the website! gamespot is worse though. Which is why I don't visit that site anymore.

 

Anyway, nice sig :smileyhappy:
