Today Sony could bring backwards compatibility, gamers are quick on their toes, and used game retailers could be in trouble.

    A suit like that is …
    A suit like that is not going to go anywhere. People have tried and failed to do so for numerous types of items, and making used sales of ANYTHING illegal is not going to happen. Period. The End.

    The VG industry is just the new thing on the block and they’re bummed that they’re not making as much money as they could. This is happened to every other type of media, and used sales of those are still alive and well. They’re not going anywhere.

    If the developers …
    If the developers feel cheated by having consumers sell off their games to each other then they’ll just have to re-release their stuff. All of it. Sometimes there just isn’t an alternative to buying things second-hand.

    How else are you supposed to get a hold of a copy of Rockman and Forte for Super Famicom? Its pretty difficult to find in stores.

    @xRocketzFighterx …
    @xRocketzFighterx when gamestation got sold to game, game stopped them selling retro in favour of selling iupod merchandise….faaantastic. you can still find retro shops such as cex and some independent ones, but other than that the main chain franchises dont sell retro,. some gamestations sell the last of their stock, some burnt the last of their stock, not to mention ported games hardly count as retro, sure theyre the old games repackaged onto a newer system but not as cool as the originals

    Your …

    @punkmario06
    Your wrong UK shops still sell retro games only Gamestation or other game shops, you live in the UK and you can’t see any retro games in any gameshop in the UK for 4 years are you blind.

    Its only Game that doesn’t sell retro games the oldest games they sell is re-packaged PC games made in the 90’s like the tombraider collection and PS2 games.

    Retro games have been ported onto gameboy advance, gamecube, PS2, xbox 360, PS3 and PC steam so my so called “point” is not invalid

    @xRocketzFighterx …
    @xRocketzFighterx Xbox arcade, wii ware, Psn store. will solve that problem. adn there still would be people selling them online most likely. i myself hope it doesnt happen, i like buying my games new, but there are some games where im like im not sure if id like it so i buy it used and if a game suck real bad ill sell it back.
    The only good thing that could come out of it is people will stop paying tons of people to wait in line for new consoles than sell them to real gamers for 3x teh price.

    @punkmario06
    Well …

    @punkmario06
    Well if gameshops in both USA and UK didn’t let people buy preowned games then alot of people who useuraly search in game stores both USA and United Kingdom for rare retro games like super mario RPG, Old school Square Soft Games, Goldeneye 007, Banjo n kazooie, Jet set radio, donkey kong games, fear effect etc etc people are gonna be really ticked off they can’t buy them anymore especialy in this 7th generation of gameing all the new games are takeing over the retro shelves.

    @scootsie119 Supply and demand. If people are willing to pay 10-20 times the price, people will sell them at 10-20 times the price. Welcome to America.

    so basically sony …
    so basically sony wants to release an external console that you can connect to your new console so that you can play the games from your old console (which you actually own but it died after a couple of years)

    Uniracers was great, don’t forget to attempt to put “sonic” as your name and see what happens.
