It's not awesome at all

I don't like the idea of game developers or console makers trying to block the used game market. I don't think they have any business telling me that I can or can't sell my video games if I want. Rasmus Hojengaard, Crytek's director of creative development recently gave an interview where he said it would be awesome if console makers to block the used game market.

"The worst thing that can happen is they make something that's very complex for developers, regardless of how awesome it might theoretically be," he said. "So getting hardware that allows you to quickly get prototypes up and running, and any kind of scalability they can offer will be great as well, as long as everyone has that scalability and not just a select few."

"From a business perspective that [blocking used games] would be absolutely awesome. It's weird that [second-hand] is still allowed because it doesn't work like that in any other software industries, so it would be great if they could somehow fix that issue as well."
