If this were true it would be the end for Microsoft in the console business, not only would Game devs suffer (Indie & maybe some big ones) but it would drive all the customers to the competition (Sony, Nintendo)...
This isn't just about used games, what if you wanted to trade a game with a friend or bring a new game over to a friends... Some ppl also sell old games to purchase new titles (or go towards it)..
And whats this nonsense about "If it wasn't for this greedy company we wouldn't have the toys we have.".. you do get that it works both ways, if it wasn't for us (customers) said companies wouldn't be in business anymore.. The Greedy companies will be the demise of themselves.. You can't make profit if you don't sell, if the price is too high your gonna lose most of your customers.. which means you won't be making as much profit, which means you can't invest in new projects, which means you go bankrupt..
If people can't afford games they won't buy consoles.. at the end of the day it's gonna hurt the industry more than anything else.. What they have going for them now is good enough (online passes).. Unless they make "Xbox Live" free then they really don't have much going for them on the next console...
This will only lead to more piracy than their is now..
