    A different view on Sony's "anti-used-games" technology...

    Today's news reminds me of the good old days of printer dongles. Fer ya youngsters at one point some software companies tried to lock software down by having you plug a dongle into your printer point that would recognize "a code" and allow the software to run. Eventually customer's stop buying their software and they relented their strategies. Since the new consoles offer no significant technology improvements like a 128 or 256bit CPU rather both are AMDx64, developers will continue to focus their software for the existing install base and the price for the older consoles, even the used ones will remain elevated. "Telling your customers it's our way or the highway" never works out in the long run..

    Sentiment: Hold
