#9590089, By Shikasama Have 2nd hand game sales really grown to become a genuine problem?

    All I can do is take my own example. I spend a significant portion of my disposable income on games, sometimes I buy new games, sometimes I buy used games. Sometimes trading in a game lets me take a punt on something I'm not that bothered about, sometimes buying a second hand game gets me interested in an entire franchise so I'll pre-order the sequel. I can point to a few franchises off the top of my head that have benefited from this (Splinter Cell, Sonic) just like my piracy days (Football Manager, Civ).

    I'm extremely offended at the notion that I'm somehow doing something wrong or not supporting the industry when I dip into the used pile, considering the insane amount of money I spaff into it elsewhere.
