* Death of used games?

Personal Stuff/Random News
Over at PA, Ben Kuchera cheers the death of the used games market.

Ben Kuchera is an idiot, of course. Beyond the fact that pricing dynamics won't work the way he claims, the used market is already a pricing factor for most buyers and tying these games to an Xbox Live account means when MS inevitably shuts down the Xbox Live servers for that generation (just as they did for the original Xbox, just as they will do in 3-4 years for the Xbox 360) all of those games become inoperable. Dead. You didn't purchase at all, all you did was rent and the entire generation of those games will be dead and unplayable to history.
