The used game market wont dry up, considering the 3000 is still going to be selling, plus I bet we WILL se a price drop shortly after the release of the psp go, just like the lite droped by $30 after the dsi was released.
The DS Lite has been 129.99 since its launch in 2006.
I'm sure sony will find a way to let you convert your had disks over to the go, Sony dse a pretty good job of supporting its fan base.
Doubt it, in the video he kept talking about a digital and download strategy. Sony is going to try to ride both trains at first. If anything its the publishers who will make the push to go full download and no UMDs because of cost. Best case Sony says OK any game you have you can get the DL for 5 bucks, but how do you prove what games you own?
I will never support download games. Dont care how good the games are. Refuse to encourage the profiteer racketing publishers are promoting. They price fix the games by eliminating the used market and making it appear the game is in high demand by keeping the games priced high and expensive. And of course they can get away with this considering they control the point of distribution and you can't get it anywhere else.
It works for Apple, Steam, XBLA, and PSN. All have games go on sales all the time, and you cant "hide" sales if something isnt selling it just not selling. So you have Publisher A who wants to sell a game at 29.99, but no one buys it they are just going to keep it at that price and not cut it? Thing is this is the future just like with music, movies, Video Games are all going online distrbution.
