Where's the theft?

When you purchase a used game EA still gets its cut; in effect, it's already getting two bites at the apple... this is a third bite; an unnecessary charge they're asserting only because they can.

Not always. Private sales and the majority of stores do not pass any payment onwards.


It's the same as if you buy a second hand car. No profit is passed back on to the car manufacturer.


At any rate, Evil Arts can bite it.

See, this is one of those reasons why i don't buy there games. And anyway, by the time you buy one of those games from the pre-owned store, its probably so old that no one plays it online anymore.

Another big scam from EA to add to list, which, as we all know, is very long.

Not bothered about DRM free games as i buy mine through Steam. Have had no major issues with them, and at least you can back the game up and instal them as many times as you wish.

If i buy a second hand game from a pre-owned store, its probably because i wanted to play it all them years ago and never got round to buying it then.

they can push all they want, but pc gfx card, cpu, mb manufacturers will not let it happen. console hardware market is non-existent comparing to pc.
