As a pc gamer I haven't been concerned with used games in many years. Not because I wouldn't buy used games, but because they just don't ****ing exist. I can however see this as a growing problem. It's pure greed by the publishers and that's all.
When there are quite a few quality games out or coming out that are free (tribes ascend, firefall, and dust 514 just to new a few) it's amazing that developers and publishers think people will always allow themselves to be nickle and dimed to death. Granted two of those games are pc exclusives, but the point still stands.
Edit: holy ****, typos

All three of those are microtrans supported Free to Play >.> Those are the very definition of nickel and diming. Free to Play only exists because a sizable amount of the playerbase doesn't, in fact, mind being nickel and dimed.

Not really. You can play Tribes Ascend competitively without spend a penny. Firefall doesn't have a cash shop, but even if it did (or will?) you can play just fine without spending any money. But I'll admit I don't know much about the Dust 514 game so you may have a point there.

The point is, you can play without paying a dime, but the games' continuing support is funded by the people who *do* pay. Those who agree with the nickle and dime a la carte method are allowing you to play for free. Also, Firefall will be supported by microtrans just like the others.

The point still stands. You don't have to pay money to play the game if you don't want to and still have access to the entire game. If others choose to spend money on the game is beside the point.
