They're getting the initial sales on those 2. The others are just lost sales. The family plan is 9 lost sales per 1 sale.
1 game sale vs 2 game sales. I know which one publishers would much prefer.
Why should the publisher get ANY extra compensation on second hand sales? They're not in the second hand sales business. That's nothing but pure greed.
Look at Call of Duty. That game brings in BILLIONS of dollars.. you're telling me that publishers should then be able to get MORE on top of that for private sales? Bull.
I just used 2 games as an example. I can buy 1 game,and each friend buys 1 game,and we swap . same thing,but digital more convenient. the publishers get the exact same amount of cash both methods, physical discs, or digital sharing. 1 copy of call of duty can be shared between 10 people with physical discs.
if we use your logic, why would publishers want to allow physical discs, after all, one copy can be shared with an unlimited amount of people, there is no cap. 1 game can be shared between 100 people.
