Electronic Arts Aggrivated With Used Video Games
Electronic Arts (EA) has been annoyed with the used video game market for quite some time, because when a used game is sold, they don’t get any money for it.
So they have launched a new plan to combat this issue. For the upcoming Dragon Age game, EA will offer an exclusive pack for new copies of the game. If you buy it used, this pack will cost $15 on the Marketplace to download.
I don’t generally buy used games that often because their condition is generally pretty awful (especially at Gamestop/EB Games). This plan does not bother me at all but it may annoy some who like getting used games for a discount. We shall have to see how this effects the economy and the video game community in the near future. [Source]
