    So how would they make that work though? I mean, they would need to use keys like on PC games.

    It's highly likely that's the path they would take

    I will probably mean the first time you put a game in your console you will either activate it online and in so doing link it to you Live or PSN accounts or enter a Online pass code and so link it to your account.

    I don't think that this upsets me as much as it would have a year or two ago. Since acquiring a cheque card, I have been less inclined to buy PC games from bricks and mortor stores, preferring GoG, STEAM, and GG, or the occasional indie bundle.

    I find that my PSN+ membership gives me good value too, and as the broadband situation in South Africa improves [I hope], it may become more practical to purchase digital editions of games. I cannot speak for XBox Live, as my XBox has not received much attention lately.
    Happiness cannot be bought. It is earned by the relationships we have with our fellow creatures rather than measured by the goods that possess us.

    I buy preplayed simply because it's cheaper, same some computer hardware, same with cars, same with books, etc. Why should games be any different??
