I feel you're not grasping the fact of history. Could this be anti-consumer? Absolutely. Digital games could have come and been just as expensive as before with small sales just as before. But that's not what happened. And if we were in that situation i'd agree 100% with allowing people to sell their digital licenses. But again, that's not where we are at. The two questions there are: 1. Do you want amazing sales? 2. Do you want to be able to sell your digital license? If yes to both, you can't have it both ways, it's one or the other. It's fine if you want #2, as long as you don't expect #1. Pro-consumer can mean different things depending on your values. I understand why people have this "idea" that pro-consumer means allowing consumers to do what they want with their license, i do. But the reality is, that has consequences most people either do not realize, do not want to understand or don't believe will happen. This is why to me it's definitely not pro-consumer, because you give one thing to a select few people who will sell their games, and take away deep discount sales from everyone. That's pro-selfish and pro-shortsightedness. In a perfect world, you could have amazing sales, and be able to sell your digital license, and that world could POSSIBLY get closer of sales of "used digital licenses" has money go back to the developers/publishers guaranteed. But until that option is actually talked about, then it doesn't exist. Edit: And if you do want #2, then i'd really wonder how you don't want #1. #2 is about being able to sell your content and lower your cost of something else. #1 is lowering cost across the board. Either way it seems like we'll continue to go around in circles about our points, so; Only question i have for you: Do you believe that if selling digital games comes out, that major sales will continue to happen? If yes, then we have nothing to discuss, as you fall under the line of people who don't believe the reality of the situation. Sure, a miracle might happen and somehow developers/publishers decide to continue doing steep discounts.........a miracle. If no, then i don't know what's being discussed as you're freely stating you want to give up on having huge sales for the temporary influx of "Oh look at all these games i can sell"
