    used games kind of have same effect as piracy as the developer does not make money of them so it does the same kind of thing you still have to pay for the game its just the developer does not get your money. makes me think why used games are legal and piracys not. with piracy you get game for free when the games not ment to be free with used games you have to pay but you pay less then the proper price that the games ment to be.

    Because you have to buy used games and you don't have to buy pirated games? How in the world would used games be illegal when you paid for them?

    Sir, are you smoking something? The man payed the devs for the green stuff. He used it and he sold it off because he was done with it.

    Ok, and that's illegal? Where in that process is anything illegal or even questionable occurring? Should the developer be able to restrict what you do with your games? Whether or not the developer gets money doesn't determine its legality.

    Piracy = I have this. I make a copy of this. I share it I still have it.
    Reselling = I have this. I don't want it anymore. I sell it. I don't have it

    It's a used game.
    That means that the game already has been bought once so the developer already got it's tiny share from it.

    Ask yourself the same question yet replace game with car.
    You're basically saying that everyone is forced to purchase a new car for ~15 grand so that the company gets a percentage.
    Not everyone can afford 15 grand.


    They didn't

    een if you have to pay for used games and not to pirate them it still has the same effect and you could call piarcy as not stealing because a person who got the game its theirs and they copyed it so you could play it

    Except in piracy, you aren't playing the person who uploaded the game's copy, you're playing an illicit copy of that game which neither you nor anyone else was authorized to make. Reselling is actually giving your game to someone else; they are playing your actual game that you paid for. It's not at all the same.
