You know how most games these days have a "Downloadable Content" menu?
If you buy a used copy of Mass Effect 2 then you have to pay to access
the menu called "Downloadable Content". This is not a fee for the
content itself, it's a fee just to enter the menu. A cover charge if
you will. Then you still have to pay for the content you find inside.
And I really don't see the issue with this at all. IF one buys the
game used, then EA, MS, Sony, etc don't make money on the licenses.
Neither does Ford or Toyota when a used car is sold privately. Neither
does an author when a book is sold. Etc.
That's a very poor analogy as most people who sell their cars used are going to buy another car for themselves. I am not going to sell my games used to just go out and buy the same game again retail.
