I hope this is true.
I don't buy used console games as is, but as there is essentially no used market for PC games, you would think I must be getting charged out the nose, right? Far from it.
The same sale structure will prevail in this (supposed) new console game market.
I will personally travel to wherever the last Gamestop store is when it closes its doors permanently and throw vegetables. That place is The Worst.
This is absolutely no reason to think this. If you look at current xbox and PSN games "on demand," they often sale for MSRP or higher. Steam is able to fluctuate prices because the developers control those costs; microsoft and sony control their respective systems and they have shown 0 effort to price war. I mean, why should they?
I agree a steam-like system on the next gens is nice, but there's zero proof that such a thing will occur with this move. In fact, we have only proof of the exact opposite.
