EA to Charge $10 Fee for Online to Those Who Buy Used Games
â€œItâ€™s quite simple â€“ every game will come with a game-specific, one-time use registration code with each unit sold new at retail,â€
So what do you think? I know several people that purposely wait for used games or price drops to save money. On the other hand, the developers lose money each time a game is sold used.
Its quite the double edged sword, but as a gamer, I will not be buying any EA Sports games used going forward.
I know Madden 10 did something like this already.
So even borrowing the game from a friend will cost you $10.
