Disadvantage with used copy?

#1 Posted by Outrager (145 posts) -

I was thinking about buying Demon's Souls and was wondering if there are any disadvantages with getting a used copy. What I mean is are there any 1 time use codes or something that would make it better to just buy a new copy?

No, no stupid codes at all.

Nope, the game has no retail exclusive content/dlc codes or anything like that.

The publishers/developers don't get paid.

Which I would consider a disadvantage if it's a good game.

@Outrager :

true, also I just did a search on amazon, and you can get a new copy for 20 bucks, no reason to go for a used.

@Outrager:

You might look into Goozex.com for older games like this. I'm grabbing a copy of Darksiders in the near future, it's been a @#$%@% gold mine for playing older games. Highly recommend the site. In the beginning there can be a lot of waiting but the key is to give yourself a lot of options. (IE get in line for many games)

Gah, shut up. Do you only buy new cars, new clothes, new CD's, new movies and new video games?

I usually don't care too much about the new used developer thing, since buying used allows me to purchase games in greater quantities... but dude, buy Demon's Souls fucking new. It's only $15 anyway, and it's incredible.

This argument has been made a hundred times over, and in much better ways then yours.
And was rebuked time and time again.

So pardon me for not explaining economics 101 every time this happens.
