Digital Sales precluding used market leading to more direct capture of more consumer money is also an economic reality. Just one not mentioned by corporate PR. If game business was so crappy, why would companies invest hundreds of millions into it? They tell you part of picture and don't tell you to look at their profit results. No company lowered prices when they added DLC. Funny that. People can be resigned to corporations exploiting them, but why waste the effort to repeat their propaganda? Why get emotionally invested in their one sided PR lines?
