EA fires first shot at used game sales

My guess is this is the first shot in a war that will end up marrying a new game to your system and killing the possibility of ever selling it used.
I am not a EA supporter and will not buy their games, after they locked up the NFL license I was done with them. It will be very interesting how this effects Gamefly.

With that said, I don't see it affecting the rental community much at all as you can still play the rented game online for 7 days.
