There goes classic gaming.

This is such crap: new Sony lockware prevents selling or loaning of games. Sony's basically trying to kill – entirely – what miniscule efforts exist for classic gaming. I'm a book collector, and I'm constantly on the lookout for old hardcover editions from my favorite authors. Would I be the first one to read them? Hell no. The same goes for me if I really want to play, say, Ico, an older video game that's still supposed to be amazing. I can't waltz down to GameStop and buy a new copy because they're no longer making it. OK, fine – I can pick up a used copy from somewhere. "Ah, ah, ah," sayeth Sony. Bastards. Not just bastards. Idiot bastards.


I don't see how Sony can do this with the stiff competition they're going to be facing with the XBox 360. They're cutting their own throats.
