I don't follow your logic:
- MW3 is a pile of crap
- MW3 sold really well at release and the company made billions (millions?)
- <...one or more missing steps...>
- somehow allowing used games to be played affects this
- if it isn't perfect on release day then eff it
I seriously don't see how used games fits into your argument.
I for one would rather buy new and have the developer get their slice of the pie so that they can develop the next game I want to play, than buy used and have GameStop make all the money with the developer getting ZERO.
If people choose to buy crappy Madden games year after year, that has nothing to do with the used market. Unless of course those people really think getting $5 back when they sell it is a good deal.
