AlsoPenny Arcade is actually what prompted me to write about the used game market--Tycho put up a news post yesterday about the THQ interview that was interesting, as always, and it made me think about the issue in ways that I hadn't before .
What interested me most was that the response to Tycho was so passionate and so heated (Gabe notes that in the post below Tycho's, and here's a good example).
That's another reason why I think the gaming companies are playing with fire here. It's like closing your eyes and poking a very sharp stick into an animal of unknown size and aggression. It might not eat you.
