Although many argue that you should be able to sell that game you bought on Steam or Origin (or D2D and all the rest) just like you can sell a boxed copy. Would this real this make a better industry?
With second hand items you get them in a used and worn condition - with the odd scrape and scratch. With a digital copy, there's nothing that differentiates this from the first time sale.
If you can sell on your digital games, then it would open up the platforms for resellers who aim to buy on sale and sell high. Putting money in the wrong hands. I'm all for paying the developer if I enjoyed the game, and a second hand game doesn't put any money in the dev's pocket.
From where I see it, the way that dev's can beat this would be the F2P/P2W and micro-transaction model which I dislike greatly.
Would the ability* to re-sell your digital games be something you'd want?*Legally ofc, as it stands selling your Steam/Origin/other account is a break of terms iirc.
