I can understand completely the benefits of DRM to both consumers and especially developers/publishers, but do they outweigh those of purchasing games pre-owned/second hand? If a pre-owned game is cheaper, still has online access, has DLC which can be purchased an will no doubt see a GOTY/Complete Edition re-release and can be traded/purchased for store credit, why go brand new? Also, what would you suggest to make buying games new without seeming like a punishment or restriction? Monthly rewards? Free season passes? Or are pre-order goodies enough? Thanks in advance for your comments!

That's a good point but because its been so long since I bought a broken second hand game I'd forgotten about that! Your idea is a good one though, and another plus for digital download! Thanks for your comment ^^
