This really sounds fun. I can't stop thinking about Neal Stephenson, though--and all the IP issues. Publishers and entertainment industry groups love to delineate their positions through lawsuits, when they can't get legislators to do their bidding. Good luck GameStop!
How are they going to reissue keys? People know how to write things down...
They would have to work together with steam, etc to deactivate the keys and I can tell you that steam is going to tell them to buzz right off. hey would rather do it themselves, but why would they? No quality loss and sell it cheaper as pre-owned? Maybe their own download service (who did they buy again) will allow them to do that, but people will have to be dumb and most pc gamers arent.
who even goes to gamestop
If they figure this out, I might cheer gamestop for a change. My Steam library is littered with games that I really enjoyed when I got them, but haven't touched in a LONG time and have no motivation revisit after beating (I'm looking at you Darksiders and Assassins Creed 2). Read a while ago that steam was looking into game trading, but nothing's materialized yet. Even if Gamestop fails, the interest they generate might help drive Valve, Origin, etc., to come up with their own solution.
i also Like to play games.
