I see that you have a playstation 3 gameswap section, I've been informed that once you have inserted a ps3 game in to a ps3 the game and console become linked, making the game unplayable on somebody elses ps3, don't know wot truth there is in that though

Don't know what the truth is in that, but if it is correct then that would do my head in, I buy most of my games pre-owned (cheapskate) and though I can usually afford new, i'd stay away from the console on principle, as I doubt they are going to make the games dirt cheap to make up for the fact that once you own them, your stuck with them

Nah, as I only buy games that I really really want and know that I will keep forever, such as Half Life (whole lot), and Unreal Tournaments... etc

if that is true my oh might aswell close his shop down as it would put them out of business but i wouldn't of thought so because of the prices they expect to charge for these games plus people share games etc .

i hope to see some of you on there

Surely to 'cripple' your PS3 game discs the console would have to have a built in DVD burner? Surely it's on read only media.

Did you start the site or something Lee?

The only way I can see that Sony could acomplish this would be to require that you register the game online via the PS3 before playing it and then tag the game disc ID to the ID of the machine.

As much as I'm sure Sony would like to do something like this I think they'd have more sense, the negative effect on sales would be huge.
