The next-gen consoles aren't even here yet and boy are they creating some serious controversy, we here at TweakTown have been on the bleeding edge of all of it, delivering you up-to-date news on every subject and now we have CliffyB of Epic Games' fame weighing in on the used game debate.

We've seen Microsoft pull out all the stops to slow down pre-order sales of their Xbox One (seriously, what are they thinking) and now we have CliffyB not impressed with Sony's ways, either. CliffyB said: "You cannot have game and marketing budgets this high while also having used and rental games existing. The numbers do NOT work people." CliffyB continued, saying that games have reached the point of being so big that there is no way that the next generation of games can survive if the used game and rental game markets continue to get hit.

 

It's ok, guys, if you live in Australia you'll notice the price of brand new PS4 games is $119. Considering our dollar is pretty much on par with the USD, it's a bit insane.
