Buying used games is cheating, THQ says

Written by Nedim Hadzic

If users are upset, we don’t really care
THQ’s Cory Ledesma has in no uncertain terms cleared up the company’s stance on buying used games, calling it cheating in the process.

He said how every time someone purchases a used THQ game, they “get cheated”. Furthermore, he hopes that people will understand this and won’t be disappointed. However, judging by initial user reactions, these might turn out to be high hopes indeed.

Curiously enough, in a wonderful display of double standards, the company who just called for users’ understanding is keen to announce how it’s virtually devoid of any sympathy or understanding for users who buy a used THQ game. In fact, Ledesma says how "if used game buyers are upset they don't get the online feature set I don't really have much sympathy for them".

So, the fact that some individuals might not have the cash to splash out on the full deal is obviously not something THQ deems worthy of sympathy, yet it's quick to call for sympathy when things don't go their way.
