Thats really not a bad idea . Id go for it . Sony and the game manufacturers are against used games . Sony even went the distance of having the PS3 destroy a layer of the new PS3 games as a anti piracy and resell of games . They might even incorporate it into the PS3 which would mean you wouldnt be able to rent a game or play a game at a buddies house that you have played on your PS3 youd have to bring your consoul !
