On a special bonus episode of Podtoid, Eat Sleep Play co-founder and Twisted Metal co-director David Jaffe chats with Jim Sterling about used games, online passes, and the strained relationship between publishers and consumers. Are gamers being treated like thieves? Is GameStop a villain? Will all this be rendered moot when digital distribution takes hold?
It's a fascinating discussion that provides a lot to think about for all concerned. If you care about videogame consumer issues, this is a podcast you'd do well to listen to!
Thanks to David Jaffe for spending time chatting about the issue, and making for a very insightful, interesting podcast.
