Blake Jorgensen has provided some commentary in regards to the anti-used games debate for the PS4 and Xbox 720. According to a report by IGN on Feb. 13, the chief financial officer at Electronic Arts (the publisher behind “Battlefield 3” among other titles) admitted that the “used game business has been critical for the health of the retail channel.” He also believed that the video games industry will never be 100 percent digital.

It's one of these classic double-edged swords. In one way the used game business has been critical for the health of the retail channel, and having a healthy retail channel is an important thing for us. The business will probably never be 100 percent digital.
“Battlefield 3” was developed by EA Digital Illusions CE and published by the aforementioned Electronic Arts. The first-person shooting video game launched for the PC, Playstation 3 and Xbox 360 in North America on Oct. 25, 2011. You can order the title in the following link: “Battlefield 3”
