THQ have been quite out-spoken on their views about the pre-owned games industry, and their latest remarks do little to soften their position.
"I don't think we really care whether used game buyers are upset because new game buyers get everything. So if used game buyers are upset they don't get the online feature set I don't really have much sympathy for them." Said Cory Ledesma, THQ's WWE creative director.
"That's a little blunt but we hope it doesn't disappoint people." He added.
The upcoming WWE title, WWE Smackdown vs Raw 2011 will include a one-used only code in the box which will unlock access to the online multiplayer and some DLC.
