Single-Save Games

By Deane Barker on June 27, 2011

Capcom tries to kill used video game sales with the one-save game: I’m sure gamers will just take this sitting down, with nary a single complaint.

In a very sad twist, Capcom’s fighting back against the second-hand game market with a game that can only support one save file — for life.

It’s been confirmed that Resident Evil: Mercenaries 3D for the Nintendo 3DS is a game that once finished, cannot be reset for complete replay.

This is also why textbook publishers love the idea of ebooks – they can kill the secondary market by preventing an ebook from being resold.
