Yep, those are good points. I've never sold a game. I hoard them, even if I don't like them (ok, I threw away Dungeon Lords, but that was a one time thing). However, with MS telling me that I can't do whatever I want with my $60 piece of plastic, I'm not going to be buying an XBO.

I think that MS saw how well Valve was doing without the ability to resell or lend and thought they could get away with it. The big differences are that people don't need to buy expensive Valve hardware to play their games and due to the nature of the PC, don't need to exclusively buy from Valve. If PC gamers could only buy games from Valve and could only play them on $500 Valve hardware, that would cause problems.
