Capcom kills used game sales with one-save game policy

Posted on Wednesday, June 29 2011 @ 05:00:03 CEST by


DailyTech reports Capcom's new Resident Evil: The Mercenaries 3D game for Nintendo's 3DS handheld console is the first game to use a one-save game scheme to thwart second-hand game sales. Gamers can show how much they appreciate this great new feature by spending their money on games from other publishers
One-save games make certain video games a one-time-only soiree. Once you play through the game entirely, unlocking all of the hidden treasures and extras, a user will not be able to erase the game's data and start over again. What does this mean? The next person who plays a used copy can only continue playing the saved data with that particular player's settings, and cannot start over fresh for their own personal gaming experience.

So far, only "Resident Evil: The Mercenaries 3D" for the Nintendo 3DS has been confirmed as a one-save game. The one-save feature has been added to the game's manual in both the U.S. and U.K.
