Here's two scenarios I predict could happen:
Xbox has used game fee, ps4 doesn't.
This makes Xbox the favorable console for developers and publishers, meaning Xbox gets a much bigger library, sales skyrocket due to that.
PS4 gets the WII-U problem, nobody buys it because there aren't many games for it.
Sony does one of three things: Applies used game fees, eats the losses Nintendo style or drops out of the console race.
In the first case Sony fanboys hate Sony for giving in, causing a disruption in sales and causing Sony to drop out of the console race due to an irreparable reputation or eat the losses Nintendo style.

Scenario two:
They both apply used games fees and everybody is pissed but both consoles survive.

except no body will make games for a console no one buys.

Fanboys, casuals, kids and families.
All people who would buy the Xbox one, all people who (sadly) make up the larger portion of the gaming community.

I know a lot of hard core fan boys that are really pissed about the new xbox. I know like die hard fans of xbox that want nothing to do with xboxone. I feel like there has to be more people like that than just the ones Iknow.

There are a lot of die hard fans that are pissed, you're correct about that, but I don't think that number will be anywhere close to enough to make sales go down enough to hurt game development for the console.

There really isn't any point in arguing this.

It's rather pointless as none of us really know what will happen. I guess we will all just have to wait and see.

I agree.

Except that the PS4 is making a huge opening for free development of Indie games. This huge open market of Indie games will not only introduce new and exciting ways to game, but will create the right friction to keep big companies on their console to compete with the indie titles.

That will really depend on the development cost for the PS4, if it's too high indie developers won't use it. The other problem is that they're promoting indie development by killing off concept approval, meaning that the flow of crap games will be huge unless they make some form of semi-strict approval system, which will put off indie developers. The last problem is the first thing a lot indie developers make are puzzle games, platformers and puzzle-platformers, not really anything larger companies will even care about enough to compete with, and not anything that can safely be a selling point for a console. There's also the whole problem of indie "developers" who take a game by another company, re-texture it and then go sell it on a different platform, which could lead to massive lawsuits for sony if they promote those games.

There is a huge section on this in the new Game Informer that explains the new Indie game system for PS4, sadly I am at college classes today and cannot get that info for you. But you are free to search it.

>Sales skyrocket due to that.

Implying people are morons and decide somehow along the lines of "hey, this is an enourmous turd, but let's eat it because it has a strawberry on top".
