I have not heard anything about gamestop buying gamefly... But u never know, Microsoft just bought Skype for 8.5 billion !!! Who would have seen that!! As far as watermarking games.. Being a father of 3 , I don't have the extra cash to be dropping 60 bucks everytime a new game comes out so I love gamefly!!! But I also realize that we need to support our game studios by buying their games so that they can continue to make awesome games for us!!! So it's a catch 22 for sure... But I don't think this will be the generation of consoles that implements the watermarking tech.. It just would not be wise for Microsoft or Sony to do this yet, although I would not b against it, but it would suck at same time.. Rest assured by the time PS5 and Xbox 3 come out it will be the standard to watermark discs !
