I am pretty sure that the eula started adding that only recently, like the past 5-10 years, but I really don't know. Everything you "buy" from an app store has it too. I recall amazon pulling books off of some kindles not to long ago. People bought them, but then amazon kicked the books from their store. Then they went into all the kindle's and deleted those books, even though people had paid for them. Plus, alot of game companies are trying to remove resells. Really makes me annoyed.
Go through the eula in any game in this gen of consoles, and I have no doubt you will see it. The problem is that they "hide" it, so not many people know about it.
I honestly havn't bought a new game in a long time, except for the humble bundles anyways. If I am going to be renting the games anyways, might as well just really rent them. Or borrow them, whatever.
Of the few games I have bought recently, Bioshock 2 and Far Cry 2 being about the newest big games, I always install the crack now too. I own the game, have the DVD and all, but the "crack" just makes it so much more usable. Dang companies are just making it to hard to play a game. Case in point: I couldn't play Far Cry 2 for a year, because I didn't have internet on my gaming computer, and didn't know about cracks. It needed to check a server to see if it can install. Now, even if you have net, what happens when that server goes down? Or if the company goes down? You no longer "rent" the game, thats what. Or you crack it.
The only reason I wanted a vita is because A. I knew it would be great playing my old GBA games, 2. I wanted a small internet device, and C. I wanted a mp3/video player with bluetooth. I really am not interisted in many of the games. Actually, none that are out now look all that worth it, though some in the future do, like Bioshock. Only time will tell though.

Yeah, I just wish that america would get it into it's thick skull that it isn't right. For now though, it is illigal, at least as far as I know. It could all just be a bunch of FUD put out by the gaming corps, but I am not sure. Some times I want to move to Canada. America is just so backwords when it comes to tech.
