Because game companies don't have to charge full price on steam because they make a huge profit margin compared to store bought game sales. Stores like Gamestop push used games over new, so they make the money rather than the developer. Without the used games plaguing the market, devs will have more and more revenue, and game prices will eventually drop.
The only reason some major titles are ever 50 pounds or 60$ on steam is because game devs are told by game sales shops to make it that way, or they will refuse to stock their game new. Gamestop and GAME (in the U.K) basically have control over the business end of the gaming market on consoles. Playstation's intagration with steam is a fantastic step forward, however, because it gives us an alternative.
It will suck major donkey dick that we won't be able to borrow, rent or trade in games once we go digital, but overall it will be a much more stable and enjoyable market.

Oh hey, yet another moron who thinks Total Biscuit knows what he's talking about.
Ok, lets say they get rid of used game sales entirely. Why would they even bother lowering the prices? They know they can get away with charging full price for them, so why bother?

You are right, I saw the totalbiscuit vid and I do agree with him for the most part. Your point is the one thing that urks me about this situation. With no reason to lower prices, they wont. In fact, they will most likely increase them.
You have to think though, if Microsoft suddenly had 70 dollar games and Ps4 had steam prices, who would win there? Prices wont go up dramatically with the destruction of used games, because of competition. (Although, with the way comsumerism and capitalism works I'd assume they would all agree to raise prices at the same time, but who knows.)
I'd hope in the future that Ps4 would start selling games digitally via steam mostly, rather than relying on store sales. With the prices of steams microsoft would be forced to compete or slowly melt away.
I normally hate what total biscuit says, he is stuck up and to be honest is just plain rude. He does have some valid points about the used game market though.

I'm going to sleep, its 7 am here (played Warframe for literally 15 hours today... yay sick time) and I sleepy. Nice to see some people with some actual knowledge on how consoles are doing... peace.

Gamestop in america is rolling in the money. No kidding, they have an iron grip on the market.
You want a game in America? Is it a newer console game? GAMESTOP! There are literally 2 on every corner (No joking, there are 2 gamestops in the same fucking outlet mall here) and they SHOVE their promotional offers down your throat. Its worse than an angry christian preaching to the "Fag" about how they are going to hell.
In all seriousness here, you make valid points and for the most part you are right, the market prices won't drop soon if ever. Inflation will see to that. However, the companies are starting to move in the direction of digital games, and steam proves how effective that market is. DLC and other fully digital add-ons to existing games are already crazy popular, and will only get more popular.
The answer isn't should we or shouldn't we get rid of used games, its when is it happening. Game companies make more money via digital transactions and will over time move to it.
