I was watching the Jimquistion on Escapist. He mentioned a fact that I didn't know. Gamestop makes about $2 dollars for every new game purchased. The other $58 goes to the game developers. Gamestop earns its profits from the used game market.
I don't believe what I am hearing - if the used game market is killed, then the new game prices will go down. In fact, I believe the reverse will happen - the new game prices will go up - and this will create a smaller number of people who can play these games.
Greed and stupidity seem to go hand-in-hand.
Remember the promise that digital delivered content would stop piracy and second hand games, and cut the middle man out, and those saving would make their way to the consumer.
