GameStop President Tony Bartel Talks Xbox One, PlayStation 4, Used Games And Pre-Orders

Forbes - GameStop is already signing up PowerUp Rewards gamers who want to be first in line to pre-order the just-announced Xbox One next gen console. The game retailer had a similar First To Know List for PlayStation 4, which attracted nearly 1 million gamers. The list offers news on the new Xbox, but does not guarantee a system for this Christmas.

The story is too old to be commented.

I would rather see backwards-compatibility and not get fleeced by Gamestop for trade-ins.

xbox and ps aren't going to be backwards compatible because of the upgrade to x86 cpu. so at least fanboys wont be foaming at the mouth flaming each over that aspect.

No one forces you to trade in games . Damn them for trying to be a successful company and make money!

This is exactly what I don't understand. Sure gamestop endorses used game sales, but they're a business and it's not like they are saying you have to buy a used game. I bet if they charged 50% of a game's cost for a used game, people would flock to defend them.

People that should not open their mouths ever about video games: GameStop. Jerks. :<

Don't think they'll be backwards compatibility

This is going to be an exciting Christmas. Dear Santa, I want it all.

I have already accepted that the days of used games are coming to and end.

You've accepted false rumors and heresay, thus failing once again. Both systems are confirmed to play used games. Curse you blasted truths!
