Yeah, Gamestop is great for anyone who hasn't discovered Amazon yet. :p

I use both GS & Amazon. But I use GS more because I like to browse the store and pick the games up and look at them. When the business goes all DD then the days of browsing a store will be gone. Kind of sad really.

Perhaps digital distribution... which they do. Tough in a dying market like used games. Give it another console cycle and we'll see.

Dying?
sdozzo  +   639d ago
yeah. hardcopy is dying.
Hicken  +   638d ago
That's interesting, cuz it seems like hard copies of games are still setting records for sales. And, right alongside all these physical copies being sold, the used market is growing, too.

If Gamestop would have benefited from X1 doing the DRM thing. The publishers still have the same power to block used games as they did before so that really hasnt changed.

The big thing was that MS said you could only trade and I would guess buy used games from a registered retailer. This would essentially cut out mom and pop stores and decrease the competition for Gamestop.

At this point I see them shrinking and continuing to shrink. More people will go digital once that hits a critical mass they will shrink to nothing. Unless by then they set up a digital network that trades buys and sells licenses (much like what MS was trying to do with the X1).

I like the answer he gave for Xbone. It's probably true.

What I will say and allot of other people say is their price on second games that have only been out a couple of months are way over priced
I was in on Sat one game was 48 euro new with all DLC and second hand was 44 so what's the point.
Saying that they take in all your games and if you put the money down on a PS4 ,not sure about Xbox 1, but I suppose its the same you get 25% extra on your trade in.
I traded in all my old games and old console and some Blu rays and PS4 is paid for.
Its all good in the Hood.
