Why Pre-Ordering Is a Waste of Time

CCC Says: "We find ourselves in the midst of an exciting few weeks. With the PS4 recently released and the Xbox One due out this Friday, I guess you can say we’ve officially started the next-gen. After that, we’ll move into what they call the “launch window,” which is just a fancy way of describing the weeks and months to follow a launch, where everything will still have that new-console smell. So, with all eyes currently fixed on the world of gaming, I’ll attempt to steal a bit of your attention away from the excitement of the new launches for a moment. This is my effort to bring to light several issues in the gaming industry that have gone unchecked for far too long. Recently, I highlighted just how detrimental the concept of purchasing pre-owned games is to the industry (which steals revenue and lines the pockets of companies like GameStop)."
