"For the record, I'm totally opposed to blocking used games. I think it is great for the consumer that they can buy those. We have a customer that buys our console late in the cycle, pays less and is looking for value-priced games. I think it would be anti-consumer for us to do that." - Jack Tretton, Sony Computer Entertainment of America CEO.
Is Mr Tretton’s commentary truly indicative of consumer support, or is there just not enough drive of digital growth to truly justify the ending of retail’s most profitable business: pre-owned games?
