Is anyone from a country that doesn't have a vibrant used game market?

If so can you tell us about how the market works there? Are the new games priced lower as some theorize they would be if there were no used game sales?

Can you share anything else that might be relevant to us on the issue please?

I live in US of A and the used game market will not really be impacted and people need to chill the f out.

We sell it thru internet site like ebay or amazon.
Or to a friend.
Or directly posting advertisement on a buy and sell forums.

I understand the frustration and everything, but used games are hardly worth it (if you're buying through gamestop, that is).

There is a huge used game market beyond gamestop. Used games are especially worth it when games are out of print. It is the only way to play them.

I already stated outside of Gamestop.

But the truth is, Gamestop is 95% of the used games market.

So if you saw two copies of the same game on the shelf, one was used and cost $10, and the other was new and cost $60, your telling me you'd go for the $60 one?

I'm from Aus, where new games cost $90-$100. The Aussie dollar is currently at parity with the US dollar.

It's cheaper to import a new game from asia or europe than to buy a used game in EB in Australia.

Man I wish I lived where the difference between new and used was $50. Where I live a used copy of a $60 game usually costs $55. Which makes me mad knowing they probably gave some dumbarese who could have sold it on eBay for $40+ a $20 store credit. I then proceed to but the new $60 version somewhere else so I don't support that ripoff of a store (EBgames/GameStop)

Exactly. I know tons of places in Winnipeg where I can get a new release between $45 and $50, but never mind new releases, the other day I nabbed EDF Insect Armageddon for $15 off Amazon. I can't buy that new at all. I'm sure as hell glad I didn't have to buy a license for it .
