These people are meat virgins. They'll be taken by the grill and delicately and tenderly be shown the ways of flavorful meat love. The first time is beautiful.

Advertise a game heavily, hype the s*** out of it on boards like this, create a ton of interest about the game so people pre-order it.

Combine the 6000+ GameStop stores with the number of other retailers that also sell videogames, including WalMart, Best Buy, Target, KMart, and every other retailer on the planet with an electronics section in the store.

They would only need to order a few copies per store to hit the profit mark, because once the retailers order the game, the developers get paid.

If this was an episode of Twilight Zone, you'd be locked in a room with all those games and unlimited time to play them, and then your 360 would RROD.

every single used game was sold as NEW once already, that means the developers got their money for it, and that's all they deserve. They do NOT deserve a cut of any used sales, no other industry that sells things used gives the original creators a cut of their profits. Used cars, electronics, clothing, furniture, etc etc etc, none of those stores send a cut of their profits to the original creators of the things they sell, so why should game developers get a cut of used sales?

Ah, the tired old weak used car analogy rears its head again. Used cars and other items tend to be well used by the time they are sold. They are cheaper than new because they have little or no warranty left, are more prone to break, etc. The used game problem is games that are weeks or months old and are functionally identical to new games. So it's really not the same thing. GameStop has about 25% profit margin on new games and 50% on used games. They're doing better than most developers, and most of the money in used games ends up in GameStop execs pockets, not in the industry creating games.

Movies can easily make their costs back and huge profits from the cinema run, before a single DVD is pressed. And who buys a DVD to trade it in the next week or month anyway? Movies also have other revenue streams such as PPV sales to cable and satellite providers, airlines, hotels, etc.
