Best Buys used game selection is putrid compared to GameStops. I much rather buy used games at Best Buy rather than GameStop but I can't do that if Best Buy doesn't have a very good selection of used games...

Gamestop’s Entire business is used games. Best Buy couldn’t give a s***. They can actually make profit on new games thanks to their sale numbers and appliances.

Two different companies, Best Buy does not depend on games as much as Gamestop does, in addition, Best Buy would much rather sell new stuff than old, where it seems like Gamestop is much more comfortable selling old games, and previously played games(Well new instead of used)

Buying used games is very healthy for the industry, it's makes it so everyone can access games without buying new. Developers don't need money they already got paid they really should encourage people to buy used games more.

Then who else besides local game stores and Play N Trade (I don't have either of those stores where I live) are going to compete with GameStops in terms of used games? I believe Walmarts selection of used games is putrid too.

Gamestop if #$@$ terrible, im surprised they are still in business.

They sell new games for $60, they buy it from you for $10 then resell the same used game for $50.

You want a used game for a great deal? Look on ebay.
