With the launch of the A38s, Astro has clearly shown that they can rock our eardrums off even if we aren’t sitting in our living rooms.

Destiny Review
With Bungie's leap to next-generation platforms and interstellar space closer to home, I wonder if E.T. is out there somewhere.

PREVIEWS Skylanders Trap Team Preview
While younger gamers have flocked to the brand, more mature consumers remain reluctant to jump on board. Skylanders move forward with trappable enemies, though I doubt it’ll turn stubborn heads.

I'll tell you right now used games win that battle. There, I just did your homework now let me borrow your copy of Alan Wake.


Not that. this.

And that is just the best example I an find I am wondering if I can find more studies, if not it will do as part of the piece.


That is way too much to read. Can't you just go on Pawn Stars or something?

It's basically a study that uses mathematics to correlate used sales and buying patterns int he gaming world. The conclusion is this; Used games CAN be eliminated as they cause prices to rise for development costs, only if developers start charging less for their current/ products, say, $40 again for a Xbox One title.

The lower price eliminates the need for used games, which will eliminate the overhead charges that game companies loose to used game sales, and the need for them to try to get a piece of the action. If they don't do that however, simply eliminating used game sales is coined as "suicide" for the gaming industry.

Math? Development costs? Stuff??? And you want people to read your study?

Dude, on Pawn Stars this one guy brought in an NES signed by Shigeru Miyamoto. They had to call in a guy to make sure it was official and everything. Now THAT is what people wanna see.

Prices are sticky for a reason....

Good luck trying to convince the gaming industry to drop the price of new game.s
