Industry Veteran Says Used Game Sales Are Killing Core Games
Posted on Monday, March 19 @ 10:29:34 Eastern by Jonathan_Leack
Used game sales are more prevalent than ever before, and while that can seem like a good thing for gamers who like to save a few bucks, it's not making publishers or developers happy.
While speaking with Gamasutra, David Braben, co-writer of Elite and founder of Frontier Developments, had a lot to say about used game sales and how they've not only affected him but the entire gaming industry - and not in a good way. Braben offered some insight into his take on the controversial topic by prefacing with the following:
