    I said this in another forum, but given Game Stop's tendency to rip off consumers by pricing used games at "55" dollars, I think developers/publishers should support and go out of their way to strike deals with other stores. Whether it's Best Buy or some gaming stores like Play N Trade. Just find ways to boost their gaming business, and in turn get some money from used games sales. Clearly, GS is not going to be brought to the negotiating table unless everyone went digital just like that.

    The problem is, I don't know that anything would stop GameStop from lowering their prices to match. Instead, they have to lean on the digital platform to make the used game market lower in quantity and quality, while also making new game sales through GameStop less appealing.

    I haven't shopped at GS in years, just because I hate their practices. I find that Best Buy, and then stores like Amazon tend to run more promotions for recent games. I do wonder who makes the call on those "Pre-order from GS and get exclusive items". Cause if GS is paying top dollar for those, sometimes it's best to take your business elsewhere so they suffer.
