I’d heard many recommendations that the “God of War” series of games on the Playstation were among the best titles every released for the game console. On ebay, I found that you could pick up the console, plus 3 top rated game titles for under $100.
This looked like a terrific deal and buying products one step behind the technology curve made excellent economical sense, especially if not having the latest game is not going to kill you.
Colin Sebastian, a senior analyst with Lazard Capital Markets estimates that used gaming products, generated over $1 billion in revenue in North America alone with margins of about 50%. GameStop and EBGames are already selling used titles. Circuit City is getting started. Many online stores are deep into the practice. Therefore, if you’re feeling like playing a few games, look back – it’s cheaper and environment friendlier.
