If Used Games Die, Will GameStop Follow?

It’s looking more like trouble for GameStop with the next-gen consoles poised to turn everything upside down for the GameStop world of used games. Microsoft and Sony both have held a tight grip on the details of used games so far, leaving GameStop in the virtual dark about its future.
