Walmart's Used Video Game Business Won't Kill GameStop

I don't think Walmart getting into the used game business is going to "kill" GameStop but, one thing is for sure, it sure isn't going to help them either.

For Walmart, which has been increasingly interested in used electronics of all kinds, the strategy is pretty simple. "Our goal is to buy used video games for more, and ultimately sell certified pre-owned video games for less," says Laura Phillips, the company’s senior vice president for entertainment. It is starting aggressively next week, with the release of Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare, one of the most anticipated games of the year.
