Circuit City to start selling used games

Major US retailer Circuit City is to start selling secondhand games, according to this.

The store chain is to trial the service in 10 outlets, with plans to expand to other shops if the test is a success. Which it almost certainly will be. The move by Circuit City is a second step to get into the games business, after recently launching a discount plan called the Gamer Savings Club, which has now attracted more than 25,000 members.

In case you’re wondering why this matters, or why American publishers are probably reading this news through the gaps in their fingers, take a look at this.
