Games So, the Xbox One disaster continues. Microsoft's policy for dealing with the used games market has reportedly leaked - and it's a clear and direct attack to destroy the used games market. Prices for used games will be set at the retail value of a new game, and retailers have to hook into Microsoft's computer systems and comply with Microsoft's terms and conditions.

used book stores mostly deal with out of print stock.


Can you cite a source for that? My sister is an avid book reviewer ( http://historical-fiction.com ) and while she gets a lot of her books via giveaways and publisher advance copies, she also does a lot of browsing in used book stores for current, in-print books. She also once worked as a manager at a used book store that I still visit frequently, and while they have a good selection of old out of print stock, the bulk of their inventory is in print.

It's been my general experience that there are two types of used book stores: Antique stores that sell books older than the building that houses them, and general used book stores that deal mostly in current works.
