GameStop Selling Used DLC?


GameStop

You read that title correctly, GameStop is planning on selling used DLC for consoles. In an interview during GameStop EXPO, GameStop’s executive vice president, Mike Hogan spoke about the possibility of selling used DLC: “It would require a partnership between retailers and publishers, but absolutely, it could go that way,” Hogan said. “We’re absolutely interested in pursuing that. There are lots of examples where people have taken digital content and made it transferable from one consumer to another.”

There is no official word of when this might occur, but sometime in the future selling used DLC might be a thing. The concept of used data is a strange one, but who knows what might happen. The main potential problem is that if people buy used DLC, then the developers might not make much if any money at all, just like it is with used games.
