It would seem that cool new things are afoot at Best Buy stores! Well, one, anyway – the store located in West Jordan, Utah. It seems that the store is advertising a new games policy whereby customers can price match new games with the prices of the equivalent used titles at other stores (GameCrazy, GameStop, GameWeRipYouOffonUsedGames, etc)! If adopted nation-wide, this means Bet Buy will have taken away any incentive to buy the used titles at other retailers! The game industry will be very happy to hear this as they claim used game sales eat into their profits.
We have contacted Best Buy for an official comment regarding the policy and will update this post when we hear back.
