    imo, there is little to no trade-in game stores here in israel so used game here is not an issue, but this is mostly a PR move to ride the train of "lets bash the xbox one" that sony is doing since the beginning of the E3

    Exactly. If Kid Icarus was actually good than I might have not sold my copy.

    You enjoyed "Xenoblade Chronicles", your argument is invalid. ;O;

    Xenoblade Chronicles is a fantastic game...

    Anyways, well, he is right. If publishers don't throw out the same rehashed game every few months and instead deliver good and qunique content people won't sell their games so early. And keeping the price below 65 bucks helps also...

    This forum is full of trolls. Both of the afore mentioned games are fantastic in their own right. Now whether or not you enjoyed them is another matter entirely...

    Anyway, while Nintendo does have higher standards (most of the time) and create stellar titles with some consistency, I can safely say that I trade in my Nintendo titles as much as I trade in others. I don't trade games in because they're terrible. I trade them in as a way to get new ones. Used games also have a better return policy and can function like a rental service if you go through games quick enough.

    Yeah, it's not that simple. For some people, trading in their used games is an economic necessity. Other games, no matter the quality, are just inherently more likely to be traded in - short, singleplayer titles, for example.

    If you want to know why a lot of games seem to have shoehorned multiplayer modes or heavily emphasis on DLC, well, this is why.
