Best Buy to Match Used Game Prices

on August 7, 2009 4:13 PM

In a local Best Buy in Utah one gamer snapped the photo attached. Looks like Best Buy is flirting with the idea of price matching used games. This would directly compete with GameStop and their current used games empire. The premise is that they would offer a price match on used video games from other franchises while offering new factory wrapped video games.

What does this mean for regular priced games? Will GameStop look to change their strategy to combat this? This seems to be alocal promo for now but we will keep our eye on it and see what shakes loose.
