GameStop May Start Selling Used DLC
Gamestop is interested in selling used DLC as Gamestop's Executive Vice President Mike Hogan spoke about this at the third annual GameStop Expo. "Selling used DLC would require a partnership between retailers and publishers, but absolutely, it could go that way. 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." This happens all the time in games like World of Warcraft and Dota 2, where players routinely buy, sell, and trade virtual goods. But most digital content, especially on consoles, is licensed to one user and can't be transferred.
