Looks like Microsoft are still toying around with this idea. 10% of your original purchase price would mean $6 in store credit for a $60 game. Seems pretty low but then again you'd get nothing for it anyway if there wouldn't be a way to sell it.

No? Yes? I guess I just don't understand the logistics of selling a digital game.

10% from the price I paid? I probably would for Titanfall or anything that hits GWG, sure.
I don't even have Titanfall installed anymore.

10% off the purchase price would only mean something valuable with sports games, where 3 years later you can sell it back for $6 when it is essentally valueless.

I think 30% of the current value of the game is a reasonable number for both sides (gamestop gives around 40%)

I'm only interested if there's a higher price for newer games, in a $60 games instance it would be $30 within first year, $15 next year for example but I know that wouldn't happen

I think 25% of whatever it's currently selling for on the Xbox store is a good deal. Digital games usually have zero resale value.

Or something like 30% of current price, not price bought.

Either way I guess it's good that they are at least considering it but we have a long way to go.

Edit: glad others seem to think the same

10% is a flat-out ripoff. That just gives gamers more reason to buy and trade physical copies instead of the digital route.

20%, maybe for games I don't touch anymore. 10% is nothing. 6 dollars from a 60 dollar game? May as well keep it for the nothing I'd get back.

That said, I'm intrigued that they're interested in the concept, perhaps this could be the start of something.

Not if it's supposed to entice those of us who don't really want to move to digital for these exact reasons.

But like what's the incentive for either party? Digital games are infinite. Selling them back to whoever owns the infinite printing press seems pointless.

I could see selling the license to someone else, but the store itself? Doesn't make any sense.

It's quite a bit worse then GameStop in a lot of cases. That's a whole another level of shenanigans. This is why folks should be happy that Xbone digital only shit died on the vine.
