Gamestop insisted on price gouging customers for used games

I've never understood the outrage over this. Every place that deals in used media does this. Getting a pittance for your used goods has always been the norm for everything, not just video games. It's the cost of dealing with a middle man. They have to resell that used merchandise for a profit, and in Gamestop's case the fact that new video games are a relatively low-margin product means that it makes sense that GameStop isn't paying you $45 for the $60 game you just bought. You want a good return on your used wares? Then take the effort to sell it to the new end-user yourself.
