Even though Gamestop may get more trade - ins, they get alot less per sale so it depends on what they would want more, more profit or more sales?
I don't see why they have to choose. PS4 games might have a higher profit margin for them, but Xbone's policies squeeze out their private seller competition. I'd be pretty surprised if they don't treat them evenhandedly.
companies usually profit more from a monopol even if the margin seems to be lower.
As long as you have competition you are forced to adjust the price somehow to be able to compete,but creating a cartell(gamestop&co)
they can dictate the price and either you acceppt what they want to give or you can't sell the game.Than they'll give you only 30bucks for a new used game and sell it for 50 and give 5dollars to the publisher.There's a higher profit than buying the game for 40 and selling it for 50.The profit will even be higher as they can push the price for used games and sell them higher .
therefore I think gamestop will again push the xbox
