"Looking at popular high street second hand store CEX and it’s clear that there’s some disparity between games being traded in on Xbox One and PS4 with far more second hand copies of Knack and Killzone sitting on their shelves.  Whilst certainly not conclusive overall, it does paint an interesting picture of what games are keepers and what games are not.

From our findings, looking at the number of CEX stores across the UK which have more than 4 copies of the games in stock, the figures are quite startling.

Knack sits on shelves in around 105 stores which have four or more second hand copies in stock. – total available online 984.

Killzone Shadow Fall sits on shelves in some 198 stores which have four or more second hand copies in stock – total available online 3053.

In comparison,

Dead Rising 3 sits on shelves in 17 stores which have four or more second hand copies in stock – total online 207.

Forza 5 is sitting on store shelves in  24 stores where there are four or more second hand copies in stock – total available online 325.

Meanwhile, Ryse Son of Rome is sitting on store shelves in 44 stores where there are four or more second hand copies in stock  - total available online 436, making it Xbox One’s most traded in exclusive game.

Whilst this might not be mirrored across other retailers such as GAME, or even second hand sites like Ebay, as far as CEX customers are concerned, there are more PS4 exclusive games being traded in compared to the Xbox One exclusive games. We’re not even going to attempt to figure out why this is aside from what we’ve already mentioned, and certainly won’t suggest it’s because one set of games is better than the others, or that there are more PS4s in the wild than Xbox Ones. What is likely is many PS4 gamers were lumbered with a bundle due to stock shortages and simply sold the game that came with the PS4 rather than keep it.  Either way, the results are interesting and means that if you are looking to purchase these games second hand, the more they have in stock, the cheaper the resell value becomes."

Well this certainly must mean something. Whenever I have a game I know I won't replay or I just hated it I cast my magic spell and transform it into money! There is no use to keep them and you can use the money you got for a future game purchase.

I think it says more about the people who play them than the games itself.

Maybe PS4 gamers don't have much money. Hence they chose the cheaper system ;)

on the contrary, PlayStation gamers have more money, because sony told them to get two jobs 7 years ago.

It's funny because I read the conversation about this in the other thread^^

Ok maybe they are not poor but really really greedy. Hence the 2 Jobs ;)

What does this even mean?  Why would anyone say that when just about every game you can mention is being re-sold somewhere?

I'm honestly puzzled by this.

That's simply not true if I read you correctly. Nintendo first party games are generally much harder to find in stores under the "used" shelf, wheras Sony and MS first party games are far more often available in the used section. Companies like Nintendo (and there are others) are of such charming quality that people never want to resell them again, whereas companies like Sony and Microsoft which sell games that often times (not always by the way) feel heartless and less than charmful have a lot of used games in stores. I hardly ever see used first party Nintendo games in stores. People keep those games.

and valves never get traded, speaks volume about valves quality. 

Sorry but you got half of it correct. In a lot of cases Sony quality actually acts like Nintendo quality, look at Last of Us, or Uncharted (Before the repackaged version). 

Activision actually does this with Call of Duty as well. It is making sure that the product you created is wanted by the userbase, that doesn't want to trade it in. Also that the demand for the product exists.
