DVD Empire exits game business, attacks industry

DVD Empire exits game business, attacks industryOnline retailer DVD Empire has closed its games business and attacked the games industry in a statement revealing its reasons. "The video game industry only cares about mass merchandisers like Toys-R-Us, Wal-Mart, Best Buy, etc. They completely ignore the needs and wants of the medium to small game retailers," the statement reads. The retailer said that lack of price protection and unpredictable MSRP changes take smaller retailer out of the business.

The company said it is not big enough to return products and receives no compensation when there is a dramatic change to a product's Manufacturer's Standard Retail Price (MSRP), which they must observe. "If we buy a bad title, we are stuck on an industry-induced money losing ride through the land of price drops," it says.

The statement also says how it is too hard to compete with physical retailers when you are online. "Games bring in great foot traffic for physical retailers and they make money elsewhere. EB Games/Gamestop relies heavily on their used business. It is very difficult for online retailers to have an advantage, except for convenience." the statement reads.
preach it brother,the corporate machine has gobbled up the industry and tis become the next Hollywood "its not our fault our media sucks its the retailers!=ad lib"

All of it is here.


Ah modern gaming its like modern film only the watering down of fiction and characters is replaced with shallow and watered down mechanics, gimmicks and shiny-er "people".
