Today a minor store known as Gameware KG in Austria stopped selling the Xbox One Console after Microsoft released the news on the Xbox Game Pass. According to the store they said “If you wanna do business yourself, then do it alone.” Meaning they were upset by the news of adding new games to the pass. While the Pass has received positive feedback, many question if this is just the beginning.
GameStop’s stock prices fell $1.50 after brokers realized the impending danger of the Pass. If the Austrian store stopped selling them, how long before other stores stop as well. Could this mean that resellers like GameStop go out of business? In my opinion it’s too early to tell. Hopefully this brings in a new era of gaming where you won’t be ripped of for a game you didn’t like and wanna return.
