GameStop Interested in Digital Resales

GameSpot has an interesting quote from GameStop CEO Paul Raines, who describes their interest in getting into the (currently nonexistent) market for selling pre-owned digital content. "Its very interesting," he said. "There are some technologies out there in Europe, and weve looked at a couple that are involved. Were interested; its not a meaningful business yet. Right now were not seeing that as a huge market, but I think were on the leading edge. There are a few companies, a few start-ups, out there that weve talked to that are doing this."

Less ridiculous an argument than comparing a piece of software that costs as much as a single meal on sale, to the 2nd (or most) valuable thing people own, other than a house/flat? Really?

Huh? The car thing was just an example of one of the billions of things you can buy/sell used. *but for some reason video games are exempt from it...for now*

So far I have not seen a SINGLE valid argument for not being able to resell video games, other than "The developer makes less money". Every developer or manufacturer of ANYTHING would make more money if people could ONLY buy new. But that would be ridiculous right? That's why this entire argument is hypocritical.
