    Dont know. Why dont you ask them? I know in the UK, themarket for s/h games dropped compared to the overall turnover for console games, although Im not sure if this is chicken and egg or egg and chicken. There are a few stores such as cex that have a few more, but still, its a dying place :)

    I wondered this myself a few years ago, and actually asked someone in what was EB Games. They said it was due to the EULA's of each game. Most of these expressly forbid resale of the games, some dont. Therefore, to avoid any confusion or problems, they dont do second hand PC games.

    Although, another logical reason is that you could buy a game, copy the CD, then save the key somewhere safe, then sell it back.
