Interim CEO Patrick Bach weighs ups and downs of next-gen used game block
A next-generation used games block would be a mixed bag for consumers, says Dice interim CEO and executive producer Patrick Bach.
"Yeah, I heard about that. I think that can be a win and a loss," he told CVG.
"I think it's a loss if it only means that you will be able to get fewer games for the same money. But in theory you could see it the other way, because a lot of companies making games today are struggling based on second-hand sales."
Bach thinks that though customers would lose out on price-point, they would benefit from an industry more capable of taking finacial risks.
"If you think there are too few new IPs on the market, no one can take that risk if their game is at risk of being resold too many times."
