Why not to be in the Video Game retail industry.

Nice little comment from a Tesco boss on MCV:

“…a retailer looks at key factors like market growth, margin, cost to serve and ease of operation, shrink risk, returns and exit protection, and broader traffic and spend driving properties.

Video games currently scores poorly on every one.”

So. That bodes well. :(

    I’m sure that another huge hassle is how quickly merchandise devalues. A year old game might devalue 70%. You wouldn’t see that in more traditional wares like household goods, etc.
