19:18 - Redn1ght I only buy books new if I can easily find them from a certain regional store which usually is cheaper than Ebay. :)
19:18 - Ilham Weird, in France most of the record stores that aren't Virgin/Fnac almost only sell second hand.
19:17 - Zaphod While the ones that did went bankrupt, might I add.
19:16 - !J.O.O.E.! I can't speak for music stores though, don't know anything about that, but I imagine there might be a similar issue there.
19:16 - Zaphod Ilham, it seems strange then that the only remaining record stores in Belgium that I know of have no second hand whatsoever.
19:15 - !J.O.O.E.! The issue with that though is that, say, video game stores will emphasise second hand buying, even unscrupulously putting the prices up on games that are rare. It's a big issue with some of the bigger outlets and hurts developers.
19:14 - Zaphod Well, yeah, I haven't bought any recent games. None of them seem worthwhile.
