Buying games digitally has become more popular over the years, but some people are hesitant to jump on the bandwagon because they cannot trade-in games that they have bought for new ones. This might change based on a recent survey that Microsoft put out.

As noted be a user on NeoGAF, Microsoft may have found a solution for gamers that want to trade-in their old digital games for new stuff. However, their proposal may not come across as something that will be popular just yet.

The question they asked was:If the console digital games store for the console you owned offered customers the option to “sell back” their digital games to the store for 10% of the purchase price in store credit, would you be interested in that offer?

It sounds like a great idea, but the only problem is that 10% seems a little too low. A new game costs $59.99 in North America so trading it back to get only $5.99 of digital store credit seems kind of stingy. Even Gamestop offers more money than that for new releases.

It’s safe to say that a large number of people would be interested in the idea if the trade-in value was a little higher. Hopefully Microsoft rethinks their strategy when they decide to go further with this.
