Green Man targets digital game-trading

"Significant royalties" will keep pubs quiet.

New company Green Man Gaming has said it wants to offer pre-owned digital games for sale.

The frowns of publishers will be ironed out by ensuring "substantial remuneration" every time a used file is sold, and Green Man intends to have a beefy catalogue of over 400 games available at Q1 2010 launch. Its next milestone will be 2000 games by the end of the year.

"Previously the minute you had paid and downloaded your game it had no resale value," said Gian Luzio, COO of Green Man Gaming. "This is extremely expensive for the gamer and does not encourage the consumer to try new genres or franchises. Our leading edge technology gives downloaded games a value that gamers can trade-in at any time."

"We will pay significant royalties to the publisher each time the game is traded in perpetuity."
