DonateGames.Org Accepts Game Donations And Sells Them To Benefit Sick PeopleYesterday, I posted a video of some of the top game developers addressing the issue of used-game sales. A lot of you were disappointed at the various stances taken in the video. The used-games issue can be a dirty one. Sorting out "who's right" between consumers, retailers, developers, and publishers is a tough task. Now let's throw a charity into the mix! Ars Technica has reported on a charity that accepts used games and resells them for the benefit of those suffering from life-threatening diseases.

"Fittingly called DonateGames.org, gamers can send unwanted games to the charity's headquarters in Aliso Viejo, CA in exchange for a tax deductible receipt. From there the charity hopes players will buy a different game from their online store, then rinse and repeat."

Gamestop has shown how lucrative selling used games can be. If DonateGames.org gets a good amount of donations, it can make a ton of money for a good cause. While developers and publishers are irked that they don't see any money from used-game sales, I don't think any of them will begrudge a charity for exploiting this model.

Anyone out there interested in donating games? Would you prefer buying used games from a charity instead of a traditional retailer?
