Used Games, Video Focus Of Wal-Mart, Best Buy

Just weeks after Wal-Mart made a splash with its plans to deploy kiosks that could accept and then pay for used games and videos, Best Buy is now looking to do the same thing with the same kiosks.

But Best Buy's announcement indicates they'll be doing Wal-Mart one better as their kiosk will "immediately issue a voucher that is instantly redeemable for a Best Buy gift card." Wal-Mart said they'd consider integrating gift cards eventually. Still, if the voucher is low tech enough, the deployment difference can be quite trivial.
