Not For Resale is a documentary feature film that examines the decline of physical media in the video game industry and the rise of digital distribution. Changing technology has affected everything from secondhand mom & pop retail stores to independent game developers. As the way we fundamentally interact with media moves inevitably into the future, new opportunities arise.
But what gets left behind?
Not For Resale tells the story of the rise of digital distribution and the decline of physical media, and how it’s upended the video game industry.
From the developers who make the games, to the independent retailers who sell them, and to the consumers who buy them, Not For Resale explores how changing the way we consume the games we love changes lives and the whole multi-billion dollar industry.
