    I've never bought a game from gamestop, ebgames, or any game store that sells games only. Walmart and Futureshop (Best Buy) for me

    My games are always sealed from Gamestop. They have display cases out so you can browse the games, then they give you a sealed one from the back. :dunno:

    I think there was one time where I had to get the display case because it was their last copy, but that's it.

    I used to work there a couple years ago, and whenever we checked out something from the store, it was always USED. We never checked out NEW merchandise from the store cause that is apparently not cool with the company.

    This just adds to the reasons I refuse to purchase ANYTHING at Gamestop. Even if it is a good deal.

    I've only had 1 problem with my local Gamestop and both the store manager and the corporate CSR went above and beyond the call of duty to remedy the situation. Ended up getting the pre-order item I wanted after the local store called around to find an extra and corporate gave me free overnight shipping for a future online purchase. Any big box retail store (Walmart, Target, Best Buy) would have told me "tough luck".

    so you bought an opened game as "new" and paid full price for an open game....its not new unless its sealed.

    who knows what they do with the disks... they do play games, and they do showcase games...how do you know the one you bought wasnt swapped with the one in the showcase..how do you know it hasnt been shown in that case for 5 days of non-stop use..

    shits used if its opened.

    it is impossible to know..i agree. but if they are going to sell something as new, it should be 100% new.

    i cant argue what they use the disk for, but if it is labeled as NEW, it should not be opened, and it should not be the same price as something sealed.

    It was always been like this. It just needs more press exposure so they can finally sue those assholes.

    the gamestops around here have print outs of the cover in generic game boxes. they don't open new games for display.

    in multiple locations near me, they open new games for display and you bring the case off the display racks to them when you want to buy something. then they ring you up and they put the disk inside the case your brought them.

    not for all games, but a lot of them.

    I stopped buying games from Gamestop in 2007.
