It's not about "wrong", its about being in that grey area of customer service where they have the right to either help or hinder the customer, and Gamestop's default option is almost always the latter. I gave them everything needed to hook up a PS3; they no doubt have dozens of 99 cent cables laying around the warehouse where the PS3 will be sent to be fixed. It would have made more sense for them to just take the HDMI, as I wasn't asking or expecting to get the $4.40 separate trade credit for it - they sell those used in store for 17.99.
Still, I'm coming off as bitter when I'm not really that bothered in the grand scheme of things. I couldn't have gotten $95 for a broken system anywhere else.
Deal is over now - time for the graveyard.
