I didn't want to take my chances with that (though I was curious to see what would be inside!) and luckily I found one at GS a few days later and returned the unopened Fry's copy (it was the only one they had).
Just a follow-up on Fry's re-sealing of games. Today I got a Constantine and Room Zoom to trade in at Gamerush. They had a bunch of Room Zoom for $4.90, but they had one copy for $4.41 that had obviously been re-sealed and had a sticker saying that it was a returned item. I was curious, plus I'm a cheap-ass, so I got the 49 cent discounted one since I was just going to trade it in anyway. I made sure to open it right at the register (after I paid of course) in case the game was missing or something. It was there and the manual was there - but the game was obviously USED. Good enough condition to trade in but I would have been pissed if it was for my own use. What's up with that? Fry's doesn't take opened software unless it is defective, right? And if that was the case, why would they resell it...
I'm *really* glad I returned that La Pucelle a few weeks ago! That one wasn't even discounted or stickered differently.
On a different topic... they still had a copy of RE2 for GC for $34.99 on the shelf - it has been there for several days. Also, I noticed that the Disgaea's are finally gone - and I was just about tempted to get one ($50 though). Now I've got to wait for one to show up at Gamerush - I know, not likely but I did get a Suikoden III there a few weeks ago.
