Wow, that's pretty shitty of them. One of them earlier tried to sell me a gutted copy of Xenoblade Chronicles and say this is new. I told them it's not sealed and walked off.


I called my GameStop trying to find a copy of Walking Dead on the 360 because I knew I was trading games in today and wanted to buy something. They told me they had one copy and held it for me. I got there, traded in my games and used my credit on walking dead and a couple points cards.

I didn't realize until I got home that my copy of walking dead wasn't sealed and was the off the shelf copy. They had it all bagged up and ready for me before I paid because they knew I was coming.

I'm not really really pissed cuz I knew I was gonna play it, but that's really not new.... And I don't know if there is anything extra missing from inside the box.

Idk if I wanna call them and bitch or what? They shouldn't be able to charge full price for that...

Sometimes they don't even have the display case for the new games. Don't let this happen to you:

Traded a few games from BF that I beat for what I paid for them and then some extra for the gas/hassle. Not a bad way to play games for free, or get paid for playing.

Well I sure hope I don't have any issues. I just think it's bullshit to sell me an opened game as new, and charge me full price. I know the game is fine, but knowing that I will get the SAME thing from AWD for $22 I can't keep the GameStop copy. If I would have seen the copy opened when I paid I probably would have refused it.

If they require a game to be unopened and a receipt to return it you can't sell an opened game as "new".

I hate BS like that and Dbag employees that go out of their way to find something wrong with a disc.

Same thing Happened to me with Time Crisis Razing Storm. Bought it used from them for move but never played, employee tried to tack a fee on....I said give me my game and walked out took it to the other GS down the road and traded it in no problem.

In my experience employees that do these acts are new recently hired ones. I try to stay away from those

I just want to thank everyone who posted here because I would have had no idea about this sale. I traded for the first time in about 3 years at Gamestop (some extra games I had gotten really cheap over the last year) and ended up with about $150 in credit. I picked up a bunch of iTunes gift cards and enough Wii U / 3DS Cards to get Just Dance 4 for Wii U (digitally) and most of Paper Mario: Sticker Star. Really appreciate it guys :).

Like I said, I would have, but it was being flipped directly to Best Buy. That said, I happily did the survey blasting them over it.

Here's another nice little service they add (or at least they previously did) to their "new" games; the employees can take them home to play and bring them back to sell as new....
