Gutted = used. As someone stated before GS employees can check out gutted games and play them. If they have been played before its used regardless of the condition and no one should be paying the full price for game that have been played by others. That is the definition of a used game. we have the right as consumers to refuse GS or why not just price match at BB. GS has been pulling this crap for years but you always have the option to say NO! NO! NO! (end rant)
To keep on topic, this is one of the better fighting games on the market and though it has a persona veneer, the blaz blue blue print is all over this game .
This is the truth. When I worked there, I didn't take games out so that I could still say they were new, and never played. I always said they should make it one gut copy or just inserts for the games, and revert the one copy to used if someone "rented" it from the store. That, of course, fell on deaf ears.
That being said, I still would get a gutted copy if they had it, considering it's a 1 dollar difference(not counting PUR) and the idea that no one probably rented it(at least near me, they all seem like they aren't into RPGs/fighting games that much).
