I also got the last "new" copy of Lego:HP 5-7. It was an open copy which really does not bother me except for the fact they throw it into this sealed bag and pretend like it was new all along. The least they could do it treat it as a used copy for return purposes.
I asked for a sealed copy of Dead Island Game of the Year yesterday and the guy was like what is this sealed game you speak of...He actually got one out of the drawer behind him after he tried to sell me a "new" unwrapped one. I can't think of another store that opens everything then sells it as new.
I don't understand why GameStop just doesn't have a page on their website (like Best Buy does for instance) that states their TIVs. I mean TIVs are supposed to be the same for all branches, right? By not disclosing it to the public on their site, it gives shady GS managers/employees the opportunity to screw over unwitting customers!
From my experience, they love to take in all your games then give you the final trade-in value after any promos so it looks as if you are getting more than you are. Hey, you got $78.25 in credit, not thinking about you just traded in 20 games. Of course, I always tell them to give me the values individually but there are others that look at their receipt afterwards and see the $1.00 or $2.00 trades they wouldn't have made if they knew the values ahead of time.

I guess you're better off trading in the games disc-only seperately, hehe.
I thought about doing this with Red Dead Redemption Game of the Year Editon to get back more separately but they have the discs labeled "Game of the Year Disc 1 and Disc 2" so I'm guessing they would have to both?
