Is it possible that GameStop really puts used games as new? I know we say they are gutted and whatnot, and that they open the cases but the discs are not used. However, I just came to this crazy realization today after seeing a copy of DNF Duel that I think I traded in... Hear me out.
A few months ago when they had DNF Duel for $5 used on PS5, I was able to snag a copy and trade it in to another GameStop for over $20. The next day I went to rebuy it because (being a CAG) I was going to trade it back in to another GameStop. However, it was sold out and they had a single new copy. Here's the crazy thing, I remember browsing the GameStop and they never had a new copy the day before. There is no way in hell that they get one new copy and the used copy sold out within 24 hours.
I can't believe it took me months to realize this. How does the GameStop system work, is it really possible to convert the used game to new like I'm imagining it happened?
