Call me naïve, but even after all of these years I'm still not 100% sure why the "Gamestop ban" is such a significant thing. Keep in mind I'm not a big trader and not privy to a lot of the "flip" situations that go down. If it were the "flip" people that were the only ones getting banned, to some degree I could understand it.
The point I am really trying to get at here is that I often hear of people being banned simply for trading in "a lot" of games. And that's the part I don't understand. Gamestop acts as if they WANT you to trade in stuff all the time. Every time you go in there they ask if you have trades, they encourage trades when they advertise new games, and they even offer promotions for trading in games. So why is it that if I were to decide to unload my collection one day, they would "ban" me simply for trading in "too much" stuff? It doesn't make much sense to me. If they are going to sell everything I trade in for profit, why would they cut themselves off from that opportunity? Why would they care that I woke up one day and decided to unload my entire collection of 200 PS4 games? Why do they feel the need to suddenly punish me for doing what they are asking me to do? I keep hearing about people getting banned after reaching a certain credit or profit margin. Are they automatically assuming the games are stolen when the margin gets too high? I guess this may be a dumb question but someone please enlighten me.
