ChoiceStriker Posted September 3, 2003 Report Share Posted September 3, 2003 Unbelievable. I just got back from GameStop, where I tried to buy a copy of Gitaroo Man (my girlfriend really likes 326, the artist who designed the characters). Anyway, GameStop had a "NEW" copy for $19.99 on the shelf, so I brought it to the counter to purchase it. The clerk swipes my credit card and prints the receipt before I can even see the game, but I don't sign it yet. She turns around and starts digging through the games in the little sleeves, so I immediately know it's already been opened. This happened to me the other day when I wanted to buy Bombastic, but I was okay with that because I was having a really hard time finding a copy, and everything (cover insert, instructions, game disc) was present and in perfectly new condition). Well, when she finally finds the game and sticks it in the case that I took straight off the shelf, the first thing I do is open it and look at the disc itself. Fingerprints and specks of stuff all over it. Definitely NOT new. Then I ask if there are instructions for it. Nope. There's not even a full cover insert, for Christ's sake, and the half of it that is there looks like it's been printed off a crappy inkjet printer. And she was going to sell this to me as NEW! Needless to say, I didn't buy the thing. But my card was still charged and I have to wait for the transaction to be voided out. This really pisses me off! How the hell can they sell me something that's obviously been used, at a new price, without all the parts even being there! This has to be illegal! I realize they just settled a class action lawsuit for this practice, but they're obviously still doing this. Sorry, I just had to vent. Also, they pissed me off recently by trying to tell me they wouldn't take back a used SNES I bought but never even took out of the shrink wrap. I got my money back, but Jesus, what kind of fucking store refuses to take back an UNOPENED item?! Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
