Here is a little story about my experience with Gamestop today:
I purchased Deep Labrynth (yesterday) used from Gamestop for $29.99. It was probably the worst DS game I've ever played, so I decided to return it and get another.
Anywho, I went back to the store the next day and tried to exchange it. I saw Megaman ZX NEW for $29.99. I took the case off the rack, and brought it to the register. The cashier got the game from the drawer and gave it to me. I figure if something is new, it should be sealed right? Anywho, I walk out, go to my bus stop, pop the game, in, and then I noticed the "continue" selection was lit. I selected it and low and behold, there was a save! If something is NEW shouldn't it be wiped clean?
I walked all the way back to the Gamestop and told the guy that I wanted a sealed copy because the one I got was obviously used. He informed me that some of the employees play the games once they get them in. He checked his log book and had no record of anyone playing it. That's fishy. He said that I should just wipe it clean. I'm NOT going to pay a new price for a used game. Oh and I forgot with tax, the game came out to $32 somethin.
Anyway, I decided to get Rocketslime which was a little more expensive ($34.99). It came out to $37 somethin. He only credited $30 of my purchase, and not the tax from the previous purchase. Which means I had to play $7. That's a total of $9 to make a damn exchange! It's retarded.
This time I got an actual sealed copy.
It's fishy as hell. If a game is played, regardless if it's an employee, IT'S USED!
I REFUSE to purchase anything used from EB games/ Gamestop unless it's used, or new that's sealed. This is nonsense.
Sorry I had to rant.
