Gamestop doing illegal business?

Morons.  I've been saying this for years but nobody cares.  I just don't shop there anymore.  I would rather spend my money at best buy, another store I despise for the treatment I got there a few times.  (In fact, I bought a game from best buy last night, surprise surprise).

I hope GS suffers for this, although I do appreciate one of the commenter's note.
"To be fair to some employees, while this is in fact the company policy, not all employees do it. My buddy manages a store and he only allows the people in his store to check out used copies of games. He's always thought it was crazy to be able to check out a new copy of a game, hence why he's never done it."

Too bad they all weren't like that.  It's not like it matters anyway, a bunch of people buy a brand new game that came out like, the day before, then return it cause they don't like it.  Why not let them take THOSE home.  GS really gets on my nerves for doing stuff like this.

Whenever I buy games at GS they're the used ones anyway, so you kind of get what you expect regardless...

well I'd still go to GS cause I get more buck for my bang.

$2.50 for a near-mint condition copy of FFVII I think not.

lol.  "We're looking into things."

Sounds more like "We're trying to cover our butts at the moment, please hold while we find a legitimate excuse"

Now kotaku can take solace in the fact that they look like a whistleblower organization.  XD

I'm going out to buy Star Ocean: Second Evolution tomorrow and I was looking and GS not only are rude but they don't even carry it, luckily a best buy right across the street does.
