    100% of Gamestops should go out of business.

    In the shop I work in, which shall remain nameless, the sheer volume of pre-owned sales is sickening. I occasionally try to explain to customers just how detrimental to the industry it is; most of them aren't even aware that no profit goes to the publisher or the developer. I frequently bin additional content and online passes that packaged as an incentive to consumers to buy a new game before the pre-owned copy goes on the shelf, as a lot of the time they return unused. I guess it's only a matter of time before this is made illegal, or some form of agreement is reached with the industry. If retailers keep on going this way, I imagine it will get to the point where publishers are forced to release everything online and seriously f*ck them. And rightly so.

    Step 1: Offer an overpowered character/weapon/armor suit to customers that pre-order a game from you. This "bonus" will allow them to complete the game much faster Step 2: Purchase said game back from the customer 2-3 weeks later for a few bucks Step 3: Sell said game used for $55.99 instead of $59.99 Step 4: Repeat

    I really don't have a problem with gamestop, I mean, what's really wrong with buying a cheap copy of a game? I'm just not the dumb one selling my games to them, not to say I haven't but I don't.

    This is a surprise? Also, I like Gamestop. The employees are nice to me, especially since I have a Power-Up Rewards card, they don't push preorders on me, and they're not jerks. Also, where else would you find some games like Ico or SoTC in a store? Some people don't wanna deal with shipping, you know. (plus, they have the largest amount of GCN or GBA games around.

    I only go to GameStop because I like walk-in stores over online stores. Besides, since I frequent the same ones regularly, the employees aren't usually jerks to me. I've gotten loads of old Gamecube and GBA stuff from there...

    What's the difference between Gamestop and pirates? Pirates don't make a profit. This is kind of sickening really.
