Rant: GameStop Selling Open Games as New

Justin McBride for The Mind of Game writes - "You know what I hate? Well, if you’re reading this, you’ve probably already guessed from the title. In case you haven’t, what I hate is the fact that GameStop sells opened display copies as new and for the same price as unopened shrinkwrapped copies. That infuriates me to no end and is one of the main reasons why I haven’t shopped there in months.

In particular, GameStop decided to drop the price of Atlus’ Persona 4 Arena fighting game from $50 to $20, new. I’d heard good things about the game from a few of my Persona fan friends so I decided to grab a copy while it was on sale. I opened GameStop’s web page, got them to hold a copy and drove about 15 minutes out of my way (one way) to the local GameStop that had a copy for the Xbox 360. When I got there and told the guy I was picking up an online order, he opened a display case and pulled out an already opened display copy of the game" (Culture, GameStop, Industry)
