Either Gamestop ripping people off or Ouya Inc lost their damn mind thinking $50 for $99 would be a good I idea.

That's the MSRP. It's the same on Amazon.

Lol this video.. I like how the person filming it was acting like he was on her side and she was too naive/stupid to realize the implications of this doing the rounds on the internet.

She will either be sacked or forced to quit from all the hate she'll probably get from viewers who recognize her. Either way, the other employees will be happy no doubt, she seems quite stuck up and I sure as hell wouldn't want her as my boss.

She already got fired

Are you sure because in that article it says gamestop are still looking into it.

Piece says GS is still looking into ev erything, and no decision yet.

She sank to his level and was she was reveling in it so no sympathy, there are times it is best just to keep you mouth shut and people be knobs!

Would she have been so lippy had Trevor came in for his copy?

Respectful move by GameStop:

"Regarding the GTA V Midnight Release Video: We are aware of this incident and are currently investigating the situation. We regret that this happened, as we strive to ensure all customers receive a great experience when visiting our stores," the company wrote. "We would like to extend an apology to the affected customer as well as any other customer that was offended by this event."

is it common for gamestop to ask for photo i.d? cant remember being asked myself

Yeah, especially for GTA V. We never had to ID for a reserve until lately with GTA V. Also if the game is fully paid off you need to see an ID so that the game doesn't go to the wrong person for free. But yeah ID if you're unsure, granted she handled this horribly.

Wait, I preorder shit all the time from my local GS, and I don't they never ask me for photo i.d when I go for it. Wtf... But then again I am a recurring customer.

I refuse to go into my local Gamestop for a similar situation regarding the midnight release of the last COD. Not the first time they did an absolutely horrible job when it came to a midnight release. Walmart does midnight releases as well with a lot less headache and they usually will give out free stuff while you're waiting.

Not to mention exploitation of her work-wise with a 50+ hours a week while being paid a measly salary for only 40 hours a week. Slavery or serfdom?

I'm glad they ID, especially for all credit card transactions.
