Yet G$ can still rip off people, lie, cheat, and monopolize the market.

So after years of Gamestop being an unchecked pawnshop with no regulation somebody is finally cracking down? The sad part is, Gamestop knew this was coming sooner or later and just decided to deal with it when the time came.

The sad part is that this still won't prevent them from trying to ram pre-orders and garbage subscriptions down your throat or treating their employees like garbage for not doing a good enough job screwing customers out of money.

You know, now that you mention it gamestop DOES look more like a pawn shop than a reputable game dealership. I think I will either buy my games at Walmart or another online store.
