Ripten asks, do retailers look the other way regarding console "trade-ins" more often than not? Scary, but the answer may be yes.
Let me tell you something Joe Rogan. I smoke rock!!! Shazam!!!
She can run a crack cocaine business like Tony Montana. =P
"Say hello, to my little friend" Teh PS3.
Seriously though, I see crackheads all the time at my local Gamestop trying to trade in all kinds of systems and games that you know that they stole. A while back one of my friends house got broken into and his 360 stolen. It was later found at Gamestop and the guy who stole it(meth addict)got arrested.
Agreed this is not news like people have said it happens all the time
It should not be happening, that is the point.
Oh my god... Well Nostradavis. Good read
He told the woman that they could not accept unopened merchandise without a receipt (good so far) and then quietly suggests she walk back into the mall and open it if she would like to sell it (holy sh*t batman).
Your original comment before you changed it to a bunch of question marks was that this story is BS and you wish you could find a place that would still let you trade in your games for money.
My response to that is that there are places that do just that. Stores like GameStop and EB Games make a pretty penny by taking your games and systems pretty much no questions asked for pennies on the dollar then turning around and selling them for nearly full price.
Knowingly accepting a stolen item is wrong, giving and obvious drug addict money for that item is wrong, everything about this is wrong.
Dam drug users. EB should do back ground checks of all their customers? making sure people with only the cleanest records can play and sell video games?. Pun; not trying to bust ballzzzzzz.
RE: the edit, I take back busting your b**ls about it.
The other stuff though, I can't leave alone. It is flat out wrong in my opinion.
with trading a games console for an 8 ball
for an 8 ball. But this encourages addicts to steal games and systems knowing EB/gamestop is an easy fence.
Thats 80 thousand soldiers at that time there was only 70 thousand useres in america, it doubled over night
Wake up america
