I don't shop at LameStop anymore because all the employees there are big Sony fanboys who keep trying to convince me to buy a Ps3. Which is ridiciulous lol.

I don't shop there simply because it's easier (and cheaper) to order stuff online through Amazon or elsewhere.

Well, they are not PS3 fanboys, they are being honest with you...

When your mom tells you poopy boy don't mess with guys cuz you are

not homo, do you think she is a STRAIGHT Fanboy or do you think she is right ?

I understand stores need to make money, but it's pretty obnoxious to charge like $200 for a HDMI cable taht you can get online for $10.

There's a difference between making a profit and exploiting consumer ignorance.

I did know that Gamestop employees could check out games, but I didn't know they took NEW games displayed on the shelf. But I figured they weren't really NEW since they were already opened and the disc was in a sleeve in a drawer. I sorta put two and two together. Doesn't bother me.

As long as the game works, I don't care.

but dont you think that defeats the whole purpose of New and Pre-owned....they get an early taste of all the games coming out...they get to play them for who knows how long and then bring them back and still sell them at $60....i feel like thats unfair to consumers and publishers should really voice their opinions on this...there is a difference between owning the IP and owning the copies themselves...retailers like GS have too much lee-way IMO when it comes to new releases
