Every one who buys a copy of the game is entitled to receive the OnLive coupon. Who gave Gamestop the rights to break the sealing, remove a coupon that's rightly yours and sell them as brand new 'untampered' copies?
Exactly that. Moreoever, since they opened them they should re-sell them as used copies (meaning the price should be lower) and not as brand new ones!
Hopefully this will put an end to Gamestop allowing the Employees to "test" new games for a week, then bring them back to the store and still sell them as new
Doubt it :P
Square Enix should apologize for the last decade.
"Square Enix apologizes to Gamestop... wait, what?" I don't see what the big deal is. Just seems that instead of trying to make a bad situation worse, they seem to be taking the high road. I very well could be wrong.
On one hand, they want to have Gamestop on their side in order to sell more units (and we know that gaming is business these days). On the other hand though, its inexcusable (from the customers' perspective)
