of course they get money from us selling our games to them
but at the gamestop i go to they are very nice and they knew me preatty well since i been going there alot for like 5 years now and they still got the same employess they never ask me to reserve a game to get a membership or none of that but i did get the membership on my own wil ;-)
and i know they rip you off on games you sell to them for example you buy a gaame for 60$ and sell it for 20-38$ what would you rather have a game that is just sitting around or the 20-38$ you get in trade ill take the trade in value, Gamestop aint that but but hey it must just be me because i been shoping in the same gamestop for 5 years and runnig :-D My 2 Cents

I ended up going to GameStop and got it on launch day.
