I dont get it, i was gonna trade games in at gamestop and get Dues Ex 2 Onlive to get the free micro console, but my gamestop told me they didn't even know what Onlive was. :(

The picture in the article cracks me up. It's like some piece of intel from the USSR in the 80s, or something.

Anyway, fuck Gamestop.

Really Gamestop....I mean Really?

I typically defend Gamestop whenever they're brought under unjust attack, but in this case, I hope hell is raised over this, they bloody deserve it.

If I don`t buy this off of steam then I will be getting this off of amazon anyway, this is very low of gamestop.

GameStop should remove the manuals from the new games as well, and maybe scuff up the discs just a bit. Also, remove any packed-in DLC codes. That way, they can truly claim that used is as good as new... at GameStop.

Otherwise, aren't they competing with their own largest revenue stream? They don't want new sales knocking their used profits!
