The opposite happened to me last year. I got an extra game in my bag and had to return it. It was kind of awkward...
I know it makes me a terrible person, but I probably would have kept it. I always return things to individual people, small businesses, or if I think it'll come out of an already underpaid employee's pay. However, I have very little respect for the sanctity of GameStop's loss allowance since you so rarely get a chance to screw the people that screw you so often. Assuming it was a large chain store that makes 500% profit on used games without paying the developers their rightful cut. Rationalization of behavior complete.
34- As a former GameStop employee, I can personally relate/agree that it is a company that makes a shameful amount of profit off of other people's used games. And I don't have much sympathy for it, or any, large corporation when it comes to one game vs. their bottom line. But if it was a GameStop OP went to, I would ask that you all think about the individuals working at the store. When things go missing, corporate tends to hold the employees of that store, and especially the managers, at fault. If stuff is constantly having to be written off, they will write up, or even fire, those that work there. So I would say even though I don't care about GameStop as a whole, I would go back and return the game because I wouldn't want the employee who made the mistake of giving it to me to get in trouble or fired. Or anyone else. If, due to lack of training or effort, too many things get mistakenly given out, those people's jobs are in jeopardy!
Its like McDonalds, I guess you always have to check what you bought before you leave, because if you try to go back with a problem, youre gonna have some sort of an issue. So, Op, did you get the game back?
If anything, i'd argue he was scamming YOU, and knew it. He could've easily checked the stock list vs the number of available discs...
In most Stores where I am (UK), stores keep the cases on the shelves and the manuals/discs rubberbanded together in draws behind the desk. I think mostly to prevent people stealing them. The only time the game is on the shelf sealed is when it's so crap or cheap they don't care if you steal it anyway.
I don't know who the f*** would go to that much effort to get a retorted piece of sh*t game... I'm sure that activision realized that the game was just that terrible and didn't want to have to force other people to force them selves to play it because they think they look cool while doing so, so they decided to just make the boxes
#35 I'm sorry, but once anything is sold to another individual as used, no money needs to go back to the original manufacturer. The manufacturer doesn't "deserve" a cut. You wouldn't call up Dodge upon selling your car to a friend to give them their fair share, since they paid a group of South American laborers $0.50 an hour to make it four years ago.
I had this happen, but with an old game, fable 2, I brought the special edition recently, it was two disc, game on one, special features on the other, luckily the cashiers where I am are pretty good and he gave me the game disc without even needing my receipt
That's one reason it's great being a PC gamer; you can just download games without a risk of purchase issues like that.
