Yeah, that's why I pretty much exclusively buy my games online... well that and the closest EB games has an employee with the largest manboobs I've ever seen. They jiggle when he talks. No thank you.
I once got into an argument with a Gamestop employee when Final Fantasy XI came out onthe PS2. She wouldn't sell me a copy unless I bought a keyboard with it, because she was tired of grouping with people who didn't have them. WTF?! Even after I calmly explained to her that I had a USB keyboard at home, and didn't need to spend $25 on a useless POS she refused the sale. From that day on I haven't stepped foot in a gamestop.
