    Why does EB Games sell Wii games in unsealed cases?

    Why does EB Games sell Wii games in unsealed cases?
    (actually... this also applies to games for other consoles)

    I got a $100 gift card for EB Games and I was planning to
    use it for some Wii games. I've never been to EB Games
    until today, so I was kind of surprised that all the game
    cases were open....

    Does their sister store, Gamestop, sell games the same
    way? (also never been to one)

    Thanks!

    You sure it was all the game cases and not only a selective few? It's probably one copy of each, and they just do that to put it in their Kiosks.

    well... I'm not sure... Like I said, I've never been to EB
    Games.

    I was only looking at two games, Red Steel and Zelda.
    They had several open cases of each game on the wall.
    When I told the guy that I want to buy those, he remove
    two cases from the wall and started looking for the discs
    in a disc storage box. He then put the discs in the cases
    and put a seal on it. It was $49.99 each... I asked him
    if he had them in unopned cases and he just said "no, we
    don't do that here..." ??? I said "no, thank you"
    and left the store....

    Guess I'll save the $100 gift card that I have for Wii points
    and/or Wii accessories...

    I find it hard to buy games like that... Or am I the only
    who prefer "virgin" unopened cases? I drove down
    the street and bought those games at BestBuy instead.
    (with the BB coupon, it was only $44.99 per Wii game)

    They probably wanted to sell you one from the kiosk, or that could of always been the last copy. I don't work there, so I don't know, but if we have one copy left and it's the store copy, we let them know.

    Mine were in the plastic wrap, but didnt have the seal stickies on the edges...
    If the Xbox 360 console falls and hits someone, especially a small child, it could cause serious injury.

    i dont think any Wii games have the stickies. when i picked up my Wii at target, none of the games in the Wii section had security stickers nor did my copy of zelda that i got a GameCrazy (they dont open the games and take out the discs unless its the stores demo copy which if thats the last one, they sell for $5 cheaper with a free disc buff)

    All the Cube games I get from EB are empty boxes stacked on the wall. When you take it to the counter they take our discs from disc sleeves in a drawer, and stick them in the case. I didn't realise there was any other way.

    Maybe that's just Australia.

    Well in Game(uk) you pick up an empty box off the shelf, take it to the counter and they get the CD and Manual out of the drawers behind them, they're all brand new etc it just, as has been mentioned, stops people stealing them and doing a runner. I've never seen a games shop that does this differently, HMV may be different but I don't buy games from there.
