Well, it's the clerk's responsibility to check the game's case for any dangerous, or offensive material. Honestly, If I was mother, I would still purchase used games for my child, but I would makes sure to check the case first. There's no need to flip out and shun used games from yourself.
I heard somethin similar to this. A fear years ago this kid got a psp from wal-mart and he saw some pornographic pictures on the psp. Im not sure if it was used or new, probably new. This was a couple of days ago too but the weird part is when someone sells used games, gamestop is suppose to look in the cover to check the conditions of the cd and see if the manual was in there. Also there are suppose to look in there when someone buys it but it looks like they didnt but why?
Sometime GS employes do check the contnents of the item the person is selling them...sometimes the're tired and wanna go home and blow up s#!t in fallout 9001 or twit their tiwts on facepalmbook. Sad isin't...
I remember about 3 years ago when I bought KHII used ata store called Play 'N Trade, the employe was checking the cover inside out and the instruction manual... for 3 minintes.
I asked "Curious to see what the games like?", he replied "We're required to check the innerpackage contents of all used material for "stuff that dosen't belong" before sale".
So I asked "'Ya mean like game/movie in the wrong case?", then he said "Not just that, but questionable material like racial, graphic, and pornographic". He said a while back there was a copy of KHI that was sold had drawn porno images, ina piece of paper in a envlope behind the instruction manual. The customer (a 46yr old who bought it for his son) was furious and made threats to sue them, but then they gave him 2 free PS2 games and a memory card, then he walked away and was never seen again.
Precisely, that's what I'm wondering.
Human error is expected. And they're used games, after all. Those guys knew what they were getting themselves into.
Yeah, clearly buying used games that profits Gamestop instead of new games that profits the GAMING INDUSTRY helps the GAMING INDUSTRY.
God I ****ing hate Gamestop. For their on occasion **** employees (you know, the kind of teenage douche bag reject McDonalds and grocery stores get often), their overly high used game prices and other rip-off merchandise, and stupid occurrences like this. Alone, none of these problems are a reason to hate a company. Together, they're all the reason the way I see it. =/
The only thing good about Gamestop is working at one. :lol:
Ahah, I remember hearing about that the day it happened.
things like this though rare, still happen...... i remember in the 90's a spate of internet dares which went round the globe..... ranging from sticking porn inside normal magazines..... to gluing shut pages of books in the middle.... silly little things
and to this day you still get the odd one popping up in local press reports etc......
but to stop purchasing certain items due to it? nah.... im a parent and though id like to think nothing untoward would appear in something my child bought....
but I AM the parent.... not the shop keeper, ultimately its my job to look out for her.
^That. Though im not a parent.
Honestly, I love my local GameStop because the clerks are mad cool, and its the only place that does the trade in stuff. Plus they carry a lot of old gear that most GS's are sold out of.
With a bit more work, you can sell your games at a price slightly lower to gamestops for practically double the profit, man. I understand if you don't feel like working to get that extra $10 and such every time you've got a game you're sick of and pawn it off to those rat-cheap bastards (I'm guilty of it... .-.), but yeah. Might as well let a fellow gamer buy it cheaper and you get more profit, yeah?
Or you can just copy their used game prices and get epic profit, better you than them. :lol:
/seriously hates gamestop. srsly
