Gamestop opening new games now..

Idk why they have started doing this but its starting to get annoying. Many of the older release game that you buy "new" at gamestop they will often give you an already opened game from behind the counter. They just place tape on the side and slap a "new" sticker on the over which is a pain to get off lol.

Why do they do this, why open up a new game and sell it as new?

It was annoying at first but now today I bought Medal of Honor there new which had been already pre opened like above and got it home to find out that the Online Pass was also missing from the box.. this is the second time i've had this happen as well. (the first time was a couple months ago with Dirt 3)

Has anyone else had this problem with Gamestop?

they do the same in the uk i usually just go to the counter an ask for a sealed copy

If it has been opened, its no longer new.  Just ask Walmart.  I have asked for a new copy at GameStop and been handed an opened copy.  But when I ask for a sealed copy, they always get me one.

It's still a new copy of the game and they have been doing it for years.

Weird, so basically im just screwed out of the online pass lol? Or if I bring it back they can get me one or an unopened one.

i'd take it back you payed for it new which should include the online pass take it back an ask for a sealed copy

I've always received all inserts at Gamestop when I buy new games. You must be experiencing some corruption from your local stores management or you mistakenly bought a used copy. Take it back and request a copy with the online pass.

Often times they run out of sealed copies and all they have left the display copy. They don't keep the disk in display cases to prevent thievery. So even though the case was opened up, the disk has never seen the inside of a 360.

[/quote]It most certainly ISNT new once its been opened.  Even if you want to play semantic games about the disc never being played, you cant prove that, and grimy fingerprints from moving it from the box to the paper sleeve make it used.  End of Story.  Dont ever pay new prices for something that has been opened.  Ask for a sealed copy.  If dont have one, go somewhere else.

Why didn't you just ask for a sealed copy before leaving the store? If it's obvious the case has been opened you run the risk of any codes not being there. Live and learn.

The one time GS gave me a display copy I opened it in front of them to make sure the codes for MP were there and they were, although I know the guys at my store pretty well so they would never *** me over.
