Sorry for the second post but, And sorry to hear what happened to you. Usually they would suggest you the low priced piece. I never had any problems like that.
Actually, if you go to the counter and ask them for the game, instead of picking up from the side shelves. They could've given you the fresh copy of the product. They take the cds out of the drawer because mostly there is a chance for a person to run out with the cover with the cd in it. *...wow..o.O...* Also, they do that because sometimes dont have the new copy of it, it is yellow tagged, they wont have a manual for it. The worst piece ever you'll find is when you'll go to the side shelves and see those black boxes that has just the name written on it no back picture, or a theme to read, or a menual. The very worst thing you'll ever see is when they will just give you the cd..(I've had one of those when I was buying dante inferno for psp.)
If you want a new piece and they dont have it on stock, you can request them to order it for you and you can pick it up later. =\
I dont know why but I've been buying games from EB ever since I got my ps1 at the age of 17 so. I honestly dont see what brings everyone to think EB game is doing wrong.
It isnt just a memo leaked, its the word around, and it is what you guys wanted right? I mean I am sure I heard someone saying "EB games selling pre-owned games is wrong, which is bad for independent game studios."
EDIT: I know, I know; I am sorry, I cant help but contradict every fuckin thread where I see something miss judged or just for the sake of discussion.
