So I buy a “new” SF4 madcats fightstick from gamestop (mistake). They say its on sale for 49.99. The box is pretty beat up but I take a look at the stick inside and it looks ok. I get it home and find out that the factory seal on the body of the stick has been broken. I call them up and ask if they just sold me a used or refurbished stick claiming that its new and they only say, “if you bring it back, we can give you your money back.” And I’m like, “yeah but I’m afraid you’re just going to repackage it and sell it to someone else as new.”. And they said something like, “whatever we do in the store is our business.”
WTF? This is totally unethical. Only at gamestop would they assume its ok to take a used item and sell it as new. I wouldn’t be so mad if the sticker said “used” on it. I would have still bought it (assuming it was a used price). I refuse to believe business ethics like this can go by totally unchecked.
