GameStop Loses Court Case in California, and The Fallout Could Be Interesting
GameStop, one of the largest video game retailers in the world, has officially lost a case against California. As reported by Joystiq, GameStop will now have to clearly indicate when a used game has an online fee that is applicable with a used copy.
Also, GameStop is being required to reimburse consumers who purchased a game that “qualified” as stated in the court docket with a $10 check and $5 store coupon if they are a PowerUp Member, or a $5 check and $10 store coupon if they are not.
I would like to see this policy implemented at all GameStop locations nationwide, as it would probably help game sales for “new” copies, and will give the consumer more knowledge–especially when purchasing as a gift.
What do you guys think? Let us know in the comments.
