I swear... This on-disk DLC and Online Passes are so asinine. It's like their blatantly trying to rip our money from our wallets.

I'm pretty disappointed that it is Gamestop getting in trouble for this and not the publishers. It is after all the publishers using false advertising, not gamestop. As much as I'd like to think "Oh disk locked content will get attention!" we all know what won't happen.

Going to have to agree, it's not really Gamestop's fault that companies advertise on disc DLC for their games, and it's pretty obvious if you buy a used game you won't get it unless you're insanely lucky.

I live in CA how did i not hear about this? I've been screwed by gamestop (just from buying new games) so many times I would have loved to be part of this.

It's because of games like uncharted 3. gamestop sells it for $55 used, when you buy it you still have to pay taxes then buy an online pass which would make it cost more than a new game. If some one traded in GT5 XL edition they would charge $5 less but people would have to pay an extra $30 for the missing dlc it comes with.

This is just the first step in getting back at the publishers. Soon the courts will recognize dlc as Extortion.


We should be able to trade our games in to the publisher. We could get a discount on their next games and they can recycle the old ones they get back.

You're more hopeful than me Aeolus. The courts tend to side with greed.

When I go to GameStop to buy games and any thing I need for my systems like an extra power cord or something else. I will not sell my games there any more because when I was going to sell a game there that I only used once, they sold it to me for about $1.00 and the game was worth at lest around 10-15 dollors.

Aren't they required to mention that anyway. Gamestation always tell me that the codes (when i buy a game used) 99.9% of the time have been used.

I went to eb games last night and was absolutly shocked that they were selling used games only 5$ below brand new. These games had messy covers and a phat used sticker on them, who wants to own that? Its *bleep*. That they get away with charging only 5$ off. Used games should be half off at the very LEAST. I don't even play used games, what angered me the most out of this was the fact that "greatest hits" games were nowhere to be seen.
