That's annoying, yes. But that's how it goes.

And as a perfectionist, it somewhat bothers me to see how that text is written. So many errors but that's your style.

You could always buy your games elsewhere.

this is how Gamespot made huge profits

mostly from USED games.. buy for $10-$20 (or maybe less) and sell back for just $5-$10 cheaper than the new price

retailers don't make a lot of money from NEW games.. most of the profits are from USED games

this is why retailers like Amazon, Bestbuy and Wal-mart want a piece of the profits from USED games as well

personally i would just use craiglist to sell the game

selling games from one gamer to another gamer is the best method-- cutting out the middle man

1- you can sell your game back at a higher price
2- the other gamer got the game cheaper compare to gamestop's used price

it's a win win situation for both parties

personally i don't shop at gamestop-- when i asked if they have a NEW PSP

they gave me a psp without its packaging ? that was it for me

it's like buying from ebay sellers-- most don't know the meaning of "NEW"

Wow... okay
Because obviously people like you still takes the deal and they have a business to run? They are wellknown and can easily sell the game for you, you are paying them for that. Use steam instead, they now offer refund if you find out you don't like the game or whatever within 2 hours of gametime and 14 days of purchasing it..

y'know...
A rental could be seen as extended demo time.
Gamestop is a business, and is out to make money.
If you were looking to buy the game only to sell it back to make the money back, good luck. Not going to happen.
Maybe on eBay or craigslist.
As someone else suggested, with Steam and less than 2 hours gameplay within 14 days, you get your refund.

Another suggestion that I don't think has been used yet:
find someone else who has a game you want that they bought. Maybe they want the game you are trying to sell.
Make a trade.

If the software does not allow this, the only thing I can say is buyer beware. Do your research next time. Sorry Charlie, you're stuck with it.
