Big Brother wants to know you traded in your games at Gamestop!

Rate this Entry
Some time between my purchase of Kirby: Triple Deluxe on its launch date and my trading-in of said Kirby game for credit towards my Smash 3DS pre-order today, a strange change took place at my local Gamestop. (The stuff in the spoiler tags is just me going into story-telling mode, you can skip it if you want.)


tl;dr -- I apparently have to get my fingerprints taken whenever I want to sell or trade-in any second hand items at Gamestop now.

What I didn't realize, however, is that this is apparently old news, and that in some places customers must do more than just have their prints taken. But because I never encountered this until today I just never knew this was a thing. (I'm totally on top of current events, y'all.)

So lesson of the day: if I buy a physical copy of a game or a gaming device, I better damn well make sure it's something I want, 'cause damnit government please just leave my prints alone! (Not like there was much incentive to trade in stuff at Gamestop anyway since their trade-in values are kinda bad but whatever.)

    Even more reason to avoid Gamestop. The fact that a corporation like them needs government "protection" is borderline ridiculous.
