I recently bought two DS games from an ebgames really close to campus here. They both came without shrink wrap on them, and with a total of 5 stickers on each box. My copy of Advance Wars wasn't even on the shelf yet (release day), and it was already fouled up. I spent 8mins or so with some WD-40 and cotton balls cleaning up the cases at home. I stopped in today with a friend and asked why most of the new titles (especially DS games) were coming without shrink wrap. I'm not one normally to cry foul over disappointing customer service, but the guy blew us off completely. He dismissed our complaints claiming the stickers come off easily. Simply not true, they use very cheap stickers that shred and leave hard to remove goo all over the case. When I've bought used games at Gamestop in the mall, they use easily peelable stickers. He also claimed they use that method so they can have boxes sitting out. That's great and all, but all the copies behind the counter do not need to be stickered up. I informed him that I would no longer purchase new games there in that fashion. I rather support a videogame store than Walmart, but the Walmart is equally accessible to me and has games shrinkwrapped. I will also try to contact a store manager sometime to file my complaint. So besides venting steam here, I thought I should ask you guys your thoughts and experiences with this problem. Also, the titles come to the store shrinkwrapped right? I assumed they are going out of their way to advertise all over my cases.
