In an attempt to cover their behinds, GAME has introduced warning stickers on pre-owned games, informing buyers that they won’t receive new game DLC bonuses.
This is mostly for games like Mass Effect 2, which features DLC bonuses throughout the ‘Cerberus network.’ According to Game:
“We have been developing a policy for notifying customers at the point of purchase which was implemented last week in-store.
“Pre-owned copies of applicable titles have stickers on them saying ‘check with staff for availability of downloadable content’, giving staff the chance to explain clearly the difference so that our customers understand the benefits of buying both pre-owned and mint.”
The stickers are there to prevent confusion, and in rare cases, a lawsuit.
