UK Chain Warns Buyers of Missing Used Game DLC

MCV (via GamePolitics) reports that the UK video game shop GAME has started placing warning stickers on used games that no longer have included DLC in response to the US lawsuit against GameStop over that very issue.

"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," a GAME representative explained to MCV.

The move is a good one for informing customers what they are purchasing as well as avoiding any future legal drama, especially with the UK's aggressive consumer protection laws.

    I think this is a wise move :)

      Gamestop should follow suit and follow that up by lowering the ridiculous prices they charge for their used games.

        who is dumb enough to pay ridiculous prices for a used game in the first place anyway?
