GameStop Tries To Rip Off Customers

Video game retailer GameStop is finding themselves in a bit of trouble today as it has been uncovered that they have been removing coupons from the PC game Deus Ex: Human Revolution, coupons that would allow the buyer to get a second copy of the game for free.

Apparently in an effort to make video game buyers everywhere very angry, GameStop has been removing coupons that are inside of the PC game Deus Ex: Human Revolution.  The coupon inside the game would give users who subscribe to the OnLive cloud gaming service a free download of the game, which would end up saving that person $50.

GameStop is hiding behind a ridiculous policy right now in order to defend themselves:

Regarding the Deus Ex OnLive Codes: GameStop’s policy is that we do not promote competitive services without a formal partnership

So is it ok for GameStop to do this?  Maybe but the games distributor, Square Enix, might have a case against it.  It would be under the fact that one business is hurting another’s business.  It all seems a bit shady to me.  You can more on this at Wired.com
