Soon they'll be doing cavity searches on your children when they want to trade in a game, because you know, they might be crime lords.

There was another topic on here where most people said they didn't hate GameStop, sure glad you guys support your rights slowly being stripped away.

I really hope your rapid progression into becoming a police-state country doesn't rub off on Canada, we still have freedom here.

This is what I'm talking about.
You people are so blind to it, that a company asking for your fingerprints so you can trade in a video game isn't intrusive and seems normal.
So sad...

We should just shut up and do whatever the corporations tell us to, and immediately buy any Sony first party titles.

If we all do this, we will be safe.

It's basically in high crime areas, it's basically a pawn shop. Pawn shops in some places do the same.

Well I dont like GS and I do not buy from them. However, Tales of Hearts R for Vita is only being sold by them and I want to support Namco and the Tales of franchise. So its a toughy.

You should spend less time trolling and more time taking care of those "2 beautiful ladies".

This is for designated huge crime pop area's only. Requested by local authorities and not them trying to take your identity.

Am I a sheep if I just don't care...because I don't.

It seems to just be in a somewhat trial phase, and I severely doubt the people that this effects are going to just roll over and take it. This is hardly an instance of having my rights taken away as they're not forcing me to buy games there. Its also only targeted for high crime areas and slightly influenced by the police department if I'm understanding the article right. I don't trade in games though so like I said I just don't care.

The local authorities didn't request it, though. The news I heard was Gamestop was doing this to be proactive. In a way, it is basically saying if you live in a poor neighborhood you will need to be fingerprinted.

I just say we shut up and do what they say.
