What happens if gamestop gives me a defective NEW game?

like the disk has a scratch on it

do they replace it with a new copy?

You learn your lesson to never buy new from GameStop. I learned that a while ago, the easy way.

Let me be more polite. You should take it back. I'd be willing to bet that they won't believe you, but they will probably exchange it for another copy of the same game.

Return policy on the back of their receipt:
1. A receipt is required for all returns and exchanges.
2. Unopened new merchandise (except tablets)=full refund within 30 days of purchase
3. Opened new merchandise (including tablets)= identical exchange within 30 days of purchase (no refunds)

You fall under 1 and 3.

Not to be a jerk or anything, but stores usually have return policies on their sites. And you can also google it. :P

I don't think I've gotten a defective 'New' copy from GameStop before, but yeah - they should be able to replace it.

The same thing that happens if any store sells you defective goods: you return it .

9 times out of 10 they'll do it without fuss. I did have to prove to them once that my controller was crapping out on me.
