I know this isn't exactly on-topic per say, though it does have to do with Gamestop and where a lot of people buy and pre-order their games.

http://pc.gamespy.com/articles/119/1190175p1.html

Gamestop management has sent out letters to have employees open Deus Ex (PC) boxes and remove coupon codes for the free OnLive service and digital download of the game because they don't feel like taking part in Square's free promotion to customers that buy the hard copy.

This coupon removal is not listed on the website either. It's just something to be cautious about when future 3DS games offer certain DLC codes etc...Gamestop may actually remove it before selling it to you.

I honestly hoped they get sued for that. If I didn't already have preorders at gamestop I'd never shop there again, and after I get the games I do have preordered that's it. They're not seeing another penny from me.

They likely will be sued.

Just asked a friend that is a manager at one. He confirmed it, but doesn't know why they're doing it.

I believe it's because GameStop is going to step into the video-game streaming market so OnLive is a direct competitor.

Yeah saw this on ARS. You can easily get into a new game and reshrinkwrap it without breaking the seal much of the time. I know this from working at Game Crazy.

However I used my shrink wrapping powers for good, buy buffing and shrink wrapping used games for people buying them as gifts!

I doubt they could be sued over this. When a store buys merchandise, it's theirs to do with as they please, just like any customer.

Not really, if they're trying to sell it as new. They've removed product material which I heavily suspect is fraud.
Good idea: giving the kender a shiny coin for disabling the trapped hall.
Bad idea: showing the kender a shiny coin and tossing it down the trapped hall.

Saw this on another board.

I just laughed it off.
