GAME adds DLC warning on pre-owned

UK retailer game have announced that they’ll be placing warning stickers on pre-owned copies of games that do not include the DLC that you’d find if you were buying a brand new retail copy of it.

The move comes after GameStop in the US were sued after a customer was sold the game Dragon Age: Origins and felt “deceptively mislead” by the game not coming with the DLC.

“We have been developing a policy for notifying customers at the point of purchase which was implemented last week in-store,” a GAME spokesperson told MCV.

“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.”

[Thanks MCV]
