GameStop’s Used Video Games

July 2015: This action was voluntarily dismissed with prejudice, the reasons for which have not been disclosed.

October 2014: A class-action was filed against GameStop (and later transferred to federal court in December) for allegedly misleading customers about the content and functionality of used video games, including Battlefield 3: Limited Edition, Assassin’s Creed III, NBA Live ’09, and Rock Band 2. According to the plaintiffs, the boxes for used video games represent that the games come with all of the features displayed on the box (such as characters, levels, and the ability to play online) when, in reality, some of the features must be downloaded using a one-time “use code” and the used games either do not include the code or it has already been used. (Larkin et al v. GameStop, Inc., Case No. 14-cv-24596, S. D. FL.).
