GAME finally adds DLC warning to pre-owned games

UK retailer hopes to sidestep potential lawsuits

For a good while now, UK retailer GAME has been selling second-hand editions of games like Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare Game of the Year Edition without warning consumers that the download code for the extra maps may not work.

At some points they were even charging more for the GOTY Edition than they were for the regular one.

After reports that GameStop is being sued by a disgruntled customer who bought a second hand copy of Dragon Age: Origins and was frustrated by the game not having the DLC advertised on the packaging, GAME are finally implementing a DLC warning for pre-owned stock.

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