It's like you don't have a decent conversation with the clerk about how you're both playing DeSu2.

But seriously, that's like buying underwear or condoms and trying to hide it. It's their job to get it for you, they've seen worse.

Move to Texas. Surprisingly the best place to get new and used weeb games. I remember not being able to find Project Diva F in all of Michigan, but there's one on every shelf in Texas.

That reminds me, when I was getting Akiba's Trip for the PS4 one of the employers there didn't know what I was asking for until another one came in and told him about it.
The one that didn't know about it later got off work with said game in hand.

if it's the last copy you get the display box.


In retail it's called a "dead" copy.

OP carried an empty case to the counter and asked for the game. Clerk assumed he wanted a pre-owned copy since he brought the empty, pre-owned case to the counter. If you're buying new you just walk to the counter and ask for a copy.
>>
>>323589596
>>323591396
Or, the much, much more likely scenario:

The Gamestop employee assumed OP was buying used given that OP carried the used case up to the counter and asked for the game. When you pick up the pre-owned case with the pre-owned price tag on it and bring it up front to buy, the cashier is going to assume you're buying used. Because that's what you do when you buy a used, not new, game. If you want a new copy, you just ask for a new copy and don't carry the cracked, jizz-stained case from the pre-owned shelf over to the counter.

And why would you buy anything new at Gamestop anyway? Buying used is the only reason to shop there in the first place.
