250w ago - The Examiner seems to think that GameStop employees are scamming in Killzone 2 and have piled up the 'evidence'.
Apparently, they are selling 'defective' units and not offering refunds as the game has been opened and are only offering to buy it back.
To quote: Derek returns to GameStop the next day (Wednesday) to exchange his disc. After explaining why he wants an exchange, the cashier tells Derek that an Internet connection issue has nothing to do with the disc and that it's likely a problem with the PS3 or his Internet Service Provider. Derek explains that it didn't work on his friend's PS3 either, which the GameStop employee called "a coincidence".
Derek is told that the only thing they can do since the game is opened and is, from their judgment, not defective is to buy it back. They weren't offering any replacements unless he wanted to wait an extra week for their next shipment. Derek's choices are to keep the game or sell it back to GameStop. Believing the game to be broken and not wanting to wait, he sells the game back.
Derek's friend kept his game, which magically started working the day of the Official launch. Derek hoped he could get his game back from GameStop after he explained the situation, but they just weren't having it.
