No, it doesn’t work

The guy who did this comic asked if this worked.  The answer is no, at least not at our local store.  I used to work at GameStop, and though the store’s policies were occasionally……well, I won’t say, but the point is this scenario had already been thought of.  Long ago.  When I worked there, if you brought a opened game in due to damage or whatever and we exchanged it for a new game, it was store policy to open the new game before handing it to you.  We also were required to prepare a new receipt showing that you exchanged the game.  Because, you know, we weren’t idiots.

So my recommendation is don’t bother.  If you are going to buy a game, especially a new one that costs $60, be sure you want that game.
