    Not bad, Apple sells you them for huge prices, and Gamestop buys it back for very little. Conspiracy?

    Well, I can't see this happening in Sweden because buying games in store here is for the worthless consumer that gets tricked all the time.

    They have been doing this for awhile at EB Games and Game in Australia.
    Although they are owned by Gamestop.

    Does this mean they'll be selling cheap used/refurbished iCraps as well?

    To explain my first post in this thread. Anyone who has used Apple products long enough knows that apple HATES it when someone sells their product first or second hand without being an "officially licensed" Apple dealer. I'm wondering if GameStop went through all the proper channels to to make "nicey nice" with Apple. If not, GameStop is opening a whole new bag of worms. Maybe both companies could take a beating and LEARN something for once.

    Hey, if I'm too lazy to sell it on eBay, I can just go to my Gamestop and sell it there.

    I see no reason to baw about it. A little less money, but if you bought an iPod in the first place, you're probably not poor.

    ah.

    Well i dont think that apple has much to say, since they dont hold much ground after the product has left the store. I udnerstand what your saying but i would think that gamestop would have been doing this already if they had not gone and made nice with apple.
