Gamestop Responds to Greedy Dumpster Diving Video.
“Hey GameStop fans. We completely agree with the suggestions of donating games or accessories to charitable organizations,” GameStop said. “We do that routinely with our partners Ronald McDonald House Charities, Make-A-Wish Foundation, and St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital.”
“Regarding the Dumpster Video: It is our company practice to discard or destroy products that are damaged, defective, no longer work, or cannot be repaired,” it added. “It is our understanding that this was the case with the product shown in the video.”
In the YouTube video–which has gathered more than 536,000 views–a man visits a GameStop dumpster and rips the company for “cutting” game discs and controller cords to make them unusable. “Why is it that you throw away all of your items instead of donating them to kids?” he asks.
“You buy your games cheap, you sell your games high, and you’re cheap,” he adds. “GameStop, you’re horrible.” ~ Gamespot
