Are all *new* games sealed though
I saw a shelfull of 'Metroid: Other M' in Asda at the weekend. All were supposedly new, however, none were sealed in cellophane which seemed a tad strange!! Anyway, not only were the cases all really scabby, but there was actually a used copy in the replay section that externally looked newer!!
As an aside, I was also wondering if all titles wrapped in cellophane have some sort of tearaway strip on them
Whilst I appreciate that only first party Nintendo games have red/black Nintendo strips I have noticed that most other games still have tearaway strips alhough these are blank (except for the red recycle symbol). Does anything get wrapped in plain cellophane without some sort of tear strip
The reason I ask is that years of buying CDs and Dvds has left me very cynical over over an item's supposed condition. Resealing and recasing *used* goods to disguise true origin is a scourge.
