According to Loot-Ninja, an employee of GameStop apparently told a shopper that "I know it's shady, but corporate makes me push the cheaper knockoffs because they make more money off of them" as he attempted to offer them a Logitech PS3 controller instead of an official one.
To quote: When my buddy asked for a PS3 controller, the clerk said "no problem" and moved toward the controllers section. He first showed us the Logitech version of a PS3 controller to which I responded, "I thought we were friends?"
The clerk laughed and looked at me and then pulled down an official PS3 controller. He then told me that he felt bad even offering the Logitech controller, which he admitted was cheaper in quality and would probably not last as long. I knew that already, but what he said next was interesting.
"I know it's shady, but corporate makes me push the cheaper knockoffs because they make more money off of them." Pretty messed up since if I wasn't with my friend, he may have been lead to buy an inferior controller just to save a few bucks and then regretted it in the long run.
How many parents fall into this trap on a daily basis just so that GameStop can make more cash? Sad that the employees are forced to do this as well. What do you think?
