Ok, and you know this how?JackWhyte wrote: ↑Oct 10th, 2012 4:42 pmdo you even know what we're talking about?
we're referring to the wellknown practice of source employees putting piles of games on hold, for months or even years, without paying a cent and just waiting for the prices to drop. that's not only unethical but it's against company policy to do this but they still do. so in many source stores, these hold-piles sit hidden in the back for months and months while the games drop from $20 to $15 to $10 to $5 and then once it hits 96 cents the manager then buys it himself.
that's far worse than hoarding and it's really theft or misappropriation of stock
I'm sure a small number do it, but it must be easy to prove the issue is widespread since it's a "wellknown practice".
If they do this, it's a shame, but I don't think it's eliminating all stock. I still thinks that's mostly hoarders. The two downtown Toronto stores close to me apparently had lineups of more people than there was stock to get this game. Not proof of hoarding, of course, but shows that thanks to RFD, games are snapped up ASAP. I'd say that's more than likely the explanation than every Source having shady employees.
