The store policy change will only take place in California for the next two years and is the result of a class action lawsuit brought by law firm Baron & Budd. Stores will be required to post signs warning customers that used games advertising free DLC may require additional fees to access that content.
“The in-store and online warnings are an important benefit under the settlement as well, because if GameStop discloses the truth to consumers, it is unlikely that they will be able to continue selling used copies of certain games for only $5 less than the price of a new copy”, the Baron & Budd attorneys said in a statement. “In fact, we already know that not long after the lawsuit was filed, GameStop lowered prices for used copies of many of the game titles identified in the lawsuit.”
