Yesterday it was revealed that Batman: Arkham City was gating its Catwoman levels behind an online passcode, locking used and offline gamers out of four campaign chapters. That doesn't sit well with GameStop, and the retailer has pledged to offer Catwoman codes to all its used customers!
GameStop announced in a memo that used and pre-owned consumers would be getting codes, negating the entire point of the code. This seems to be a very bold statement on the part of the retail chain, and one I can't see Warner Brothers completely appreciating.
That's a competitively ballsy move, and a rather righteous answer to something quite a few gamers find unacceptable. Whatever one might think of GameStop, you gotta admire the testicles on display.
