News: Gamestop Opening New Games and Throwing Away Content

Deus Ex Human Revolution for PC comes with a free copy of the game for OnLive.  Gamestop employees have been instructed to open Deus Ex Human Revolution and discard this piece of content, repackage the game, and sell it as new.  Gamestop does not currently have a live streaming service but does own the digital distribution company Impulse for PC.
