GameStop, the largest used video game retailer in the world has just been hit with a lawsuit over downloadable content in some used games. According to the suit, GameStop has “fraudulently, unfairly, unlawfully and deceptively [misleading] consumers at the time of their purchase to believe that the game comes with free downloadable content, when it fact, it does not.” Essentially meaning that the DLC promised on the game box is not actually in the package.

Some of the games mentioned within the suit include big name titles such as Dragon Age: Origins, Battlefield: Bad Company 2 and Mass Effect 2. The plaintiff, James Collins believes that the limited window in which GameStop allows returns is what has compounded the problem.
