A couple days ago I got a call at like 8pm from EB Games(live in Canada) confirming my pre-order of GTAV, which first seemed strange seeing as how the game isn't out for a few months and I only put 5 dollars on it cause I didn't want to have some shitty 5 dollar gift card. I wouldn't have cared if that was all it was, but the clerk then started going on about how I could upgrade my pre-order to one of the special editions, annoying but it's EB/Gamestop so I expected it and he was respectful when I said I wasn't interested. What troubled me though is that he then quickly began telling me about how I could pre-order the PS4 and Xbox One, stuff that has nothing to do with my current pre-order and doesn't come out until the fall.
I'd understand if I was in store and they were trying to push this stuff on me, it's understandable they are a business and want to make more sales. I was at home though and they used the information I gave them for my pre-order to essentially give me an ad for the new consoles over my cell phone. It's totally ethically wrong but I am starting to wonder the legality of it as well, I'm sure in their ToS they have something about being able to use your info but it's still fucked up. I normally don't care about their practices because I normally use stuff like craigslist for used games, and while many of them are not super fair to the consumer they are reasonable as a business. This though pissed me off, for all they know I could have limited minutes or be roaming and a call from them trying to sell me the new consoles is pretty shitty. Has this happened to other people, sure it happened to people who also have pre-orders from my local EB but I wonder about those in the US or other parts of Canada?
