I just picked up Sleeping Dogs for PS3 at Walmart and to my dismay there is a gaudy Walmart graphic printed on the cover. I thought it was just a sticker I could peel off and had I known it was printed on I would've bought the game elsewhere.
I know some of you will not care about this first world problem, or make snarky comments about purchasing from Walmart, and claim PC gaming/digital download superiority but fuck I'm paying $60 for a retail product 'cause I like to collect physical things.
This is pure shit and totally devalues the product and defaces the otherwise cool cover art. I called up Square/Enix and the customer service guy totally agreed and forwarded my words to corporate. I also filed a complaint with Walmart's corporate buyer and explained why this is some lame ass business. They shouldn't gimp your copy with their branding because you bought a first run game with a DLC bonus. I hope more people complain so retailers and publishers stop doing this but I also see this shit as another reason to go all digital next generation. /rant
