Address to submit a claim form (REQUIRED):
Details: The GameStop used game settlement will resolve a class action lawsuit, entitled James Collins v. GameStop Corp., that alleges GameStop and certain subsidiaries failed to adequately warn consumers that although certain downloadable content may have been available on certain games when purchased new, such content may not have been available when the same game was sold used by GameStop unless consumers paid an additional fee.
GameStop denies any liability, but has agreed to a class action lawsuit settlement to avoid the expense of ongoing litigation.
Further details on the proposed class action lawsuit settlement can be found at www.GameStopSettlement.com.
