When I worked at best buy the policy was if you don't damage the box it isn't tight enough.
at least they know they won't get stolen
I used to be a video game like you, but then I took a security measure to the box
Anyone who thinks those spider wraps should be any more lose hasn't worked retail before. We've got to do similar with many mice keyboards, snags k webcams, phone cases. Those things are real easy to slide off if even just a little too loose.
But it's a double edged blade here, the other issue being that a lot of times stores aren't properly setup to merchandise product like this. Corp. Office wants you to display all of the Skyrim boxes on the end l floor, something like display cases would be great because you don't have to damage the box, but you've only 2 display cases and they're already in use...
Telling people this is probably a dick move, but if you don't over-tighten those things it's possible to wiggle them right off any rectangular box.
The "Only @ Best Buy" stickers are perfect
They're all like mini Bane heads
Oh BestBuy.. How the fuck are you still in business? Seriously?
The crime here is paying $75 for Skyrim (again) in a "limited edition bundle" form with some plastic swag when it's often available on Steam for 20 bucks (yes I'm aware this is a XBone version but I assume they have sales as well). The whole special "pay twice as much for mass produced thing but we are calling it limited that goes on shelf" edition always eluded me. They probably make more of the doodads than the games in these kits.
I work in retail. The managers insist upon this. I've literally been told in so many words, if the box isn't damaged, you have to tighten it more. They will actually make you fix it if you don't do it "right." In fact, this set-up is actually not secure enough. I'd get written up for this, because they aren't actually physically fastened to the shelf. Normally, a video game would go in a glass case, but we don't have enough cases to avoid using spider wraps entirely, and as far as corporate is concerned, a spider wrap that tight is *almost* tight enough... but not quite.
