7,500 Shoppers Unknowningly Signed Their Souls Over To A British Video Game Retailer

April 14, 2010


Apparently over 7,500 online shoppers unknowingly signed their souls over to British video game retailer Gamestation because nobody takes the time to read the terms and conditions of a sale. WELL NO SHIT! I don't even take the time to reread Geekologie articles I've written. But only because perfection doesn't need editing.

GameStation added the "immortal soul clause" to online purchases earlier this month stating customers granted them the right to claim their soul.

While all shoppers during the test were given a simple tick box option to opt out, very few did this, which would have also rewarded them with a £5 voucher.

The store claims this show 88 percent of people do not read the terms and conditions of a website before they make a purchase.

Bosses also say they will not be enforcing their rights and will now email customers nullifying any claim on their soul.

Listen: as a guy who sold his soul a long time ago for a blogging job, I've got to admit: I don't really miss it. And I'm not just saying that because I pawned my conscious too, but I am running out of things to sell.
I'll paper/rock/scissors you for a kidney.
