I bought quite a lot of 'new' GBA games from Gamestation that already had saves on the cartridge. I am sure it was fairly widespread and I cannot remember any court casesKnow your rights and complain! At least get some money back by putting the frighteners on them!
Trades Descriptions Act and the Sale of Goods Act both say that goods have to be as described. Therefore for a product to be called "new" there should have been no transfer to anyone else between the shop and the purchaser. "Even if something is bought and then brought back the next day it is still second-hand,"Dixons was done for this... Occasional accidents happen - but GAME could not do it wholesale as you suggest! It is just illegal.
