Best Buy's Geek Squad Strikes Again

I know, I know, talking about crazy weird Best Buy Geek Squad “services” is kind of old. But, you know what? It always gives me a good laugh. So, in the tradition of our previous piece on the fact that they charge for PS3 firmware upgrades, I now present to you the Geek Squad wanting to install your actual PS3 games onto the system for you. This requires them to slide the game disc into the PS3, sit back, sip a Mountain Dew and wait for the automatic install to complete. If it’s an optional install, they might have to break from their cheese ball eating to press one button on the DualShock 3.

This sticker was on all copies of Vanquish, Uncharted 2: Among Thieves – Game of the Year Edition, as well as a few other recently released titles, at my local Best Buy. Mind you, most of the PS3 games did not have this sticker, but there were several that did. And I laughed out loud right there in the store, then promptly snapped this shot with a blue-shirted employee looking at me funny. It’s good for a laugh, at least.
